Congressional Democrats are "not committed to the impeachment inquiry" and will not have the votes to pass an impeachment resolution, President Donald Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway insisted Thursday.
"Impeachment is simple math," Conway told Fox News' "Fox and Friends."
"You either have the votes or you don't. Guess, what? A dirty little secret. They don't have the votes."
She added that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "says we don't" need to take a vote, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is "completely confused about what an impeachment resolution is."
There are 17 swing states in play for next year, she added, and voters, particularly independents, are "allergic to a protracted impeachment," said Conway. "Impeaching the president is an extraordinary event that is rarely done because we have democratic elections. President Trump was democratically elected. Don't allow people to overturn the last election results or interfere in the next one."
Democrats, meanwhile, came to Washington with promises such as reducing drug prices and working on infrastructure, but instead are pushing to impeach Trump.
"Where is the USMCA?" she said. "These great trade deals? They're having trouble."
Conway also discussed the testimony provided by Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman earlier this week, saying the White House "respectfully disagreed" with him.
"For the record, I would never besmirch a lieutenant colonel," she said, "We don't question his patriotism. We disagree with his characterization ... It is unprecedented for a White House, we think, to release the transcript of a call like this."
Conway, meanwhile, lauded the Washington Nationals for their World Series win, while pointing out that since Trump took office, the Capitals, Mystics, and Nationals have all won championships.
"Are you saying the president deserves the credit for the Nationals winning last night?" show co-host Steve Doocy asked her.
"The credit goes to the athletes," she responded.
