It will "cost" Democrats to keep pushing for information about President Donald Trump because he's already been thoroughly investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller's team, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Wednesday.
"He gave an interview to The Washington Post, where he made very clear that there is really no reason to comply with all these requests when we have the Mueller investigation," Conway told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "We have already spent $30 million plus of taxpayer dollars and subpoenas, million pieces of documentation to get to the bottom of it...I also believe that people are right in this country to look at the Mueller investigation as the definitive, conclusive, nonpartisan, taxpayer-funded investigation."
The report makes it clear that the executive branch and Trump himself "never intervened, impeded, or obstructed that investigation," she added. "In fact, he made available all these people from the White House and his campaign, all the documentation."
Trump is "possibly" willing to use executive privilege, said Conway, so Democrats need to decide if they're going to talk about "Trump, Trump, Trump" at all times, or if they will work on infrastructure, drug pricing, or healthcare.
"They have to be honest with the people of this country who they represent as to whether they're serious about having bipartisan action to try to solve the problems of this nation," said Conway.
She also dismissed comments from Hillary Clinton, who claimed Tuesday anyone else would have faced charges following Mueller's investigation."
"There was enormous pressure on the Mueller investigation and investigators to do what she failed to do, deny Donald Trump the presidency," said Conway. "This woman has always blamed everybody but the poor campaign she ran."
