Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway refused to discuss a lawsuit against the candidate alleging he raped a 13 year-old girl during an appearance on CNBC on Monday.
During a conversation about the FBI looking into emails found on a laptop Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin shared with her now estranged husband Anthony Weiner, Conway called her campaign “sneaky” for asking for the release of more information.
She then criticized Clinton for “encouraging the boos for (FBI director) Jim Comey,” calling it a “dangerous precedent.”
CNBC host Andrew Ross Sorkin noted Trump has said Clinton belongs in jail and suggested that if he wins he will put her there. He doesn’t mention that Trump has also made comments that “Second Amendment people” could act against Clinton and said her Secret Service detail should disarm and “let’s see what happens to her.”
“And where are we now?” Conway said. “She is going to be in her second FBI investigation. One FBI investigation, let alone two, do we think this is normal? I think people have been asking the right questions about the wrong candidate. Who’s really unqualified? Who’s unfit to be president? Who has shown what they would do with their national security information? Who has shown it’s always about her and her petty peevish political self?”
“My understanding is that no matter who wins, we’re going to be dealing with the email issue after this if she’s the president,” Sorkin replied. “If Donald Trump is the president, he’s got the child rape case that’s going to happen that was just given a date.”
“Oh, come on. That you would analogize the two. Give me a break…Next you are going to ask me where his taxes are,” Conway said.
“That’s a whole separate issue, but we’re going to have legal cases for each candidate,” Sorkin answered.
“That’s such a ridiculous conflation,” Conway responded. “To just throw the rape word in there when we’ve got 650,000 emails based on an active investigation of Huma Abedin’s pedophilia husband, because he’s sexting pictures of himself to some 15 year-old girl in North Carolina, I think that’s just ridiculous.”
