Police visit home of former Trump aide Kellyanne Conway
Police in New Jersey reportedly visited the home of former Trump White House advisor Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday, a day after her 16-year-old daughter Claudia complained on social media about a topless photo of her that briefly appeared on her mom’s Twitter account.
“I have no comment,” Kellyanne Conway told CNBC when asked about the police visit and how a photo of her daughter was posted as a Twitter Fleet.
The New Jersey Department of Children and Families also is “looking into all concerns around the incident” involving the Conway family, who lives in the town of Alpine, Buzzfeed News reported Tuesday.
DCF told CNBC that it could not confirm any investigations, pending or otherwise, because of confidentiality rules.
The New York Post on Tuesday reported that four Alpine police officers visited the Conway home and spent an hour in the house before leaving. The Post article contained a photo of the cops at the house.
Alpine Police Chief Christopher Belcolle told The Post, “An investigation is being conducted. No additional information can be released.”
Belcolle did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
Claudia Conway is a prolific user of the social media app TikTok, where she has documented complaints and disputes with her mother.
Kellyanne Conway, who had helped run former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, served as a senior White House advisor until last August, when she resigned. Conway said she wanted to spend more time with her children.
“For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama,” she said in a statement at the time.
On Monday, Claudia on a TikTok video spoke about a topless photo of herself that was reportedly posted as a Twitter Fleet by Kellyanne Conway’s account. Twitter Fleets are deleted after 24 hours, as a rule.
The photo reportedly was quickly deleted, long before it normally would have been.
A Twitter spokesperson told CNBC, “Through technology and human review, we’ll proactively remove any images that violate the Twitter Rules.”
Twitter earlier this month suspended Trump’s account permanently, saying his tweets were a risk of inciting further violence on the heels of an invasion of the U.S. Capitol by thousands of his supporters in a botched effort to overturn the election of Joe Biden as president.
