Kellyanne Conway: Voters Will Remember How Democrats Wasted Time On Impeachment


Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said the American people will not forget about the Democratic party's push for impeachment of President Donald Trump when it comes time to vote in 2020. In an interview with 'FOX & Friends' Tuesday morning, Conway said Democrats are not representing the will of the people and would sound more legitimate if they just admitted they are following the leadership of the party.

"Let's talk a little bit about these 30 some odd moderate Democrats who are in districts that Donald Trump won in 2016. They would probably like to vote against impeachment, but Nancy Pelosi is going to make them walk the plank. What's their life going to be like over the next year? Do you think people will forget about it come next 2020?" 'FOX & Friends' co-host Steve Doocy asked.

"People will not forget about it," Conway said Tuesday morning. "People will remember how those Democrats spent their time and the taxpayers' money, which was a big waste. And if you waste my time, you risk my trust is what these voters will say to them. And can we stop calling them moderate Democrats? I think they've proven that they're not. They are not representing the will of their people."

"If you're called a representative, if that's your day job, you ought to represent the will of your people. And these folks saying, 'Oh, it's a vote of conscience. I've been struggling. I had to read all the documents all weekend.' They would sound more legitimate and more credible if they just said, 'I need to follow the leadership of my party, which has gone so far to the left, we can't even see the middle from where we are anymore. And frankly, which probably dangles committee assignments and campaign money in front of me for me to make this vote,'" she said.
