White House counselor Kellyanne Conway shrugged off the Wall Street Journal’s reporting that federal prosectors interviewed some in President Donald Trump’s inner circle over the hush money payments to his alleged paramours, saying that “it doesn’t surprise me at all.”

She painted the new revelations as further proof that “people who were promised collusion” are trying to dig up presidential wrongdoing despite the investigations that are already ongoing or completed.

The Journal reported that federal prosecutors spoke with former White House communications director Hope Hicks and former security chief Keith Schiller as part of the investigation, and that they had been gathering information implicating Trump in the situation even before Michael Cohen testified as such.
