Kellyanne Conway Defends Donald Trump Jr.’s Meeting With Russian Lawyer

Kellyanne Conway on Monday tried to explain why Donald Trump Jr. hadn’t disclosed his confab with a Russian lawyer sooner β€” and why the pretense of learning damning info on Hillary Clinton wasn’t collusion in the slightest.

β€œNo information was received that was meaningful or helpful, and no action was taken,” the top Trump adviser told ABC’s β€œGood Morning America.”

Confronted with a December TV clip of herself insisting conversations between the Trump campaign and Russians β€œnever happened,” Conway tried her best to spin.

β€œWho misled you, and why did Don Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort allow those public denials to stand for so many months?” George Stephanopoulos asked.

β€œAs I understand it, George, some of the disclosure forms have been amended since that time to reflect other meetings including this one,” Conway replied.

β€œ(Trump Jr.) made very clear that no information that was meaningful and helpful was gained from this,” she said. β€œWe have many different meetings in a campaign. Some of them are unhelpful and not particularly meaningful.”

β€œI don’t think you had to go very far, respectfully, to find damaging information or negative information about Hillary Clinton,” she said. β€œShe was a gusher at all times of negative, damaging information.”

β€œLook: The only information, the only people who had information about Russia meddling in summer of 2016 did not work in the Trump campaign,” she said. β€œThey worked in the Obama White House.”
