Conway fires back at Sen. Gillibrand: Trump's accusers 'have had their day'

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday fired back at Senator Kirsten Gillibrand over sexual misconduct allegations against President Trump.

“Those accusers have had their day on your network and elsewhere for a long time. They were trotted out again late last year. And I don’t need a lecture from Kirsten Gillibrand or anybody else who protected and defended and harbored a sitting president who had sexual relations in the Oval Office and was impeached for lying,” Conway told George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’ ‘This Week.’

Conway was reacting to a tweet that the Democrat had posted in the wake of abuse allegations against former White House staffer Rob Porter and the seemingly one-sided response to the accusations by Trump.

“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,” Gillibrand wrote on Twitter Saturday.

Hours prior, Trump had tweeted, “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?”

Gillibrand’s Saturday message was similar to the one she shared in mid-December as a number of women who accused Trump of wrongdoing prior to the election shared their stories again in hopes that the recent surge in accountability would push Congress to act. 

The White House, however, has maintained that the allegations against Trump have essentially been resolved.

“We feel strongly the people of this country addressed it when they elected Donald Trump as president,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in early December.
