Conway wrote in a Washington Post opinion piece Monday that Trump’s firing of two witnesses who testified in the House impeachment inquiry could justify a second impeachment.

Collins later said she was being “aspirational" with her remarks.

Conway said in Monday's op-ed it was a “lofty aspiration –– that the president refrain from committing an impeachable defense.”

“As we’ve now seen, his rage leads to retribution and misconduct, which beget more criticism, and more investigation, and even more rage, retribution and misconduct,” Conway wrote. “So America beware: The state is Trump, and he’s very, very angry. We might, indeed, have to do it again.”

The Senate acquitted Trump on both articles of impeachment last week.
