“What Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are doing — taking the President’s abundant falsehoods and trying to weave them into some alternate ‘truth’ — is corrosive to our democracy and among the most destructive features of this Administration,” Schiff, a frequent critic of the president, said in a tweet on Sunday.

Sanders then took a shot at Schiff by saying that the White House tries “never to be concerned with anything dealing with Adam Schiff.”

Schiff then responded by asking why, if that is true, “won’t the President agree to an interview with Bob Mueller?”

Conway, meanwhile, said Sunday that she doesn’t believe the Trump White House has a credibility problem.

When pressed on CNN’s “State of the Union” about Trump's falsehoods, Conway insisted “the president doesn’t lie.”
