Conway: Trump 'Very Focused on Other Things' Than Mueller Probe

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump is "very focused on other things" than the indictments handed out by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to White House counsel Kellyanne Conway.

"As the president has said, everyone is fully cooperating with these investigations," Conway said on Fox News' "Fox & Friends," in an interview given before it was announced that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was being indicted.

"But the president also has made clear as recently as this weekend that he considers this a hoax and that people should be looking into campaign coordination, if not collusion, between the Clinton campaign, the DNC, this Russian dossier."

The former Trump campaign manager then attacked former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over the idea that the president's victory was the result of Russian influence.

"We had a different candidate and a better message," Conway said.

She added later, "We would be glad to stop talking about Hillary Clinton and the campaign, we dispensed with her a year ago. But she just won't go away. People are covering her like it's not fiction and they keep talking about what happened a year ago. Whatever happens today with the Mueller investigation, we don't even know that it has anything to do with the campaign."

Manafort surrendered to the FBI on Monday. He has been indicted on 12 counts, including conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and as an unregistered agent of a foreign principal.
