Kellyanne Conway claims a woman assaulted her in a Maryland restaurant last year

Published

Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has told CNN that a 63-year-old woman assaulted her while she was out eating dinner with her daughter at a restaurant in Maryland last year.

In an interview with CNN, Conway describes how the incident took place while she was having dinner at a Mexican restaurant called Uncle Julio’s in Bethesda, Maryland.

“Somebody was grabbing me from behind, grabbing my arms, and was shaking me to the point where I felt maybe somebody was hugging me,” Conway explained. “She was out of control. I don’t even know how to explain her to you. She was just, her whole face was terror and anger. She was right here, and my daughter was right there. She ought to pay for that.”

The alleged assailant, a woman named Mary Elizabeth Inabinett, left the restaurant before Conway called 911 to report the alleged assault. Inabinnett has subsequently been charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct, although her attorney says she denies the charges and plans to plead not guilty at her trial next month.

“Ms. Inabinett saw Kellyanne Conway, a public figure, in a public place, and exercised her First Amendment right to express her personal opinions,” Inabinnett’s attorney said. “She did not assault Ms. Conway. The facts at trial will show this to be true, and show Ms. Conway’s account to be false.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta busts Trump’s whistleblower lies: ‘Just not answering questions in a straightforward fashion’

Published

CNN's Jim Acosta busted several falsehoods in President Donald Trump's remarks from the Oval Office about a whistleblower complaint filed against him by an intelligence official.

The president answered questions about the complaint, which appears to center on a phone call he made to the Ukrainian president, during a White House news conference with Australian prime minister Scott Morrison.

"He did not really answer the question whether or not he spoke with the Ukranian prime minister about former Vice President Joe Biden, at one point saying it doesn't matter what he discussed," Acosta said. "But there are plenty of contradictions here that the president offered up to reporters when he was sitting down in the Oval Office, at one point describing the whistleblower has being partisan and part of a hack job, but at the same time saying he doesn't know who the whistleblower is."

Dem lawmaker encourages acting-DNI to ignore White House and deliver the whistleblower report directly to Congress

Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.

Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.

"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."

WATCH: Trump’s long history of spilling America’s secrets to foreign leaders catalogued by CNN’s Avlon

Published

on

President Donald Trump this week claimed that would never be stupid enough to say something inappropriate to foreign officials when he knew that all of his calls were being monitored.

However, CNN's John Avlon on Friday went down the president's long history of making inappropriate comments to foreign leaders, including times when he spilled important intelligence secrets.

Avlon began by noting that Trump has repeatedly cast aspersions on the intelligence community, including when he infamously said that he didn't believe Russia tried to help him win the 2016 election despite multiple intelligence assessments showing just that.
