Former Pence aide: White House staffers discussed Trump refusing to leave office Progressive group buys domain name of Trump's No. 1 Supreme Court pick MORE, blasted the president on Friday amid scrutiny over a whistleblower complaint reportedly involving Trump's call with a foreign leader, calling the allegations "over the top."

“Trump has already done more than enough to warrant impeachment and removal,” Conway wrote in the op-ed published by The Washington Post on Friday. “The current whistleblowing allegations, however, are even worse.”

He continued, “Given how Trump seems ever bent on putting himself above the law, something like what might have happened between him and Ukraine — abusing presidential authority for personal benefit — was almost inevitable. Yet if that is what occurred, part of the responsibility lies with Congress, which has failed to act on the blatant obstruction that Mueller detailed months ago.”


Conway also used the op-ed to call on Congress to act, writing that “constitutional procrastination has probably emboldened Trump” but that it is time for lawmakers to remove the “cancer on the presidency … before it’s too late.”

Conway’s comments come amid mounting scrutiny surrounding a whistleblower’s reported allegations that Trump made a “promise” to a foreign leader during a call.

The Washington Post, which broke the story, cited an unnamed intelligence official who made the complaint. The Post and The New York Times later reported that the complaint involved Ukraine.

"It doesn't matter what I discussed, but I'll tell you this, somebody ought to look into Joe Biden's statement," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office during a meeting with the Australian prime minister.

Trump allies have recently raised questions about Joe Biden's push in 2016 for Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was looking into a gas company with ties to Hunter Biden.

Ukraine's current prosecutor said earlier this year he had no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe Biden or his son.

The scrutiny over the whistleblower complaint also comes after the Trump administration had delayed $250 million in aid to Ukraine until earlier this month.

Conway said Thursday that if the reports about the complaint are true, Trump should be impeached "without delay."
