Kayleigh McEnany Pushes Back After Mueller Hits Trump for Commuting Stone

Share

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is pushing back against Robert Mueller’s response to President Donald Trump’s decision to commute Roger Stone’s prison sentence.

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Monday, McEnany was asked about her reaction to Mueller’s op-ed published in The Washington Post after Trump commuted Stone’s sentence.

McEnany immediately noted, “The fact that Robert Mueller had to even write an op-ed is telling. The fact that he had to defend his taxpayer-wasted investigation on taxpayer dollars, millions and millions wasted on a Russia hoax theory that found no collusion.”

She added, “What did Robert Mueller have to do to justify his investigation, a waste of taxpayer dollars, a waste of America’s time? He had to come up with process crimes which is exactly what was done in the case of Roger Stone.”

Shortly after discussing Mueller’s op-ed, McEnany moved on to criticize other leaders who were at the center of previous controversies.

McEnany singled out former Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Andrew McCabe, former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

According to McEnany, they managed to “get away scot-free.”

See McEnany’s remarks below:

McEnany admitted that Democratic House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) was correct when he noted that the United States justice system is a “two-tiered” entity while he condemned Trump’s decision to commute Stone’s sentence.

However, she disagrees with how he views the alleged two-tiered system.

“Adam Schiff was actually right,” she said. “We do have a two-tiered justice system, he was just wrong on the facts. The two-tiered justice system completely discriminates against the Trump administration.”

McEnany’s remarks come just days after the president garnered backlash from top Democrats for his decision to commute Stone’s sentence after he was convicted on charges of lying to Congress, obstructing justice, and witness tampering.
