EXCLUSIVE: Kellyanne Conway insists Donald Trump ‘believes he won the election’ and blames Mark Meadows for Stop the Steal

June 24, 2022

Kellyanne Conway said that Donald Trump‘s former chief of staff Mark Meadows is ‘responsible’ for the Stop the Steal rally and protests in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021 and doubled-down that the former president really does think he won the 2020 election.

‘I hold Mark Meadows responsible because you are not going to get all these different supplicants, showmen and charlatans, as I say in the book, around the resolute desk in the oval office without the approval, if not the invitation of the chief of staff,’ Conway said in an upcoming episode of The Daily California with Steve Hilton exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com.

Conway served as senior counselor to Trump from the first day of his presidency until just five months before he vacated the White House. She was a frequent pundit for the president during the campaign and following his election to office.

She told Hilton in a podcast episode being released on Monday that Meadows allowing too many people access to Trump in the final weeks and months of his presidency was ‘problematic’ and ‘crowded out all of the sun of the Trump presidency.’

‘So Giuliani’s in there, Jenna Ellis, his lawyer, Sidney Powell, they’re all involved, but then there are people that we probably don’t even know about,’ Conway explained.

Trump spoke at a Stop the Steal rally outside the White House gates on January 6, 2021 before a group of his supporters descended on the Capitol to try and stop Congress from certifying the Electoral College results for Joe Biden.

The January 6 select committee attempted to prove in their public hearings this month that Trump knew he lost the 2020 presidential election, but still pushed the ‘Big Lie’ in an attempt to overturn the true results.
