Conway's remarks followed Comey's interview with ABC's Stephanopoulos, in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump and his administration, and encouraged voters to vote Trump out of office.

Conway suggested that Comey's allegations were disingenuous because he had waited almost a year to take them public, prompting Stephanopoulos to remind her that Comey had in fact told the Senate Judiciary Committee much of the same last year.

Former FBI director James Comey has said it is possible that Russian Federation may have compromising information on United States president Donald Trump. "He thought the wrong person would win, his people in his household wanted the other person to win".

Conway made a similar comment on ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday morning about her not believing Comey could swing the election. It's really hard to follow, which is nothing new for those who track Conway.

Many online jumped on Conway's comments Monday morning, saying she admitted that "Trump wouldn't have won without the Comey". "This misleading headline should include an eye roll and question mark", Conway wrote, while attaching an ABC News article with a headline claiming he she attacked Comey for swinging the election. "I don't think so, '" she said.

'I don't think he's medically unfit to be president'.

Trump was referring to a July 2016 recommendation by Comey that Clinton not be charged in relation to her practice of using a private email server while secretary of state.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, then a top Trump campaign surrogate, also praised Comey's move, telling Fox News in late October and early November 2016 that Comey "had an absolute duty" to "come forward with the new information" and "did the right thing".

Trump, meanwhile, tweeted a slew of insults at Comey, whom he fired in May. Trump recently called Comey's actions "one of the worst "botch jobs" of history".
