The Daily Beast reports:
During a typically contentious and lengthy CNN interview on Sunday morning, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway insisted that she didn’t know whether President Donald Trump held up military aid because he wanted Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, Conway first attempted to claim that Biden—who is currently a national frontrunner among Democratic presidential candidates—was not a political rival of Trump’s.
After Conway claimed Trump was merely interested in unsubstantiated claims that the Bidens were guilty of wrongdoing in Ukraine because of public reports about Hunter Biden’s business dealings, she went on to say she was confident Trump never mentioned the 2020 election during his July phone call with the Ukrainian president.
How, on earth, am I still watching Kellyanne Conway steamroll over CNN anchors with nonsense and whataboutism and cognitive dissonance…three years into this presidency?
The only question to put to her: “When did you sell your soul?”#CNNSOTU

“I don’t know whether aid was being held up,” Kellyanne Conway told CNN.
Conway then told “Fox News Sunday” if Trump conditioned aid on a Biden probe, it would not be impeachable.
“Is it a high crime and misdemeanor? I wouldn’t think so,” she said.https://t.co/Mpj75YgCLp
