Kellyanne Conway Spars Against Chris Cuomo About Trump Campaign And Russian Government

In what was supposed to be an 18-minute interview about Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin tied lawyer during the 2016 campaign Monday, Conway deflected her way through nearly 40 minutes in a heated discussion with Chris Cuomo. White House adviser Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman at the time who later resigned due to his controversial ties to the Kremlin, were also both present at the meeting.

"They get into the meeting and it quickly turns into a pretext for Russian adoption, according to his statements, that the comments this woman is making about any type of information on Hillary Clinton were vague". No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. He wants the public to believe that he, Kushner, and Manafort met with a Russian who claimed to have damaging information about Trump's opponent, but did not tell the candidate himself; that this happened even though Trump Jr. and Kushner are close to Trump Sr., and that Trump was at Trump Tower, the site of the meeting, that day, where he lunched with Manafort.

Just a month ago, Trump Jr. tweeted a story that he claimed debunked the notion that the Trump campaign had repeated contact with Russians.

Trump Jr. released two statements about the meeting, explaining that he did not know who she was before they scheduled the talk, and that the topic ended up being a non-campaign issue - adoption.

On GMA, host George Stephanopoulos showed Conway footage from December 2016 when she flat-out denied any such conversations between the Donald Trump campaign and Russians.

"Some of the disclosure forms have been amended since that time to reflect other meetings", including the meeting between Trump Jr. and Veselnitskaya, she said.

Conway repeatedly stated that CNN didn't cover non-Russia Trump stories or other American issues such as the opioid addiction crisis.

"(Trump Jr.) made very clear that no information that was meaningful and helpful was gained from this", she said. "We have many different meetings in the campaign, and some of them are unhelpful and not particularly meaningful". "Some of them are unhelpful and not particularly meaningful". The President had nothing to do with this meeting. Kellyanne Conway later tweeted that she wanted to talk about America while all Cuomo and CNN wants to talk about is Russian Federation.

The senior adviser ultimately pivoted to a favorite Trump talking point: the recent Washington Post report that former President Barack Obama had known about Russian interference in the 2016 election and done little to stop it. I asked Jared and Paul to stop by. We were talking to people in MI, not Moscow, and I think it's important for people to know that. Kellyanne Conway did her best defending President Trump from every question Cuomo threw her way, and Cuomo likewise did his part shielding CNN's reputation from a litany of attacks from Kellyanne.
