White House counselor Kellyanne Conway early Monday blasted the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, saying that it is starting to waste "tens of millions of taxpayers' money.”

Conway told "Fox & Friends" that she believes the investigation, which is now reportedly examining whether President Trump obstructed justice, “is part of the resistance and obstruction.”

“We’re starting to waste tens of millions of taxpayers' money on this endeavor,” Conway said. “If there’s something there, let’s hear about it.”

Conway said that people who don't always agree with Trump are beginning to question the investigation, which has gone on for “months and months and months.”

“So what are we talking about here really when the president is trying to move on with the policies and solutions of the day?” she said.



Conway said that Trump and former FBI Director James Comey have both said that Trump isn't personally under investigation, despite a tweet from Trump Friday that seemed to confirm that he was under investigation.

“I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director,” Trump tweeted Friday.

Jay Sekulow, one of Trump's attorneys, also denied that Trump was under investigation during an interview on Sunday.
