George Conway: We might have to impeach Trump again
Conservative lawyer and prominent Trump critic George Conway suggested this week that the House may need to impeach President Trump again.
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.
The president removed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland from their positions Friday, while reassigning Vindman’s brother Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman.
Conway wrote that Trump is following Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) prediction that the president will “do what’s right for Donald Trump” instead of “what is right for this country.”
“And he will do it again,” Conway said. “He did do it again by firing the Vindmans and Sondland. He’s telling us he will do it again. And no one can seriously doubt it, even those who voted to acquit.”
Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway criticized Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) for voting last week to acquit Trump and saying she hoped Trump had learned “a pretty big lesson” from 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.
