DANA BASH (HOST): OK, now you're in charge of Donald Trump's campaign. Given that, given how you feel, are we going to see Donald Trump's tax returns soon?

KELLYANNE CONWAY: So, now that I'm on the inside, I know something I didn't know then,which is he is under audit and what that means. And, he has said very clearly, and I back him up completely, that when the audit is completed he will release the tax returns. And let mejust say something about transparency. It comes in many different forms, Dana, as does accountability and as does truthfulness. And we can't imagine going up against a less transparent, less accountable, more sort of rigged and corrupt individual as our political opponent than Hillary Clinton. She's had a terrible week when it comes to being transparent and accountable. Whether it's the revelations of the pay-for-play at the -- in the State Department, that I know that CNN is very much on top of and your reporting is, Dana. As well as, as well as, the -- what happened at the Clinton Foundation, which is a big hot mess.

BASH: And we are talking about that for sure, but in this particular interview and these questions are about Donald Trump. And you mentioned the audit. According to his lawyers, the years 2002 to 2008 are no longer under audit. So would you release those tax returns? 

CONWAY: No, I would not. And this entire tax return debate is somewhat confounding to me in the following sense. I don't think that it creates one job, gets one more individual who does not have health insurance covered by health insurance, particularly under the disaster that has been Obamacare with these private insurers pulling out of our exchanges now and reporting billions of dollars of losses. What I think people are most concerned about is; how would a President Trump, or how would a President Hillary, affect their tax bill?
