Conway said at the time that he was stepping away from The Lincoln Project to “devote more time to family matters,” but added that he continued to “support the Lincoln Project and its mission. Passionately.” 

The announcement on his departure came at roughly the same time news broke about Kellyanne Conway’s departure from the White House at the end of August. 

Trump has continuously pushed back at The Lincoln Project over the group’s critical messaging, personally attacking George Conway in a series of tweets posted in May. 

“I don’t know what Kellyanne did to her deranged loser of a husband, Moonface, but it must have been really bad,” Trump said in one of the tweets.
