New Jersey police reportedly visited the home of former Trump White House adviser Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday, the day after her 16-year-old daughter Claudia complained on social media about a topless photo of her that was briefly appeared on her mother’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 on Twitter Fleet.
The New Jersey Department of Children and Families “is also investigating any concerns related to the incident” involving the Conway family, who live in the town of Alpine, Buzzfeed News reported Tuesday.
DCF informed CNBC that due to confidentiality rules, no pending or other investigations could be confirmed.
The New York Post reported Tuesday that four officers from the Bergen District Attorney’s Office and Alpine Police visited Conway’s home and spent an hour inside before leaving. The Post article contained a photo of the police at home.
Christopher Belcolle, Police Chief of the Alps, told the Post: “An investigation is underway. No additional information can be released.”
Belcolle did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
In a statement to NBC News, Bergen County’s Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Rebein said, “We are unable to provide details, but we can confirm that the matter has been referred to our office and that every member of the Conway family has been unreservedly throughout the investigation was cooperative. “
Claudia Conway is a prolific user of the TikTok social media app, where she documented complaints and disputes with her mother.
Kellyanne Conway, who helped lead former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, served as senior adviser to the White House until August when she resigned. Conway said she wanted to spend more time with her children.
“At the moment and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mom,” she said in a statement at the time.
The resignation came after public attention to Claudia Conway’s complaints about Kellyanne and her father George Conway, a Republican attorney who is a staunch Trump critic.
On Monday, Claudia spoke in a TikTok video about a topless photo of herself that was reportedly posted by Kellyanne Conway’s account as Twitter Fleet. Twitter fleets are usually deleted after 24 hours.
The photo was reportedly quickly deleted long before it normally would have been.
A Twitter spokesperson told CNBC, “Through technology and human review, we will proactively remove any images that violate Twitter rules.”
Twitter earlier this month put Trump’s account on hold, saying his tweets risked further violence after thousands of his supporters invaded the U.S. Capitol to overthrow Joe Biden’s election as president.
Claudia Conway warned Kellyanne Conway in the TikTok video on Monday before the photo that she, Kellyanne, could go to jail.
But Claudia said in other TikTok videos posted on Tuesday that she believed her mother’s account had been hacked and that she regretted posting the TikTok video that targeted Kellyanne.
She said she didn’t think her mom posted the picture.
Claudia also said she would take a break from social media to work on her relationship with her mother and the rest of her family.
George Conway tweeted one of his daughter’s videos on Tuesday morning.
