'Partisanship Played a Role': Tucker Presses Buzzfeed Editor Over Trump-Russia Dossier Publication

Rep. Gaetz: 'Outrageous' If FBI Used Dossier as Basis for Russia Investigation

Kellyanne Conway pushed back Thursday morning on criticism that the White House and President Trump continually bring up Hillary Clinton to deflect attention from the Russia investigation.

The White House counselor said on "Fox & Friends" that Clinton must be discussed in light of the allegations against the president connected to the Steele dossier.

"I know people love to talk about how we're so obsessed with Hillary Clinton here. The fact is, we only have to talk about her because people won't let go of an election that she lost miserably," said Conway.

President Trump insisted again on Wednesday that there was "no collusion" between his campaign and Russians and went after the FBI for allegedly going easy on Hillary Clinton in the probe into her emails. 

Conway said the media has focused on the "ridiculous, concocted Russia collusion delusion" for a full year while ignoring any positive achievements by the administration, including on the economy. 

She said she's "hopping mad" that the media refuses to inform the American people, bringing up a bipartisan bill signed by Trump on Wednesday to stem the flow of fentanyl into the U.S.

"There's an information under-load about fentanyl," said Conway, referring to the powerful narcotic fueling the nation's opioid crisis.
