READ: George Conway: ‘Given That Trump Has Repeatedly Lied About the Daniels & McDougal Payments…Why Should We Take His Word…?’


White House advisor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday defended President Donald Trump’s denials that he knew about illegal hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal shortly before the 2016 election.

Conway appeared on CNN and meandered through a series of non-answers when asked why Trump initially lied about knowing about the payments. Conway insisted Trump learned of the payments in April and said:

“The President said he never directed Cohen to break the law.”

Trump’s prison-bound former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen and AMI’s David Pecker have since told investigators that Trump instructed them to violate campaign finance laws to keep the affairs he had with Daniels and McDougal quiet ahead of the election.

Watch Conway and Cuomo below:

Following her stint on CNN, Conway’s husband George, an attorney, took to Twitter to seemingly contradict his wife’s argument.

“Given that Trump has repeatedly lied about the Daniels and McDougal payments,” wrote Conway, “and given that he lies about virtually everything else, to the point that his own former personal lawyer described him as a “f****ing liar”—why should we take his word over that of federal prosecutors?”

Conway’s tweets are always a hit, but oh to be a fly on the wall in that house.

Also on Friday, Conway published an op-ed in The Washington Post in which he explains why the payments made to Daniels and McDougal constitute breaches of campaign finance laws.
