White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is vows to show up to the upcoming House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing “on behalf of the White House” if Rep. Adam Schiff will be testifying.
Conway, whose husband took a direct public shot at her on Twitter Monday, told reporters at the White House that the House Intelligence Committee chairman is a “fact witness” in the impeachment inquiry and it would be “great” if he is called to testify.
“Our White House counsel has made very clear, dating back to October 8, that this is an unconstitutional and illegitimate process, and we stand by that. We haven’t seen anything to change that,” she said.
“In fact, we’ve seen the Independents pulling away from the Democratic point of view on impeaching the president. We’ve seen these 31 Democrats in Trump-Pence districts getting earfuls when they go home from a lot of people saying, ‘Why aren’t you working for us?’ And 21 of them are freshmen. It is very tough to get re-elected after your freshman year, particularly when you’re in a district like that where you’re going to have the president at the top of the ticket,” Conway said.
“So, they have to be more definitive about what they are doing. And they are not definitive. First, it is in the Judiciary Committee, then it goes over to Intel, now it is back to Judiciary,” Kellyanne Conway continued.
“Is Adam Schiff going to testify? Because he’s a fact witness. That would be great,” she added. “I’ll tell you what, if Adam Schiff testifies, I’ll show up on behalf of the White House.”
Conway slammed the lack of details forthcoming from the House Judiciary Committee which has not yet given the White House the names of the witnesses set to appear.
“What is the process? What will they be discussing? They have constitutional law experts coming in. How is that beneficial?” she said to reporters Monday. “I don’t even understand what they’re doing.”
Conway’s defense of President Trump stands in contrast to her husband’s vocal and persistent criticisms of her boss, which spilled out into the public arena of social media on Monday. George Conway fired a direct shot at his wife after she mocked 2020 presidential contender Joe Biden on Twitter.
“Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe” the White House counselor tweeted, with a 2017 video clip of the former vice president recounting his younger lifeguard days at a Delaware pool and his leg hair.”
“We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?” Conway asked.
“Your boss apparently thought so,” George Conway responded.
