Kellyanne Conway: Does Agent Who Called Trump Supporters "Retarded" Still Work At FBI?


From Trump advisor and spokesperson Kellyanne Conway on NBC's 'Meet the Press':

KELLYANNE CONWAY: He means the rank and file. It’s so disturbing to anyone, Chuck, when you read this IG report and you see some of the comments that are being made in text messages. On September 9th, the same day that Hillary Clinton would go on to refer to President Trump’s supporters as irredeemable and deplorable. The same day, an FBI agent according to the IG report referred to Trump’s supporters in Iowa, excuse me, Ohio as “retarded”. Are we comfortable with that? Who is that person? Does that person still work at the FBI? Are they still getting government resources? Do they have his top secret security clearance?

CHUCK TODD: Are you comfortable with the fact that the New York FBI office was leaking stuff to Devin Nunes in September of 2016 as well? I mean, against Hillary Clinton --

KELLYANNE CONWAY: I'm very uncomfortable.

CHUCK TODD: I mean, what is going on if -- I understand, you guys want to make an issue of that. That New York FBI office looks like it was leaking like a sieve.

KELLYANNE CONWAY: Well, I'm very uncomfortable that in, apparently, in exchange for some leaks, that FBI officials were taking gifts from journalists. And you should be very concerned, too. I'm sure you are. That people are being offered meals, and tickets to games and things of real value. What were they getting in exchange? A new friend? Or someone who would be a source for them? It's very disconcerting. There are many disconcerting things in this report. And I know people are running around cherry picking it according to their own political point of view. What I would, what I would recommend, Chuck, is that everybody take the time to really digest 568 pages.
