Kellyanne Conway: Epstein’s victims deserve justice

Kellyanne Conway: Epstein’s victims deserve justice


BILL.>>Bill: WHAT A STORY, THANK YOU. JOINING US NOW, KELLYANNE CONWAY, WELCOME BACK TO “FOX NEWS SUNDAY” .”>>Kellyanne: GOOD MORNING, BILL.>>Bill: I HAVE A NUMBER OF ISSUES TO GET THROUGH, FIRST ON EPSTEIN. CAN YOU ASSURE THE ACCUSERS THAT THEIR CLAIMS WILL STILL BE PURSUED?>>Kellyanne: WHAT I CAN ASSURE THEM IS THAT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL TOOK ACTION IMMEDIATELY WHEN HE LEARNED OF THE DEATH OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN AND THERE IS AN ACTIVE INVESTIGATION. I CAN’T REALLY COMMENT ON THAT ANY FURTHER AND I THINK THAT THOSE VICTIMS SHOULD HAVE JUSTICE AND THEY’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR JUSTICE FOR MANY, MANY YEARS AND I REALLY CAN’T COMMENT BEYOND THAT. I THINK THAT THIS IS THE ULTIMATE MACABRE FINAL EPISODE TO A MAN WHO CLEARLY WAS AN EVIL MONSTER DOING TERRIBLE THINGS TO YOUNG GIRLS.>>Bill: WHITE OF THE PRESIDENT THEN RETWEET THAT CLINTON’S SUGGESTION?>>Kellyanne: I THINK THE PRESIDENT JUST WANTS EVERYTHING TO BE INVESTIGATED AS A REPORTER JUST REVEALED JUST THE DAY BEFORE. THERE WAS SOME UNSEALED INFORMATION IMPLICATING SOME PEOPLE VERY HIGH UP AND I’M NOT GOING TO REPEAT THEIR NAMES, YOU ALREADY DID THAT. I’M NOT SEEING ANYTHING BEYOND THAT, AND I WON’T, BUT I WILL SAY THAT THERE’S ALWAYS THIS RUSH TO — WE NEED TRANSPARENCY, WE NEED ACCOUNTABILITY ONE INVOLVES FICTIONAL ACCUSATIONS LIKE COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA TO SWING AN ELECTION. THIS SEEMS TO BE VERY CONCRETE AND THAT JEFFREY EPSTEIN HAS DONE SOME VERY BAD THINGS OVER A NUMBER OF YEARS. SO LET’S CONTINUE TO INVESTIGATE THAT. I DON’T THINK THAT SOMEBODY — THEY ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THAT NECESSARILY PARISHES WITH THEM. WE KNOW THAT THE LAW CAN ALLOW FOR MANY DIFFERENT INVESTIGATIONS, MAYBE THERE ARE COCONSPIRATORS, MAYBE THERE ARE NOT. IT’S AN ACTIVE INVESTIGATION. I THINK EVERYBODY SHOULD BE AT LEAST RELIEVED WHEN AN ATTORNEY GENERAL TAKES THE ACTION AS ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR DID YESTERDAY.>>Bill: LET’S SEE WHERE THAT GOES.>>Kellyanne: LET’S SEE WHERE IT GOES. THIS ALL HAPPENED WITHIN A 24-28 HOURS.>>Bill: UNDERSTOOD AND WE SHOULD GO SLOW WITH THIS. BACK WITH THE RETWEET, QUICKLY, IT’S CLEAR WHAT HE WAS TRYING TO SAY, WASN’T IT?>>Kellyanne: I THINK THE PRESIDENT JUST WANTS EVERYTHING TO BE INVESTIGATED AND TRYING TO CONNECT THE PRESIDENT TO THIS MONSTER FROM YEARS AGO WHERE THEY ARE SEEN DANCING IN THE VIDEO VERSUS OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE ACTIVELY, I SUPPOSE, FLYING AROUND WITH THIS MONSTER ON HIS ISLAND, WHICH WAS KNOWN AS ISLAND. PERHAPS AS A PUBLIC DOMINANT PUBLIC INTEREST. THIS IS ALL SPECULATIVE AND IT’S NOT FOR ME TO GO FURTHER THAN THEY ARE WRITTEN. BUT YOU DO HEAR DIFFERENT PEOPLE ASKING QUESTIONS AND THEY WANT TO KNOW WHO ELSE WAS INVOLVED IN EPSTEIN’S CRIMES, OR EVEN JUST ACTIVITIES, AND I GUESS THAT WILL BE REVEALED IN TIME.>>Bill: LET’S MOVE TO GUNS IN AMERICA. WHAT A WEEK IT WAS. THE PRESIDENT SAID THIS ON FRIDAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE.>>I THINK I HAVE A GREATER INFLUENCE NOW OVER THE SENATE AND OVER THE HOUSE. I THINK WE CAN GET SOMETHING REALLY GOOD DONE. I THINK WE CAN HAVE SOME REALLY MEANINGFUL BACKGROUND CHECKS.