Somehow, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway has managed to remain on Donald Trump’s right side as person after person has fallen through the president’s revolving door. Apparently, she has figured out the key to remaining off of the chopping block, which has made her a rare individual, but Trump’s latest news was surprising.

Bloomberg reported that even though the acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was willing to do anything the president asked, he was never on firm ground with Trump. In a recent press conference, Mulvaney said that the commander-in-chief refused to provide military aid to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky unless he provided publicly announced he was investigating former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Mulvaney gave evidence of the president’s quid pro quo. That will likely end up as a fatal blow.

The younger Biden served on the board of a utility company while his father was in office. Both have been investigated and exonerated.

POTUS has held the position of chief of staff over Mulvaney’s head. Then, in a recent cabinet meeting, the president did not answer any reporter’s questions about whether he was going to fire him.

According to Bloomberg, Trump has been asking around what they think about him nominating Conway for the new permanent chief of staff.

It’s an odd choice given Conway’s troubling history of leaking information to the press and trying to diminish other White House staffers in the press. Vanity Fair exposed Conway for her long history of leaking. She has used that tool to put down other White House members in the press. 

When Conway appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski remembered that she called her “two-faced” about her boss. The president’s top aide talked about Trump in glowing terms. Then, once the cameras were off, she said:

‘Blech, I need to take a shower.’

Brzezinski commented that it was because she disliked Trump so much. Co-host Joe Scarborough considered that Conway only took the job for the money. After that experience, the show refused to book Conway for commentary or updates. They knew that she would lie.

Former co-host of Fox & Friends Abby Huntsman asked Mrs. Conway about whether she was, indeed, the “No. 1 leaker.” The president’s aide managed to dodge the question indicating:

‘[L]eakers get great press, [and] one day, Abby, I will have my say.’

Kellyanne Conway’s husband, well-regarded Washington D.C. attorney George Conway has been one of Trump’s worst critics.

Ronald Kessler authored The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game. He wrote that Conway was “the No.1 leaker.” The author appeared in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, and he said that Conway:

‘[L]eaks more information to the press than any other individual working in the White House.’

Kessler revealed:

‘While I was interviewing Kellyanne at the White House, she forgot that she was on the record. She started lashing into Reince Priebus. She said the most mean, cutting and obviously untrue things about Reince, and I didn’t include them in the book because they were so unfair.

‘She also lit into Jared and Ivanka, saying that they leak against Steve Bannon. I know White House aides who have seen texts she has sent to other journalists, dissing her colleagues, leaking material.’

Apparently, Treasury Chair Steve Mnuchin has been another possible choice for the job of Chief of Staff. Like Conway, he has stood up for the president.
