In the clip, Conway denied the existence of similar conversations while calling the accusations "inaccurate" and "false".

Kellyanne Conway: So as I understand it, George, some of the disclosure forms have been amended since that time, and to reflect other meetings including this one.

The two disagreed on CNN's focus and though Cuomo kept asking Conway about Trump's ties to Russia and new reports about Donald Trump Jr., meeting with a Russian lawyer during his father's presidential campaign. The meeting was also attended by President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and former campaign manager Paul Manafort. He later submitted supplemental information reflecting numerous contacts with foreign officials. Meet With A Russian Lawyer? "There was no follow up whatsoever". But Conway was undeterred, pivoting gleefully from the substance of the story and instead casting coverage of Donald Trump Jr.as some kind of vast CNN-led conspiracy to undermine the White House.

Mr Trump Jr met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who is connected with the Kremlin, in June of a year ago just a few weeks ahead of his father clinching the Republican nomination for President. He maintains he did not end up receiving any damaging info related to Clinton. We had a meeting in June 2016. While Trump added that "it quickly became clear that [the lawyer] had no meaningful information", MSNBC justice and security analyst Matthew Miller said Trump's statement in and of itself could be the potential confession of a crime.

"Don Jr. has very explicitly stated he didn't even know the name of the person with whom he was meeting", Conway told Cuomo.

Conway responded, "OK, I know you're trying to go viral here". "She then changed subjects and began discussing the adoption of Russian children and mentioned the Magnitsky Act". Trump Jr. met with Veselnitskaya because she promised information that could be damaging to Trump's opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Mr Trump Jr said "the woman stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russian Federation were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Ms Clinton".

Kellyanne Conway went on the morning-show circuit Monday to defend Trump Jr.'s meeting.

When confronted about looking for dirt on Clinton, Trump Jr. changed his statement. But the fact is that report is a bombshell people should know about...'

Toward the end of the interview, which devolved mostly into cross-talk, Conway took to castigating Cuomo for talking about the ongoing Russian Federation scandal instead of a laundry list of presidential initiatives that she thinks CNN should be talking about, because she apparently believes that (1) CNN is state-run media and/or (2) covering more than one story at the same time is impossible.
