President Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway is getting Secret Service protection after receiving suspicious “white substances” at her home, she revealed in a TV interview.
The White House counselor — Trump’s most visible adviser — is being protected by the same agency tasked with his security after receiving the threats, Conway told Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“Because of what the press is doing now to me, I have Secret Service protection,” she said. “We have packages delivered to my house with white substances. That is a shame.”
While Conway’s Secret Service detail is unusual, it is not without precedent.
Barack Obama’s closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, also was protected by the agency.
Asked by the Washington Post about the relationship among Trump’s top advisers — herself, Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner and Reince Priebus — Conway said it was good.
“We’re a cohesive unit,” Conway said.
“The senior team exhibits many of the characteristics President Trump has always valued: cohesion, collaboration, high energy and high impact,” she added.
According to the report, Conway will be focused on health care and issues related to veterans — and is expecting to spend less time on TV.
