Trump Campaign Manager Admits Damage Already Done By FBI Leaks

Kellyanne Conway was positively gleeful about their little lie and the damage done.
Views:

The Trump campaign and their surrogates aren't even hiding the fact that the FBI, while unlawfully helping their campaign, has already done the damage they had hoped for.

MSNBC's Brian Williams questioned Trump telling his supporters Hilary is being indicted, which comes from from a report by Bret Baier, which he admitted isn't true.

But Conway was unfazed by any of Williams questions and was elated that the FBI has thrown a wrench into the upcoming election that is most helpful fro Donald Trump.

"The damage is done to Hillary Clinton,” Kellyanne Conway said on MSNBC's "The 11th Hour."

“No matter how it's being termed the voters are hearing it for what it is — a culture of corruption," Conway said to host Pete Williams.

She pivoted to comments made by congressional GOP members such as Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) underscore that Clinton could be confronted with “all types of investigations” if she wins office on Nov. 8th.

The country, Conway said, would “be living this nightmare” from the moment Clinton occupied the White House. Fox’s News’s Bret Baier on Wednesday said there would “likely” be an FBI indictment against the Clinton Foundation for alleged pay-to-play schemes, citing two sources with knowledge of the investigation.

The story has drawn fierce pushback from Hillary Clinton supporters and other news networks, with NBC News, ABC News and CNN all reporting that Baier’s assertion is false.

"Indictment obviously is a very loaded word, Jon, especially in this atmosphere and no one knows if there would or would not be an indictment no matter how strong investigators feel their evidence is," Baier told Fox News Channel’s "Happening Now" anchor Jon Scott.

Trump had previously seized on a Baier’s report, mentioning it during a rally on Thursday in Florida.

Williams, who is slated to host "The 11th Hour" for Brian Williams through Election Day, challenged Conway on not denouncing the report more strenuously.

“As a lawyer, you would concede indictment is not only a term of art, it's a term of law, and that's a big difference to use the expression likely indictment when all the reporting is to the contrary,” Williams said.

“Fine," Conway responded. “It just doesn't change what's in voters' minds right now and you see in the your own polling, you see in the other polling, Brian, which is — even though the polls were tightening before last Friday's explosive announcement by Mr. Comey, you see that voters are putting it in this large cauldron of impressions and images and individuals and issues from which they eventually make a choice.”

Conway describes Rep's McCaul and Chaffetz as some sort of independent thinkers when in reality they are the worst kind of partisans.

They're using their positions of power to sanction bogus investigations to smear a political rival.

A attempted coup is underway. Stop it at the ballot box.
