White House counselor Kellyanne Conway pushed back strongly Friday against former FBI director James Comey’s questioning of President Donald Trump’s marriage, in a forthcoming tell all book.
Comey’s claim centers around repeated alleged attempts by Trump to ask him to investigate claims in a salacious dossier alleging a 2013 encounter between the President and prostitutes in Moscow. The former FBI director claims Trump called him and raised the issue to him on several occasions asking for the FBI to disprove the claim in order to put his wife at peace.
“It bothered [President Trump] if there was ‘even a one percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true,” Comey wrote in his book and noted to Good Morning America. “In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn’t do that?”
Conway took particular exception to this portion of the interview saying “I find that particular excerpt to be really egregious and over the top and unacceptable. I hope people of all political stripes. Including those who didn’t like James Comey in late October of 2016 to push back on it.” She sarcastically characterized him as a “pyschoanalyst” and a “marriage counselor” flatly declaring “frankly put, that’s none of his business.”
