@KellyanneLeaks has become one of the hottest new accounts on Twitter, and it’s all because of a series of posts that may have outed Kellyanne Conway’s alleged off-the-record comments about her White House colleagues at a Washington, D.C. party.
New reports suggest that President Donald Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway may have been spilling some proverbial tea as she spoke to reporters Friday at the British Embassy. The real-time tweets published on the newly-created account @KellyanneLeaks include quotes of comments the White House counselor purportedly made about Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Legislative Affairs director Marc Short, and other staffers, as well as leaks of sensitive conversations between Priebus and Trump that weren’t elaborated on in detail in any of the tweets.
According to Politico, the tweets suggest that Conway’s off-the-record comments include telling reporters and other attendees that the President had told her to “go out there and say ‘Jim Comey is going to have to wait and see about the tapes.'” This was in reference to former FBI director James Comey’s recent Senate testimony on Trump’s purported collusion with the Russian government to rig the results of the 2016 presidential elections.
“I mean, that’s basically the same as ‘no comment,'” Conway quipped, per the @KellyanneLeaks Twitter account.
The Twitter account, per the Daily Mail, went on to suggest that Kellyanne Conway was mocking Reince Priebus, allegedly imitating the Chief of Staff in a “dopey voice” as she said the following words:
“No leaks guuuys.”
‘He should just be honest: “I’m upset because there’s someone working on a story who pronounces it RAYNSE instead of REINCE”.’
The @KellyanneLeaks account had posted a photo of Conway “seemingly embarrassed” as she had her head in her hands, supposedly after she had openly discussed recent White House events to other party guests. She was then joined by some Washington Post reporters, upon which, as claimed, she began to “hold court” and dish out further dirt on Reince Priebus, and the “ineffectiveness of his RNC world.”
Kellyanne Conway then allegedly took aim at White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short, suggesting that he doesn’t do anything important in his role.
“At one point @KellyannePolls said “Honestly, what the f*** does Marc Short do all day?”‘
Although the Inquisitr cannot definitively corroborate whether Kellyanne Conway made the above comments at the British Embassy party, Politico claimed in its report that its own source is behind the @KellyanneLeaks account, and two other sources are able to back up her remarks from Friday night.
Before some WaPo folks joined her, she was talking about recent weeks in the WH to some other party guests. This expression was telling. 7/ pic.twitter.com/pR8KIuZSsF

With @KellyanneLeaks attracting more than 14,000 followers over the past two days, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer disputed the claims made by the account. Politico quoted Spicer as saying Conway wouldn’t make such comments about Marc Short, as she is “very close” to him, and that President Trump’s counselor wasn’t actually mocking Rence Priebus, but rather making fun of reporters for publishing White House “intrigue stories” and “how wrong (the stories) have been.”
In addition, Spicer claims that Kellyanne Conway did not, in fact, balk when Donald Trump asked her to comment about James Comey, but was instead telling party guests what lawyers advised the White House to say.
The @KellyanneLeaks account did not post any new tweets since Friday, until the account’s operators retweeted Donald Trump’s Sunday morning remark about the likely prevalence of “James Comey leaks” in the near future, adding the following comment.
“Testifying to Congress ≠ leaking about you and @Reince at a foreign embassy.”
As of this writing, neither Kellyanne Conway nor anyone she had allegedly talked about at the British Embassy party has yet to publicly comment on the @KellyanneLeaks Twitter account.
