CON­WAY SIDESTEPS QUERIES ON PROOF

Austin American-Statesman - - MORE OF TODAY’S TOP NEWS -

White House coun­selor Kellyanne Con­way sidestepped ques­tions about the lack of proof Monday, say­ing she was “not in the job of hav­ing ev­i­dence.” “That’s what in­ves­ti­ga­tions are for,” Con­way told CNN’s “New Day.” “The pres­i­dent is pleased that the House and Se­nate in­tel­li­gence com­mit­tees have agreed that this should be part of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion that al­ready ex­ists about Rus­sia and the cam­paign, an in­ves­ti­ga­tion that ap­par­ently has gone nowhere so far.” In a week­end in­ter­view with the Ber­gen Record, a news­pa­per in her home state of New Jer­sey, Con­way ap­peared to point to­ward the re­cent Wik­iLeaks re­lease of nearly 8,000 doc­u­ments that pur­port­edly re­veal se­crets about the CIA’s tools for break­ing into tar­geted com­put­ers, cell­phones and even smart TVs. “What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, un­for­tu­nately,” in­clud­ing “mi­crowaves that turn into cam­eras, et cetera,” Con­way said. “So we know that that is just a fact of mod­ern life.”
