Conway Disagrees With Husband on Whitaker

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway says her husband’s opinion about President Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker are “not relevant.” Appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Kellyanne commented on a New York Times op-ed co-written by George Conway—her spouse and a high-profile Washington lawyer—where he wrote that Trump’s appointment of Whitaker as acting Attorney General is unconstitutional. That’s not relevant and she disagrees, Conway said.

—QUOTABLE: ”People disagree on the Constitution,” she said. “That’s why we have a US Circuit Court system and, indeed, a United States Supreme Court. They are there to interpret the law, and they disagree about the Constitution regularly.” -Kellyanne Conway
