President Donald Trump's decision to not participate in the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment evidence hearing was not a "tough" one, as the White House considers the process an "illegitimate engagement," presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday. 

"I think (Chairman) Jerry Nadler makes that very clear when he lies and says that if this were before a jury they would convict (Trump) in three minutes," Conway told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "Convict on what? He didn't even specify the charges and he knew what they were if they were clear and convincing and digestible to the public, we would already know what was in the articles of impeachment. Why is he playing a game of secret squirrel?"

Americans, she added, are not "buying" impeachment this holiday season. 

Conway also called out Nadler in comparison to Inspector Clouseau, the bumbling "Pink Panther" character. 

“If he knew what the charges were, if they were clear and convincing and digestible to the public, we would already know what was in the articles of impeachment," said Conway. "Why is he playing a game of Inspector Clouseau secret squirrel? I'm going to make you wait to see what's in the article of impeachment. Because they don't know.”

Conway also pointed to an Axios Poll released Monday that shows impeachment is helping, not hurting Trump in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan.

"Probably the Democrats are making Donald Trump a victim to lots of Americans who just want them to join him and get on with the business of the country," said Conway, complaining that Democrats are “on your dime, wasting your time on impeachment, not doing the business of this country.”
