#Donald Trump has continued to deny any wrongdoing in regards to whether or not he has been in cahoots with Russia. Despite the evidence that continues to be revealed, Presidential Counsel #Kellyanne Conway is sticking up for the commander in chief.

Conway on Trump

In the most recent round of polling, Donald Trump has seen his approval rating drop below 50 percent. While the right-leaning Rasmussen poll shows slightly better numbers, the consensus is that the former host of "The Apprentice" is under water with the majority of the American people. While his controversial rhetoric and policy proposals have led to his drop in popularity, nothing has become a thorn in Trump's side like the ongoing investigation into Russia and the country's possible collusion with the #White House.

After firing James Comey as the head of the FBI last month, an avalanche of controversy has followed the president. Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who is now special counsel to the Russian investigation, is investigating the president over potential obstruction of justice. The news was first reported by the Washington Post, but the White House's response has been confusing. Trump appeared to confirm that he was under investigation during a tweet last week, but that information was shot down by one of the president's lawyers. These issues, and more, were discussed with Kellyanne Conway during the June 19 edition of "Fox & Friends" on Fox News.

Joining the hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Monday morning was Kellyanne Conway and the former campaign manager did her best to defend Donald Trump, while ripping into Democratic Party opposition in the process.

"We're starting to waste tens of millions of taxpayers' money on this endeavor," Conway noted, before adding, "If there’s something there, let's hear about it."

"What are we talking about here?" Kellyanne Conway said, claiming that Donald Trump was "trying to move on to the policy and solutions of the day." Not stopping there, Conway went on to accuse the opposition, Democrats, of creating a resistance against the president. "I think this is part of the resistance and obstruction," she noted.

Moving forward

While it's unknown how the current investigation into Russia is going to play out, the mounting pressure appears to be putting strain on the administration. As time moves forward, only time will tell how Donald Trump handles the issue at hand after just six months in office.
