A weekend report concerning the FBI's investigation into whether President Donald Trump was working with Russia instead confirms that the "deep state" had been working against him, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday.
“It sort of confirms what the president has said all along about some of the rogue actors at the very tippy-top of the FBI who are no longer there because they were fired and worse,” Conway told Fox News' “Fox and Friends."
“Some of them were deemed to be leaking and lying, sexting each other, obviously with tremendous bias against this president."
She added that she thinks the article, published in The New York Times, "confirms what he’s said all along about some of those rogue actors, not the 35,000 rank-and-file men and women of the FBI who go to work and do a fabulous job every day."
Over the weekend, both The New York Times and The Washington Post published reports concerning the president and Russia.
The Times reported that in 2017, the FBI opened a probe into whether Trump was working for Russia after he fired FBI Director James Comey. The Post followed with an article claiming Trump worked to conceal details of his private meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump has taken offense to the articles, and Conway said they did not show any collusion.
"We've yet to see proof of any collusion," she said. "I ran the campaign, the successful part of it at the end. I never talked to anybody in Moscow."
