MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough accused White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway of being a “leaker extraordinaire” on Friday, shortly after President Trump tweeted about leakers in the FBI.
Scarborough was discussing how Trump staffers Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner and Reince Priebus might have different views, but don’t leak information about each other. That’s when he threw Conway under the bus.
“This could sound ugly but it’s just not. It’s just the truth. I am reporting. If you read a really ugly story about Reince Priebus or an ugly story about Sean [Spicer], the chances are good it came from Kellyanne,” Scarborough said. “I mean, Kellyanne has been the leaker extraordinaire.”
Scarborough went on to say that when he’s reading the paper, he often thinks Conway should have a byline on various stories.
