Kellyanne Conway continues White House pattern of defying congressional subpoenas


In this case, Conway was likely trying to take attention away from any number of issues showing the president in a negative light: the DOJ grilling the author of the salacious Steele dossier; a court ruling that Trump can't block people on Twitter; or the immigration issue, which Pressley addressed directly in her mic-drop of a tweet.

If she's trying to point out how many people have diverse backgrounds, they're not native Americans, but her whole tirade after that, you know we are sick and exhausted, sick and exhausted of all these people being mean to the troops and being mean to the border patrol and not falling in line with the president's agenda.

Things took a disturbing turn when Beltway Breakfast reporter Andrew Feinberg asked Conway to name the countries Trump thinks the four women (three of whom were born in the U.S.) should return to.

Conway, in response, asked Feinberg, "What's your ethnicity?".

"How is that relevant?"

The chairman of the House Oversight Committee on Monday said the panel will vote to hold White House counselor Kellyanne Conway in contempt of Congress later this month unless she agrees to appear to testify in a hearing.

On Monday, Cummings said the claim of immunity was "completely baseless" and the committee is not asking her to testify about advice she gave Trump or White House policy decisions.

The office said Conway erred by "disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media".

In this same gaggle, Mrs. Conway blasted the four congresswoman of color - now known as the "squad" - for voting against a House bill to fund migrant detention facilities, saying they represent a "very dark element in the country".

Apollo 11 launched 50 years ago on July 16, 1969
The team will commemorate the Apollo 11 mission by wearing special hats during the game that feature the Apollo 11 mission emblem. The morning of the launch, the Apollo 11 trio ate breakfast with a much smaller crew and reviewed maps with NASA's Deke Slayton.

He was referring to Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley.

The White House asserted in a statement Monday that Conway's position as a White House official grants her immunity from testifying before Congress.

Feinberg sought clarification, asking, "Are you saying the president was telling the Palestinian American to go back to the Occupied Territories?" "I work with this president and I know him".

"I totally disagree", she exclaimed.

CONWAY: The President's already commented on that and he's said a lot about this since that one tweet.

"So interesting to see "progressive" Democrat congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe ... telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run", Trump wrote. To people who swore an oath of office, sick and exhausted of our military being denigrated sick and exhausted of the Customs and Border Patrol people, the protection people I was with who are overwhelmingly Hispanic by the way in McAllen, Texas.

Conway immediately responded, "What's your ethnicity?".

"He's exhausted", she said.
