George Conway, attorney and husband to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, shredded President Donald Trump’s attack on Rep. Justin Amash on Sunday with what could best be described as a “lie-by-lie” breakdown of the president’s tweets.
After Amash became on Saturday the first Republican lawmaker to publicly declare that Trump had engaged in an impeachable offense while in office, the president fired back Sunday morning at the congressman with a series of angry tweets, where he called Amash a “loser” and maintained his own innocence.
Hours later, Conway attempted to tear Trump’s tweets apart by claiming the president lied on almost every point he made.
“You never stop lying, do you?,” the attorney tweeted, alongside a reshare of Trump’s attacks on Amash.
Conway flagged a series of quotes Trump’s tweets — that the Mueller report was “son NO COLLUSION,” that the special counsel had concluded there had been “ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION,” that one can’t obstruct “when there is no crime,” that the “crimes were committed by the other side” — as “LIES.”
The only statement Conway flagged as “TRUE” was Trump’s assertion that Amash had played “right into our opponents hands.” Conway’s reasoning? “[Y]ou seem to oppose justice and the rule of law, so, at least on this one, TRUE.”
