Much attention has been paid to the fact that George Conway, husband White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway, is very critical of Donald Trump. Kellyanne is still loyal to Trump, and George thinks he should be removed from office. For obvious reasons, this makes for a very interesting and very public marital spat.
In his latest impeachment remarks on CNN, George Conway took aim at the GOP Senators who will be jurors in Trump’s impeachment trial:
“What are they afraid of? They going to hear evidence they won’t like? That’s the thing that I find most disturbing about it, is they don’t want to hear the evidence because they know the truth. They know he’s guilty. And they don’t want to hear the evidence because they don’t want the American public to see it too.”
This comes after much deliberate stonewalling on the part of the Republican-controlled Senate, headed up by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). They are determined to protect Trump at all costs, and are taking steps to do so at a rapid pace. Said steps include, but are no limited to, blocking witnesses that could offer evidence of a quid pro quo in the matter of the now-infamous Ukraine call, and documents that could provide evidence of Trump’s engagement in criminal wrongdoing.
Despite the clear need for the jurors on the trial and the American people to know all of the evidence in this national and international crisis, the Republicans have one thing and one thing only on their minds: Protecting Trump. They have put party before country, and will continue to do so.
Thankfully, there are credible conservatives out there like George Conway who are speaking truth to power. Hopefully, more of them come out of the woodwork to help save our republic.
