People were quick to point out that Flynn had already been indicted

Kellyanne Conway, a counselor for President Donald Trump, on Thursday celebrated the news that a former Obama White House official was indicted as part of a case connected to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

Gregory Craig, who worked as the White House Counsel under President Barack Obama, was indicted on charges of making false statements about his work on behalf of Ukraine. He faces up to five years in prison, according to CNBC.

The New York Times reported that the charges stem from Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election, which ended last month.

Conway appeared happy that someone connected with the White House was “finally” indicted.

“BREAKING NEWS! FINALLY! WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL INDICTED in connection with MUELLER investigation!” she wrote on Twitter.

However, Michael Flynn, who worked as a national security adviser for President Donald Trump, was changed by Mueller’s team in December 2017.

People were quick to point out that Flynn had already been indicted. However, it may be that Conway was celebrating a Democrat being indicted, something the president has brought up numerous times in the past two years.
