George Conway, the Republican lawyer who is married to White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway, penned a new oped for the The Washington Post this week in which he called for Donald Trump to be impeached again.
Conway wrote that it almost seemed as if Trump was “competing” for the “ignominious fate” of being impeached for a second time. He argued that Trump’s latest impeachable offense stems from removing Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from office. Both of them had testified against Trump in the House’s impeachment inquiry.
As Trump removed Vindman from the National Security Council (NSC), he tweeted that he was “insubordinate” and “reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly.”
Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about “Lt. Col.” Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly, &…

Conway sited this tweet as proof that Trump removed Vindman from the NSC as revenge for his testimony. He wrote that if Trump was impeached in the House for obstruction, “there should be no doubt that punishing witnesses for complying with subpoenas and giving truthful testimony about presidential misconduct should make for a high crime or misdemeanor as well.”
Conway then shifted to showing how much he personally hates Trump by claiming that the president will always put himself ahead of the American people, adding that his “narcissism won’t allow him to put anyone else’s interests above his own, including the nation’s.”
“And he will do it again,” he wrote. “He did do it again by firing the Vindmans and Sondland. He’s telling us he will do it again. And no one can seriously doubt it, even those who voted to acquit.”
Conway’s wife Kellyanne was the first woman in American history to lead a presidential candidate to victory when Trump won in 2016. It’s sad that in the years since then, her husband has appeared to revel in humiliating her every chance he gets by publicly attacking her boss in the worst ways possible.
If a male conservative was doing this to his female liberal wife, the media would be up in arms over it. Since Conway is just embarrassing his Trump-supporting wife, however, the leftist media has no sympathy for Kellyanne.
The hypocrisy of liberals never ceases to amaze.
