Conway: Law Enforcement Leaks ‘Should Send A Chill Down Everybody’s Spine’

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was more disturbed by BuzzFeed News’ sources for the bombshell report published Thursday than the contents of the story, she told Fox Business News Friday.

“I’m very, very dismayed that the sourcing in this particular article are two law enforcement officials who are connected to the investigation,” she said. “That should send a chill down everybody’s spine. People should not be leaking information from investigations. I don’t see verification of this from where I sit and I think other outlets that are running with this and putting on BuzzFeed should be reminded about the unverified dossier and its origins as well.”

Like White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley, Conway did not deny the story, which reveals that President Trump directed his then-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the timeline of his work on the fruitless development of a Trump Tower Moscow.
