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

Kellyanne Conway Defends Donald Trump Jr.s Meeting With Russian LawyerKellyanne 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.”
