"And also a disgrace that nothing he says—not even his denial of something as extraordinary as this—can be taken at face value," Conway responded.

Conway's frequent criticism of Trump has been noteworthy because his wife is a top aide to the president. 

His latest criticism comes after The New York Times reported Friday that the FBI in 2017 opened a counterintelligence investigation into whether Trump was working on behalf of Russia.

Trump on Monday denied that he has ever worked for Moscow.

“I never worked for Russia,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