>>Bill: THE FIRST ROUND ABOUT THAT, OR HE SAYS I HAVE GREATER INFLUENCE OVER THE HOUSE ON THE CEMENT, WHAT IS HIS PLAN TO INFLUENCE, TO USE THAT INFLUENCE NOW, KELLY IN?>>Kellyanne: AT THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN ACTIVELY TALKING TO REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ON THE MATTER OF BACKGROUND CHECKS AND JUST BEING ABLE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, MEASURABLE REFORMS THAT DON’T CONFISCATE LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS, FIREARMS WITHOUT DUE PROCESS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME KEEP THOSE FIREARMS OUT OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE A PROPENSITY TOWARDS VIOLENCE. WHEN THE PRESIDENT SIGNED INTO LAW IN MARCH OF 2018, THAT WAS A BIG DEAL BECAUSE SIX MIX WOULD HAVE PREVENTED THOSE STRONGER BACKGROUND CHECKS AND DATA INFORMATION SHARING BETWEEN FEDERAL AND STATE AUTHORITIES, WOULD HAVE PREVENTED SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, ANY NUMBER OF THESE MASS SHOOTINGS WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE HAVE FELONY CHARGES, THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PROCURE A FIREARM AND SO THIS PRESIDENT SIGNED INTO LAW SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT DONE BY THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION. I KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE CONGRESSMAN RYAN ON LATER, ASK THEM WHY NO LEGISLATION OF ANY IMPORT WAS PRESENTED BY SPEAKER PELOSI THE DEMOCRATS WON PRESIDENT OBAMA — WHEN I HAD A VETO-PROOF MAJORITY. IN THE SENATE.>>Bill: FACTOR THE QUESTION ABOUT THE PRESIDENT, HE ALSO SAID ON FRIDAY THAT MITCH McCONNELL IS “TOTALLY ON BOARD.” NOW, IN A RADIO INTERVIEW ON BOARD, MITCH McCONNELL SAID THIS IN HIS HOMETOWN.>>THE PRESIDENT CALLED ME THIS MORNING ABOUT THIS, HE’S ANXIOUS TO GET AN OUTCOME, AND SO AM I. IT WILL BE FRONT AND CENTER AS WE SEE WHAT WE CAN COME TOGETHER ON AND PASSED.>>Bill: WHAT HE TALKED ABOUT WERE BACKGROUND CHECKS AND RED FLAGS. ON FRIDAY QUOTED WAS REPORTED SAYING THIS. “HE SAID I’VE GOT A LOT OF CONCERNS ABOUT THE DUE PROCESS COMPONENT OF RED FLAG LAWS. I DON’T WANT TO PUNISH LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS. THAT’S THE NUMBER THREE REPUBLICAN IN THE SENATE. I WAS THE PARTY ON BOARD?>>Kellyanne: THAT’S ALL RECONCILABLE. IT’S EXACTLY WHAT I JUST SAID. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE FIREARMS DON’T AND I THINK THE FACT PATTERN IN DAYTON, THAT MAN’S SHOOTER WHO IS NOW DEAD, IS REALLY VERY COMPELLING TO MANY AMERICANS. IN THAT THEY SAY HOW IN TO VOTE FOR SOMEBODY WHO HAS A RAPE LIST FOR GIRLS COMMIT A KILL LIST FOR VOICE, AND HIGH SCHOOL WHERE SOME OF HIS SCHOOLMATES WERE AFRAID TO COME TO SCHOOL, THAT THEN WHEN HE BECOMES AN ADULT, THAT INFORMATION DOES NOT FOLLOW INTO HIS RECORD SO THAT HE LEGALLY PROCURES A FIREARM. SO MOST PEOPLE LOOK AT THAT RIGHT, LEFT, AND CENTER AND A POLITICAL, AT THAT AND SAY “HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN? “THE FBI IS VERY FOCUSED ON DOMESTIC TERRORISM. THERE ARE VERY FOCUSED ON MASS SHOOTING, VERY FOCUSED ON INFORMATION, ANALYTICS, TECHNOLOGY TO HELP THEM, BUT THAT HAS TO GO ACROSS FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT SO THEY CAN SHARE MORE INFORMATION. WE CAN PROTECT PEOPLE’S CIVIL LIBERTIES, PRIVACY, CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND PUBLIC SAFETY ALL AT THE RIGHT TIME, BUT I PREDICT THAT THIS PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT TRUMP, IS THE PRESIDENT WHO WILL GET THIS DONE. HE HAS MORE MEANINGFUL MEASURABLE CONTRACTS.