One cable news stations has accused Kellyanne Conway of being behind White House leaks, as another cable show has barred her from appearing.
CNN’s Dylan Byers reported on Wednesday that sources claim Conway is behind the rumors that President Donald Trump is not happy with the performance of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and is looking to remove him from the position.
This past week rumors began circulating that President Trump was looking for a new press secretary and that a prominent former Navy SEAL was in line for the job.
Those rumors were denied by White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and presidential assistant Steve Bannon.
“Many people sympathetic to Spicer in and out of the White House believe otherwise,” Byers reported. “Five of these sources think the person behind the leaks is Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s ever-visible White House counselor. Though they offer no hard evidence, they say Conway is trying to offload blame for administration setbacks on Spicer to prove she is the more effective public advocate…”
Conway denied the accusations in a statement.
“Absolutely not,” she said. “It’s absolutely false. Sean has my full support, but most importantly, he has the president’s full support. We work as a team.”
On Tuesday night Fox News’ Sean Hannity contended that if Conway were a liberal woman the press might treat her better.
Conway said she didn’t mind tough questions but wants the media to treat her fairly.
But judging by CNN’s article, and MSNBC co host Mika Brzezinski’s decision to ban her from her show, it doesn’t appear that fair treatment is forthcoming.
