Book blames Kellyanne Conway for White House leaks

Book blames Kellyanne Conway for White House leaks

The book, which will be released on Tuesday, goes into detail about how Kushner and Ivanka Trump calling them "problems" in the administration.

Ronald Kessler, author of "The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game", told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday that Conway had no filter when it came to divulging information to the media. Trump has raged against the leaks, but has never done anything to Conway about them. "The media here is the opposition party".

Bannon called the media the "opposition party" just days after Donald Trump took office a year ago in an interview with the New York Times. Author Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury, called the president himself the White House's "biggest leaker" in an interview with MSNBC in January.

And Trump has tweeted and spoken about "fake news" more times than all but the most bored reporters would care to count. Conway, a senior White House counselor, asked kids gathered for storytime at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, pointing at the executive mansion.

But Conway insisted Monday that she has 'a great working relationship and a great relationship with Jared and Ivanka. "I didn't include them in the book because they were so unfair".

Conway pushed back on the claims, telling Huntsman she is on good terms with the couple and recently had dinner at their house. "She would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say 'Blech, I need to take a shower, ' because she disliked her candidate so much", co-host Mika Brzezinski said in May of previous year. "And one day, Abby, I will have my say". That will be very, very fascinating'.

Despite all that, Kessler believes that Trump will be remembered as a great president.

"In the end, Jared and Ivanka would push the most disastrous and foolish decisions of Trump's presidency", the author wrote in his book.

'Most of all, they had no understanding of the political consequences of their actions'.

'Jared said, "Well, Democrats will love that".

Kessler's accusations aren't the first to paint Conway in an unfavorable light.

There is a "lot of jealousy and backbiting", she added, about people like herself who have daily access to the president, but she has survived many other staffers and remains there.

'He was sort of pussy-footing around about running and she said, "You have to declare your candidacy",' Kessler said.
