Kellyanne Conway did the equivalent of spiking a football before even getting into the endzone on Thursday when she tripped all over herself trying to celebrate the indictment of a former Obama official in connection with the Mueller investigation.
For lying about his own connections with Ukrainian officials during the Russia investigation, former White House counsel Gregory Craig, who served under former President Barack Obama, has been indicted by federal prosecutors.
And of course, Conway decided to brag about it on Twitter.
WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL INDICTED in connection with MUELLER investigation! https://t.co/DuxOLSs5NF

The problem is that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who served briefly in the White House under President Donald Trump, was also indicted and took a plea deal with Mueller for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians. In addition, several members of the Trump 2016 campaign have also been indicted, including Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Roger Stone and George Papadopoulos. Even Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is going to jail.
It should also be pointed out that Craig left the White House in 2010 and committed his alleged crimes in 2012. In short, not really something to brag about.
So, Conway is clearly pretending none of those indictments happened while fixating on Craig because he worked in the Obama White House. If you’re keeping score at home, Trump is clearly in the lead when it comes to indictments.
And Twitter users certainly reminded her of the score.
Maybe he can share a cell with Michael Flynn, another White House official indicted in the Mueller investigation

This guy worked for Obama until 2010 his acts in question happened in 2012 at which time he was involved with Paul Manafort who still links back to Trump. But here she is with only a picture of Obama, not even the indicted person himself, claiming finally Dems get caught. Smh

Did u scream “BREAKING NEWS! FINALLY” when his cohort Paul Manafort was arrested?
Criminal corruption isn’t a Dem or Repub thing. It’s a moral thing. Then again, you’re too brainwashed to see the hypocrisy of this AND Trump has a base that just doesn’t give a fuck.

The only White House official indicted for crimes committed while working in the White House was Michael Flynn.

Mueller’s team indicted and received guilty pleas from 30+ people including six former Trump advisers, 5/6 have plead guilty.
But please continue Dorian Gray, the perfect example of anti-empowerment.

Once again, Conway humiliates herself desperately trying to protect Trump.
