White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday brushed off House Democrats’ current subpoenas and investigations as “a little gratuitous” and an excuse to attack President Donald Trump.
Conway appeared on Fox News’ “Americas Newsroom” to address the House Judiciary Committee’s subpoena of ex-White House counsel Don McGahn after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report revealed that he was a crucial witness in Mueller’s obstruction probe.
House Democrats have also launched investigations into Trump’s tax returns and his administration’s shady security clearance practices.
“When you prosecute and investigate you either refer for indictment or decline to refer for indictment,” Conway said of Mueller’s sweeping Russia and obstruction investigation. “The rest is a little gratuitous for some looking and searching for a way to get the President.”
