Conway: When It Comes to Hacking, Clinton ‘Got This Party Started’

Instead of taking President-elect Donald Trump’s sarcasm out of context, Kellyanne Conway called upon the Obama White House to end its “permanent campaign” and focus on the one person who opened the door to allow hackers to access America’s secrets — Hillary Clinton.

“She got this party started,” Conway said. “Look, we should really be talking about what we know, not what we don’t. And what we know is that Hillary Clinton selfishly set up a private server that put us all at risk. So when you’re talking about hacking into emails, why have we left behind this piece of evidence that’s right in front of us?”

 

Although there had been pre-election claims Russian hackers were involved in hacking Democratic National Committee files and the email of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, Conway said the Clinton campaign never made it a major issue.

“Let’s roll the tape of everyone, all those geniuses on TV, all the people on Team Clinton. Let’s roll the tape leading up to the actual Election Day. How many people were actually talking about this as interfering in the election?” she said.

“They were talking about what they were going to do in the West Wing, that the path was closed, we can never win. Nobody talked about this,” she said.

Trump did, though, in a comment delivered in July on the subject of thousands of emails Clinton deleted form her private server that the FBI said it was unable to find.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said then. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

But what was brushed off as sarcasm then was taken literally Monday by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.

“He called on Russia to hack his opponent. He called on Russia to attack Secretary Clinton So he certainly had a pretty good sense of which side this activity was coming down on,” Earnest said.

Conway called Earnest “incredibly irresponsible.”

“That is just remarkable. That is breathtaking. I guess he’s just auditioning to be a political pundit after his job is over,” she said.

“That is incredibly disappointing to hear from the podium of the White House press secretary. Because he basically — he essentially stated that the president-elect had knowledge of this, maybe even fanned the flames,” she said.

After being reminded by the hosts of Fox & Friends that President Barack Obama had voiced similar thoughts, Conway said Obama was “trying to re-litigate a political campaign.”

“(Americans) are going to see this as a continuation of the permanent campaign of people who just can’t get over themselves, their bad predictions, frankly, and the fact that they wanted a different result,” she said.
