During an appearance on Fox News, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was taken aback after host Sandra Smith noted that some Republican senators were on board to let witnesses testify at Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.
Conway began by slamming Senate Democrats for wanting to call witnesses to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial.
“Look at what happened in the House, the Republicans, the president was denied calling his own witnesses,” Conway falsely claimed, as House Democrats did allow some witnesses who were requested by House Republicans to testify. “That is a complete disgrace!”
Conway then went on to question whether it was really true that all 47 Democrats in the Senate were in lockstep about wanting to hear from witnesses.
“How do we know that’s true?” she asked. “I’ve read that reported.”
That’s when Smith interjected and let Conway know the facts.
“Even Republican colleagues of the president, Ted Cruz and others, [are] suggesting that that’s the case,” she pointed out.
“Well, they could be going in lockstep, but look at what happened, the only thing bipartisan so far about this impeachment sham has been the bipartisan opposition to it in the House!” Conway snapped back.
Take a look at the interview in the video clip below:
