As the pressure continues to mount on Donald Trump over the growing Russian scandal, the White House is doing their best to push back. In her latest interview, Kellyanne Conway is deflecting attention onto the Democratic Party.

Conway on Dems

The issue over the Russian scandal started during the early days of the 2016 presidential election. When Donald Trump made his candidacy official in June 2015, it didn't take long before speculation grew about his potential ties to the Kremlin. Refusing to release his tax returns raised the first question around Trump, which only continued after his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

After several past and current advisers and associates were exposed with various ties to Russia, the former host of "The Apprentice" was backed into a corner. Following the election results last November, reports from credible news outlets as well as government agencies confirmed that not only did Russia hack the election and the Democratic National Committee, but did so with the goal of helping the Trump campaign. After the recent testimony of former FBI Director James Comey last week, the White House is back on the defensive. During the June 12 edition of "Fox & Friends," Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway spoke out about the current status of the scandal and her views on the Democratic Party.

While joining the "Fox & Friends" hosts on Monday morning, Kellyanne Conway didn't hold back her thoughts on the ongoing Russian investigation, going as far as claiming that the Democrats were guilty of obstruction with their obsession over the Kremlin.

"The Democrats, now they basically say the word 'Russia' more than they say 'America,'" Conway claimed, before adding, "They are obsessive about this."

Not stopping there, Kellyanne Conway went on to accuse the Democratic Party of being guilty of obstruction.

"The Democrats are guilty of obstruction of progress," she noted, before going on to say that Democrats need to get over the results of the election and accept the fact that Donald Trump is the commander in chief.

Despite the constant denial from Kellyanne Conway and the rest of the White House, Donald Trump is facing an uphill battle as evidence continues to be released that appears to link himself and his team back to Russia. While no so-called smoking gun has been presented to the public, enough information has been revealed that is expected to keep the story and scandal hanging over the head of the president for the foreseeable future.
