Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway says that she never had to look far when she needed "negative information" on former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Conway, who hails from Camden County and led President Donald Trump's campaign to victory in the fall, made the comment during a Friday appearance on "Fox & Friends" where hosts brought up reports of President Donald Trump Jr.'s alleged meeting with a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties for compromising information on Clinton.
While campaigns are often offered opposition research, Conway says, the information ends up being a "bust" in many cases. Clinton was a "treasure trove" of her own opposition information, Conway said on the show.
“You know, when I needed negative information about Hillary Clinton, I didn't have to go very far," she said during the interview. "I looked at Hillary Clinton. She was a treasure trove. She was like a treasure box of negative Hillary information with arms and legs.”
Conway also maintained that Clinton is "one of the only people" who firmly believes in collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russian government.
“I mean, we were promised systemic, hard evidence of systemic, sustained, furtive collusion that not only interfered with our election process but indeed dictated the electoral outcome,” Conway said. “And one of the only people who says that seriously these days is still Hillary Clinton and nobody believes it. We know why she lost. It's obvious.”
