"Those accusers have had their day on your network and elsewhere for a long time. They were tried out again late last year," Conway told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week."
Conway was responding to a tweet from Gillibrand, who said Congress could hold hearings about sexual misconduct allegations against him if Trump wanted due process for those accused of abuse.
The lives of survivors of sexual assault and domestic abuse are being shattered every day. If he wants due process for the over dozen sexual assault allegations against him, let’s have Congressional hearings tomorrow. I would support that and my colleagues should too.— Kirsten Gillibrand (@SenGillibrand) February 10, 2018
"I don't need a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand or from anybody else who protected and defended and harbored a sitting president who had such relations in the Oval Office, and was impeached for lying," Conway said.
White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down from his post on Wednesday after abuse allegations from his two ex-wives surfaced. Chief of staff John KellyJohn Francis KellyMORE reportedly knew for months that Porter had not obtained a full security clearance due to the allegations.
The president tweeted Saturday that "lives are being shattered ... by a mere allegation."
Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation. Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2018
