Kellyanne Conway Drops the Hammer: Comey ‘Should Go Get a Lawyer’

Kellyanne Conway Drops the Hammer: Comey ‘Should Go Get a Lawyer’ White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters at the White House on Monday that former FBI Director James Comey “should go get a lawyer,” because his “leaks and accusations” prompted the Russia investigation. Her comments came in response to special counsel Robert Mueller finding no evidence that the 2016 Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia and the notification to Congress by Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that there was not evidence to support a charge that President Donald Trump obstructed justice in relation to the investigation. In testimony before Congress in June 2017, Comey said he leaked classified memos he wrote to the media in hopes it would prompt the appointment of a special counsel. The former FBI director tweeted a picture of himself looking up in a redwood forest Sunday evening, captioning it, “So many questions.” Graham replied, “Could not agree more. See you soon.”
