Conway: Bernie Is Dems’ Punishment For Impeachment

The Washington Post reports:

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday that the impeachment process gave a boost to Sanders’s presidential candidacy — which she suggested is helpful to her boss. Appearing on Fox News, Conway said Sanders’s ascent amounted to “payback” for the proceedings that resulted in Trump’s impeachment by the House — and ultimate acquittal in the Senate — for his conduct toward Ukraine.

“The payback is actually coming through the nomination of Bernie Sanders,” Conway said during an interview from the North Lawn of the White House. “I’d like to thank Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and the rest of them,” Conway said. “I’d like to thank the Never Trumpers for delivering Bernie Sanders as the possible nominee now. It’s all because of how they spent their time and your money as taxpayers.”
