Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said on Monday that disclosure forms about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting in 2016 with a Kremlin-connected lawyer, have been amended so everything is cool. It sounds like Conway is saying is that the White House can revise history.
According to Conway, the meeting with the Russian lawyer is no biggie because nothing came of it. Trump Jr. was promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton last year but apparently, he was duped so it’s all OK.
“Who misled you and why did Don Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort allow those public denials to stand for so many months?” host George Stephanopoulos asked.
“Some of the disclosure forms have been amended since that time, and to reflect other meetings, including this one,” Conway said. “No information was received that was meaningful or helpful, and no action was taken. There was no follow-up whatsoever.”
“There’s no evidence of collusion,” Conway said.
“That is not what Cecilia Vega said. Cecilia Vega was asked about that yesterday morning. That was before Don Jr. admitted that he sought the meeting to get damaging information on Hillary Clinton,” Stephanopoulos shot back. “He changed his story.”
“Are you saying that there’s evidence of collusion? Because everybody’s trying to convert wishful thinking into hard evidence and they haven’t been able to do that,” Conway said.
“Why did the administration allow these denials to stand for so many months?” Stephanopoulos pressed.
“The people involved in the meeting could answer those questions better for you,” Conway said. “Don Jr. came forth this weekend and gave more information about the meeting.”
“After denying it!” Stephanopoulos said.

Then Chris Cuomo interviewed her — and that went down as well as you would expect after Conway blasted the media instead of explaining Trump Jr’s awkward defense of trying to collude with Russia.

At one point, Cuomo told Conway, “If you want flattery there’s another channel that can give you that.”
The Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians, according to Reuters. So, we’re sure Team Trump is busy amending a lot of disclosure forms.
Is there any way a person can ‘amend’ last year’s taxes so for once that person can get a tax return? I’m asking for a ‘friend.’
