Conway said his opinion was limited to a few “personal engagements” with the president.
“I wonder why Jim Comey, as the sitting FBI director, did not go to Trump Tower to meet with the president-elect for two whole months after an election,” Conway said to FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Monday on “Mornings with Maria.”
“If you’re really worried about counter-terrorism and alleged Russian interference and you don’t know the president-elect — get up to Trump Tower like everybody else did and sit down and brief the man sooner,” she said.
In Conway’s opinion, Comey was trying to sell books — not save the country.
“Then you wait an entire year to play Paul Revere?” she asked. “Paul Revere jumped right on his horse. He didn’t wait a year.”
Trump fired back on Twitter Monday morning calling him the “WORST FBI Director in history.”
