White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Friday she would not have accepted a meeting with someone who offered the former campaign manager for President Trump negative information on his opponent Hillary Clinton.
"People call you up all the time and say 'I have dirt on her,' and would you take a meeting with them?" Fox News personality Steve Doocy asked Conway on Friday morning.
Conway responded with one word: "No."
"The president said yesterday that that kind of occurrence happened all the time," Doocy said.
"No, he is absolutely right in terms of people are always whispering 'I have opposition' here or 'I have got information' there. And sometimes people want to aggrandize their own positions or wish to be helpful," Conway said.
"When I needed negative information about Hillary Clinton, I didn't have to go very far. 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 added.
Conway held out against answering whether every person involved with the campaign and administration should release all communications to investigators, even "post-it notes," as Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., had recommended.
Instead, she said the administration has been "willing to share whatever they know, whatever they have" and has been "forthcoming from the very beginning."
When pressed on the level of cooperation from the White House, Conway said those involved in the issue are willing to help investigators.
"In terms of those who work here, who have been asked to cooperate, they have made very clear through their attorneys that they are willing to cooperate. And I know that some people's disclosure forms are recently amended. As I understand, that's how this has all been revealed," Conway said. "And I will tell you that this is an administration that talks about transparency, talks about sunlight and talks about, you know, full information."
