Conway responded to Cuomo’s tweet, blaming him and other journalists for mentioning Clinton because they “can’t let go” of the election.
“When we are forced to think/talk about [Clinton] it's because you and your colleagues can't let go of an election she/you lost. Sad!” Conway tweeted. “Proven further by after a 30-minute interview about policy and accomplishments, HRC is all you and others can say.”

Cuomo fired back again, reiterating that Conway brought up Clinton in their Wednesday interview and adding that she should call him if she has “something to say” about “what matters,” like “Russian hacking.”
“[Easy] enough to see who brought up the election and hrc in this [interview] and who is tweeting about it this morning,” he tweeted. “You are always welcome to discuss what matters. Russian hacking matters to our democracy. Period. And feel free to call me if you have something to say.”