>>Bill: SUGGESTED THINGS IN THE PAST ON BACKGROUND CHECKS IN THE PAST AND REVERSED HIMSELF.>>Kellyanne: NO, LOOK, WE’VE GOT REPUBLICAN SENATORS PUBLICLY SAYING THEY ARE FOR SOME BACKGROUND CHECKS NOW. IF ROB PORTMAN OF OHIO, SUSAN COLLINS OF MAINE, ALEXANDER OF TENNESSEE, MIKE BROWN OF INDIANA. YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT MEMBERS OF THE REPUBLICAN SENATE WHO HAVE COME FORWARD AND SAY LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. YOU KNOW THAT CHAIRMAN GRAHAM, LINDSEY GRAHAM, AND MOVEMENT ALL OF CONNECTICUT HAD THESE RED FLAG LAWS. IF WE HAD TO TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT THE FINAL PRODUCT IS. WE’RE LOOKING AT AT THAT. THE SIX MIX VIOLATION IS BEING PUT FORWARD I BELIEVE BY THE DEMOCRATIC SENATOR OF DELAWARE. HE’S ENGROSSED JOE BIDEN. IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THERE ACTUALLY WOULD HAVE STOPPED — IT SHOULD HAVE STOPPED SOME OF THESE MASS SHOOTERS IN THE PAST. BUT THIS PRESIDENT DID WHAT PRESIDENTS DO. HE WENT AND HE VISITED THE VICTIMS. HE WENT AND THANKED LAW ENFORCEMENT AND HEALTH PROFESSIONALS. HE TALKED TO MANY OF THE SURVIVORS, MANY OF THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES, AND THE FIRST LADY EXPRESSED THEIR CONDOLENCES. HE CAME OUT MONDAY MORNING AND IN NO UNCERTAIN UNEQUIVOCAL TERMS DENOUNCED HATE, BIGOTRY, RACISM AND YES, WHITE SUPREMACY. AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO DO THAT. WHEN PEOPLE SAY DO SOMETHING, WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING THAT’S MEANINGFUL THAT WILL STOP THESE MASS SHOOTINGS. NOT SOMETHING THAT MAKES EVERYBODY FEEL ABOUT IT THAT MAKES US ALL SAFER.>>Bill: 2 MINUTES, TWO TOPICS. IN NORTH KOREA, THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE RECEIVED A THREE-PAGE LETTER FROM CHAIRMAN KIM, SAID THAT ON FRIDAY, TWEETED THIS ON SATURDAY. “IT WAS A SMALL APOLOGY FOR TESTING SHORT-RANGE MISSILES AND THE TESTING WOULD STOP WHEN THE EXERCISES ENDED.” I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING KIM JONG UN IN THE NOT-TOO-DISTANT FUTURE. HE’S TESTED MISSILES FIVE TIMES IN TWO WEEKS. WHY WOULD YOU ENTERTAIN THE IDEA WITH MEETING WITH HIM?>>Kellyanne: BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT HAS MADE VERY CLEAR HE WOULD LIKE THERE TO BE DENUCLEARIZATION OF THE KORAN FINANCIAL. FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA WHO TOLD PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP, NORTH KOREA WILL BE YOUR MOST VEXING, CHALLENGING ISSUE, SO THIS PRESIDENT OPEN FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. HE’S MET WITH KIM A FEW TIMES. HE HAS SANCTIONS GOING ON IN KOREA. EVERYTHING NORTH KOREA — EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME. THERE ARE SANCTIONS IN PLACE UNTIL WE SEE IRREVERSIBLE, VERIFIABLE COMPLETE DENUCLEARIZATION AND WE DON’T SEE THAT YET. BUT SOME OF THE SHORT-RANGE MISSILE TESTS ALSO, I’M INFORMED, DO NOT VIOLATE THE SINGAPORE AGREEMENT AND THE PRESIDENT HAS MADE — TALK ABOUT TRANSPARENCY ENDOCRINE ABILITY, TWEETED OUT THAT UP TO THE