Kellyanne Conway's response to Comey interview contradicts Trump's talking point

There are 2 comments on the Yahoo! story from 6 hrs ago, titled Kellyanne Conway On James Comey: "This Guy Swung An Election".

Conway's remarks followed Comey's interview with ABC's Stephanopoulos, in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump and his administration, and encouraged voters to vote Trump out of office.

Conway reversed her argument later Monday morning, arguing that Comey wasn't capable of swinging an election.

Following the much-anticipated #James Comey interview on Sunday night, the White House quickly came to a consensus on how to respond. "He thought the wrong person would win, his people in his household wanted the other person to win". When it was announced that Comey would be releasing a new book, all eyes were set on what details and information would be revealed. As part of that, he participated in an interview that aired Sunday night on ABC in which he called Trump "morally unfit" to be president.

In her chat with Cuomo, Conway insulated that Comey didn't have the power to swing the election, contradicting herself from earlier statements. "I don't think so, '" she said.

Shortly after her lap on the morning shows, Conway told the Daily Beast that she was being "tongue-in-cheek" during her comments on ABC.

Trump tweeted "Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers".

She found the coverage of her words misleading there too. "I don't think so", she wrote.

Days before the election, Trump argued it "took guts" for Comey to "make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition that he had where they're trying to protect her from criminal prosecution".

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, asked Comey if he had ever "been an anonymous source in news reports about matters relating to the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?" or if he had ever "authorized someone else at the FBI to be an anonymous source in news reports about the Trump investigation or the Clinton investigation?"

Trump and the White House later reversed their position on Comey's handling of the Clinton investigation, saying it was actually the reason the president unexpectedly fired him.
