Kellyanne Conway slams Huffman, Loughlin as ‘stupid’ over admissions cheating scheme

Representatives for Loughlin and Giannulli, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The scam, said prosecutors, arranged for children to be recruited as athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities.

Another form of Singer's scheme involved paying off officials who administered the SATs, according to the criminal complaint. The consultant also hired ringers to take college entrance exams for students, and paid off insiders at testing centers to correct students' answers.

Conway, President Trump's top adviser, called Huffman, a "Desperate Housewives" star, and Loughlin, a "Full House" alum, "stupid", accusing them of "lying and buying" spots in college for their kids.

"The Department of Justice believes that Yale has been the victim of a crime perpetrated by its former women's soccer coach", Yale said in a statement. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, sat in court as the magistrate ordered her free on $250,000 bail. Loughlin and her husband allegedly agreed to pay $500,000 in bribes to get both of their daughters designated as potential crew team recruits for USC.

Standing before the judge, Huffman made it clear she understood the charges before her. Loughlin asked a witness according to a transcript of a wiretapped conversation.

Other prominent individuals indicted in the scheme include William McGlashan, the CEO of a private equity firm, and Jane Buckingham, the president of a Los Angeles marketing firm. "And I didn't mean it that way", adding, "I know that it's a privilege and it's a blessing and I'm really grateful".

Huffman is reportedly set to appear in a Boston court later this month for a preliminary hearing. The parents bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into selective schools, authorities said.

The alleged masterminds of the scam and parents who paid into it could all face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

'This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth, combined with fraud, ' US Attorney Lelling said at a press conference after the affidavit was filed.

"We're not talking about donating a building", he said.

"For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected".

In addition to her Instagram page, with more than 1 million followers, Olivia Giannulli, 19, manages a YouTube channel with almost 2 million subscribers.