SOUTH KOREA EXERCISES ARE OVER, ARE COMPLETED, THAT HE AND KIM CAN GET BACK TO THE NEGOTIATION TABLE. THIS PRESIDENT HAS ALSO DANGLED IN FRONT OF KIM MORE ECONOMICALLY PROSPEROUS, MORE FREE NORTH KOREA FOR HIS PEOPLE. SO THAT’S UP TO KIM AND WHEN THIS PRESIDENT WALKED AWAY FROM WHAT HE CONSIDERED TO BE A BAD DEAL SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, EVERYBODY WAS SHOCKED. HOW CAN HE DO THAT? HE DOES THAT EVERY TIME HE DOESN’T SEE A GOOD DEAL FOR AMERICA AND HE DIDN’T SEE IT — HE WANTS TO CONTINUE TO TALK TO HIM, TALK TO PRESIDENT XI ABOUT TRADE. IT DEFINITELY GOT ABOUT –>>Bill: THERE’S NO MEETING ON THE SCHEDULE RIGHT NOW, CORRECT?>>Kellyanne: NOT AT THE MOMENT BUT THIS WILL COME TOGETHER FAIRLY QUICKLY WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. TO BE ONE LESS THING ON THE CAMPING ON FRIDAY, THE PRESIDENT SAID THIS ABOUT JOE BIDEN.>>JOE BIDEN IS NOT PLAYING WITH A FULL DECK. THIS IS NOT SOMEBODY YOU CAN HAVE AS YOUR PRESIDENT. BUT IF HE GOT THE NOMINATION, I’D BE THRILLED. WE WILL DO BELIEVE — ORDERS THE PRESIDENT BELIEVE, RATHER, THAT JOE BIDEN WILL BE HIS OPPONENT?>>Kellyanne: IT’S POSSIBLE, THERE STILL 23 OR 24 OF THEM RUNNING. I SAW ON THE LATEST QUINNIPIAC POLL RELEASED THIS WEEK THAT 20 OF THE DEMOCRATS WERE AT LEAST BELOW 1% OR AT 1% AND A COUPLE MORE AT 2%, INCLUDING ONE YOU’RE ABOUT TO HAVE ONTO YOUR SHOW. I’M JUST READING THE POLLS AND TELLING YOU THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH THE DEMOCRATS ARE ATTACKING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S VICE PRESIDENT, JOE BIDEN, FOR BEING OUT OF TOUCH AND FOR WORKING WITH SEGREGATIONISTS, DEMOCRAT SENATORS, FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO SAY A COUPLE OF NUMBERS, SIX NUMBERS TO TEXT YOU. REALLY THE ONLY ONE OUT THERE WHO SEEMS TO BE PROPPING UP OBAMACARE, WHICH IS LEFT 28 MILLION PLUS AMERICANS WITH NO HEALTH INSURANCE WHATSOEVER, IT MAY BE JOE BIDEN, IT MAY BE SOMEONE ELSE, BUT IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL STUCK RAISING THEIR HANDS SAYING THEY WANT TO GIVE HEALTH BENEFITS TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, THAT THEY WANT TO HAVE GREEN NEW DEALS THAT COST $32 TRILLION AND GET RID OF AIRPLANE TRAVEL AND COWS. THEY ARE STUCK SAYING THEY WANT MEDICARE FOR ALL, WHICH IS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE THAT APART FROM THE MONETARY COST, THE MORAL COST OF WAITING US ALL SO MY STOMACH MAKING US ALL WAIT FOR CARE THE WAY VETERANS FIVE YEARS AGO DIED WAITING FOR CARE. THEY THINK THEY’RE GOING TO T THEY THINK THEY’RE GOING TO O THEY THINK THEY’RE GOING TO R THEY THINK THEY’RE GOING TO N AGAINST DONALD TRUMP. THEY ARE RUNNING AGAINST THE TRUMP ECONOMY ALSO. RUNNING AGAINST DEREGULATION, RUNNING AGAINST THE FACT THAT AMERICA IS NOW THE WORLD’S LARGEST NET EXPORTER OF NATURAL GAS AND OIL. THEY’RE RUNNING AGAINST THIS BIG BOOM IN MANUFACTURING AND SMALL BUSINESS OWNERSHIP. RUNNING AGAINST A PRESIDENT WHO SIGNED INTO LAW SOMETHING PRESIDENT OBAMA AND JOE BIDEN DID NOT, WHICH WAS FIXED NEXT, WHICH ACTUALLY COULD STOP A LOT OF THESE MASS SHOOTERS. WHATEVER IT IS, THEY HAVE TO REALLY DEFEND SOCIALISM NOW AND GOVERNMENT-RUN THINGS, BUT JOE BIDEN IS BEING ATTACKED FROM WITHIN. BEING ATTACKED BY KAMALA HARRIS AND CORY BOOKER.>>Bill: THAT’S WHAT PRIMARIES ARE ABOUT. THAT’S WHAT ELECTIONS ARE ABOUT TOO.
