Conway asked what evidence Stelter "or anyone at CNN" had that Russia's election interference influenced the 2016 presidential election results.

“You’re trying to conflate it to make America think that somehow Donald Trump didn’t win this election fairly and squarely and you know he did,” she said.

She then insisted that Stelter cite evidence that Russia's election interference influenced the election. The CNN reporter brought up the hacking of emails from a Democratic National Committee server that were then shared by WikiLeaks when Conway interrupted him.

“Did you just say something that a lot of people are your side of the aisle are not willing to admit?” she asked.

Stelter said that he wasn’t “on a side of an aisle,” adding that it was “an offensive remark.”

How did your wife vote?” Conway asked.

“I did not vote for president,” Stelter replied. “I left that spot blank on the ballot that day. But it’s not appropriate for you to go around asking people who they voted for.”

“You probably didn’t think she needed your help,” Conway said.
