"My Conscience Is Clean, My Mission Is Clear" — CNN's Chris Cuomo

'He agreed to the meeting based on a contact from the Miss Universe Pageant'.

Another good question via David Graham: How can it be, as Don Jr claims, that the president wasn't aware of this meeting when it happened?

When the meeting occurred, Paul Manafort was still in charge.

As his show's opener, Colbert replaced Jake Tapper's questions to Kellyanne Conway with his own, in a fake interview with the White House spokesperson. "The whole time she was on, that was all they wanted to talk about".

"Please connect America with the information they need", Conway said. There was no follow-up. "What I do is I cover what I think matters to people".

Conway told Stephanopoulos that when she became campaign manager, no one turned over intelligence on Clinton. After playing the clip, host George Stephanopoulos asked Conway pointedly who had "misled her" and why those present at the recently revealed meeting let the "denials stand for so many months".

Conway then said that Cuomo was just trying to "go viral" with his statements. "We have many different meetings in the campaign, and some of them are unhelpful and not particularly meaningful".

'This was standard operating procedure for the campaign, ' she asserted. We had a meeting in June 2016.

"It was a short introductory meeting". I asked Jared and Paul to stop by. (Supposedly nothing came of it and they ended up discussing adoption and the Magnitsky Act.) Who told the Times what the real objective of the meeting was, embarrassing Junior and forcing him to put out that second statement? "Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense", Trump Jr. told the Times.

Donald Jr has explained that the Russian lawyer in the June meeting had information that Russian operatives were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs Clinton. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. "No information was received that was meaningful or helpful and no action was taken", Conway said. "I want to talk about America", Conway told Cuomo.

For 35 minutes, Conway sparred with anchor Chris Cuomo, mostly over press coverage. For something that White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus called "a big nothing burger," Trump and his son Donald Jr. are saying an very bad lot about it. And then a meeting in which he didn't allow a notetaker to be in it.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Because she was going to give damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

After a slight pause, Conway replied: "Chris, you keep on saying "Russia". And it's an unfair premise'.

Conway often tried to change the subject, but Cuomo remained dogged to stay on Russian Federation.

"We had the VA secretary [on CNN]", Cuomo noted, before declaring, "My conscience is clean". The snarky looks, the furrowed brows, the rolling of the eyes from so many people on your panels - and you know it. Director James Comey possibly having classified information in some of the memos he wrote, but didn't disclose.

"So unnamed sources are ok for Comey but not for Trump?" "I'm not telling you". But the fact is that report is a bombshell people should know about...'

"You don't know what I care about!"
