The internet roasts Kellyanne Conway for confessing Comey tipped election to Trump

White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway

After two flailing, back-to-back interviews on Monday morning news shows, the internet completely unleashed on senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway.

After her interview with “Good Morning America” co-host George Stephanopoulos, neo-conservative political analyst Bill Kristol noted one major point Conway seemed to slip up admitting.

“Kellyanne seems to say Trump wouldn’t have won without the Comey announcement 11 days out,” Kristol tweeted.

Meanwhile, former ethics director Walter Shaub had his own commentary about the questionable ethics of the senior counselor.

“Kellyanne Conway, with three ethics violations under your belt, please heed this warning: Don’t advocate for the President’s re-election campaign when you go on CNN after this next commercial break,” Shaub tweeted. “By now, hopefully you’ve heard of the Hatch Act.”

“Things are really getting desperate at the White House if they brought out Kellyanne Conway,” noted former White House aide and CNN commentator Keith Boykin. “She’s already violated the Hatch Act twice for illegal political conduct, and she violated federal ethics laws when she promoted Ivanka Trump’s clothing line on national television.”

There should be universal ‘dismay and disgust’ at Roger Stone’s actions: Judge Amy Berman Jackson

Published

on

Judge Amy Berman Jackson delivered quite the lecture to Trump ally Roger Stone during his sentencing hearing on Thursday.

Shortly before sentencing the longtime right-wing dirty trickster, Jackson delivered a blistering condemnation of Stone's efforts to lie to investigators and intimidate witnesses, all to cover up the truth about his efforts to make contact with WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential election.

"The defendant lied about a matter of great national and international significance," she said. "This is not campaign hijinks. This is not just Roger being Roger."

She also expressed astonishment that anyone would be calling for Stone to be pardoned despite being convicted on seven counts that included perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice. She also said that Stone's assault on the truth was "a threat to our most fundamental institutions, to the very foundation of our democracy."

Roger Stone sentenced to 40 months in prison

Published

on

Donald Trump's longtime aide Roger Stone was sentenced Thursday in a case that has caused a stir in Washington following meddling by the US president and his attorney general.

Stone received a sentence of 40 months in prison.

Stone, one of the Republican leader's allies and "oldest friends," was convicted in November of lying to Congress, tampering with a witness and obstructing the House investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia to cheat in the 2016 election.

Just 10 days ago, four US prosecutors asked a judge to sentence the former political consultant to between seven and nine years in jail. Trump chimed in via his favorite method of communication -- Twitter -- to denounce what he called a "miscarriage of justice."

President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr may have wanted a soft sentence for Roger Stone, but before being sentenced Thursday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson ripped stone to shreds for "indicting himself."

Berman Jackson began by saying that Stone not only lied to Congress, he then threatened violence if others didn't back up his story.
