Jeremy Peters: Conway Attacking Romney on Thanksgiving Is ‘Unprecedented’ and ‘Unbelievable’

‘What they’re worried about is that Mitt Romney and his allies ... would operate completely independently from the White House’

PETERS: "What they’re worried about is that Mitt Romney and his allies, if installed in the State Department, would operate completely independently from the White House and any time there was any kind of distance between the White House and the State Department that there would be efforts to make the State Department look better vis-à-vis the White House. I understand that given the hostility that Mitt Romney showed to Donald Trump over the course of the campaign, but to do this in such an unprecedented way attacking him on Thanksgiving morning on Twitter, as Kellyanne did, is really kind of unbelievable."
