White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday slammed the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying that it is wasting “tens of millions of taxpayers’ money.”
Conway told Fox News that she thinks the investigation, which is now covering whether President Obama obstructed justice, “is part of the resistance and obstruction.”
“We’re starting to waste tens of millions of taxpayers’ money on this endeavor,” Conway said. “If there’s something there, let’s hear about it.”
Conway added that people who don’t traditionally support Trump are starting to question the legitimacy of the investigation, which has gone on for “months and months and months.”
“So what are we talking about here really when the president is trying to move on with the policies and solutions of the day,” she said.
