WATCH: Kellyanne Conway Says ‘The President Says That Because He’s Known From the Beginning That There Was No Collusion’

Really?

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway—the person who created the phrase “alternative facts” to explain away President Donald Trump’s lies about his inauguration crowd size—did the same tap dance with the Mueller report on Sunday.

In an appearance on ABC’s This Week, Conway claimed her boss was correct to claim the Mueller report provided complete exoneration for Trump.

Her reasoning?

“The President says that because he’s known from the beginning there was no collusion; there’s no criminal conspiracy between  the Trump campaign and the Kremlin to try to disrupt and spread misinformation about our elections.”

Watch her comments here.

Conway’s comments came just after This Week host Martha Raddatz read the statement in the Mueller report that:

“Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California appeared on This Week directly after Conway. The longtime vocal critic of President Trump labeled Conway’s earlier commentary “alternative facts.”

Schiff stated:

“You heard another display of alternative facts from Kellyanne Conway today where she could not even acknowledge that the Russians tried to help the Trump campaign.”

He added:

“…I’ve been very clear over the last year, year and half that there is ample evidence of collusion in plain sight.”

Watch his rebuttal here.

Schiff was not alone in crying foul over Conway’s assessment of the Mueller report.
