"Except for that little part where the US Attorney’s Office says that you directed and coordinated with Cohen to commit two felonies," George Conway wrote in response to Trump. "Other than that, totally scot-free."

Federal prosecutors in New York submitted a new file in a case involving Cohen on Friday, in which they recommended "substantial" prison time for the former Trump lawyer, despite his cooperation in multiple investigations, including in special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerWhy a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel CNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump MORE's probe.

The document states that Cohen "acted in coordination with and at the direction of" Trump in steering payments to silence Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, two women claiming they had affairs with Trump, before the 2016 presidential election.

Prosecutors argue that the payments were meant to influence the election, thereby violating campaign finance laws. Cohen had previously implicated Trump when he pleaded guilty in August to violating campaign finance laws in relation to the payments.

Friday's filing does not specifically name Trump, but refers to an "Individual-1" that prosecutors say Cohen worked for before they launched a White House bid and said he worked for them as a personal attorney after they "had become the President of the United States."

Conway joined several other legal pundits, including former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal and former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, in saying that actions described in the filings amounted to two felony charges for Trump.

Conway has been a vocal critic of Trump's, and has recently co-authored op-eds in The New York Times and The Washington Post saying the president's actions have crossed legal lines. Earlier this week he also feuded with the president's son Eric TrumpEric TrumpTrump says 'no doubt' Tiger Woods will be back after accident Trump sends well wishes to Tiger Woods after crash Scottish lawmakers want to investigate Trump purchase of golf courses MORE.
