Just moments before Trump began tweeting attacks on Christine Blasey Ford's claim that she was sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway told reporters said “there’s no reason” to attack Ford.
After appearing on New Day this morning, Kellyanne Conway spoke with reporters on the North Lawn of the White House and answered questions on Kavanaugh and Ford.
