Kellyanne Conway was back on Fox News on Monday morning to defend President Donald Trump from impeachment. Shortly before the House Judiciary Committee began an impeachment hearing in which lawyers for the Democrats presented their argument for impeachment, she appeared on the network to say Americans aren’t buying this whole thing.
“For all the incredible buying power in this Trump economy, you know what Americans are not buying this holiday season? Impeachment,” she said.
“As White House counsel Pat Cipollone said two months ago now on October 8th, we regard this as an unconstitutional illegitimate engagement and I think Jerry Nadler makes that very clear when he lies and says that if this were before a jury they would convict in three minutes. Convict on what? He didn’t even specify the charges,” Conway continued.
“If he knew what the charges were, if they were clear and convincing and digestible to the public, we would already know what were in the articles of impeachment. Why is he playing a game of Inspector Clouseau secret squirrel? I’m going to make you wait to see what’s in the article of impeachment. Because they don’t know,” Conway claimed.
She also brought up a new poll that shows Trump is gaining support in battleground states.
“Axios just released polling in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan [that] shows the president is way up from before these impeachment shenanigans began,” she said.
“And probably the Democrats are making Donald Trump a victim to lots of Americans who just want them to join him and get on with the business of the country.”
While Conway continues to be a regular guest on Fox News, Trump ironically wrote a tweet on Sunday bashing the network.
“Don’t get why
puts losers on like
(who got ZERO as presidential candidate before quitting), Pramila Jayapal, David Cicilline and others who are Radical Left Haters? The Dems wouldn’t let
get near their bad ratings debates, yet Fox panders. Pathetic!,” he said.
