Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, who has identified herself as a "recovering lawyer," told reporters Monday that if House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff agrees to testify in the House impeachment inquiry she will appear on behalf of the White House. Top Judiciary Committee Republican Doug Collins said Sunday that Schiff would be his "first and foremost" witness in impeachment hearings.
"He is a fact witness," she said about the Chairman.
KELLYANNE CONWAY: Our White House counsel has made very clear dating back to October 8 that this is an unconstitutional and illegitimate process, and we stand by that. We haven't seen anything to change that.
We've seen independents falling away from the democratic point of view on impeaching the president. We've seen these 31 Democrats from Trump-Pence districts getting earfuls when they go home from a lot of people asking, "Why aren't you working for us?"
And 21 of them are freshman, it is very tough to get re-elected after your freshman year, particularly when you're in a district like that and you have the president at the top of the ticket.
So, they have to be more definitive about what they are doing. And they are not definitive. First, it is in the Judiciary Committee, then it is in the Intelligence Committee, now it is back to Judiciary.
Is Adam Schiff going to testify? Because he is a fact witness. That would be great. I'll tell you what, if Adam Schiff testifies, I'll show up on behalf of the White House.
