Kellyanne Conway scoffs at claim that she's the biggest White House leaker

Kellyanne Conway spoke out on Monday against a new book's claim that she is the biggest White House leaker in the Trump administration.

The White House senior counselor appeared on Fox News on Monday where she was asked about Ronald Kessler's new book, "The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game."

"He knows, and he has said publicly and privately who the leakers and the liars are and have been, and is very happy that there is a lot less leaking in the White House now," Conway said to Abby Huntsman of Fox News.

When asked whether some leaks do still exist in the White House, Conway responded with an answer that suggested questions around information exchanged between WHite House staffers and the press were based in a desire for heightened traffic.

"Perhaps," Conway said. "But let me just make very clear something that you know, because you are there and have two eyes. If somebody puts 'Kellyanne interview' on a chyron [on-screen graphic] in a headline, you get clicks and kicks."

The new book covering the Trump administration is set to be released on Tuesday.
