“We didn’t need WikiLeaks to convince the American people that they didn’t like her, didn’t trust her, didn’t find her to be honest,” Conway told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.

Conway maintained that Russia’s attempt to meddle in the United States election failed.

“The alleged attacks, alleged aspirations to interfere with our democracy failed,” she said.

WikiLeaks published stolen emails from Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, and the Democratic National Committee. Its founder, Julian Assange, has said Russia was not the source of those emails.

The U.S. intelligence community published a report Friday that concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign to help Trump win.

The report did not assess the impact of Russia’s actions.
