"Take that Republican hat off and look at it neutrally," he said. "Look at what you would have done if Donald Trump were a Democrat. Would you be making these ridiculous arguments about process?"

"If Barack Obama had done this, they'd be out for blood, and they'd be right," he added. 

Before his Wednesday MSNBC appearance, Conway had not appeared on TV in a commentating capacity since Trump took office in January 2017. 

He appeared on the network as part of its coverage of the first public impeachment hearings Wednesday. William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, and George Kent, deputy assistant secretary in the European and Eurasian Bureau at the State Department, were slated to testify. 

Conway has frequently criticized the president and during his Wednesday TV commentary, he said that Trump was "using the power of the presidency in its most unchecked area, foreign affairs, to advance his own personal interest as opposed to the country's."

House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump over his dealings with Ukraine in September. He and many of his Republican allies criticized the probe.
