George Conway perfectly destroys Jim Jordan’s pathetic attempt to blow off Trump’s criminality

Published

on

George Conway  — the husband of the senior adviser to the president and daily thorn in Donald Trump’s side — slapped aside two GOP lawmakers who smirked on national TV while trying to minimize the president’s criminal actions.

Replying to a clip of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) on CNN where the two Republican lawmakers glibly suggested that asking someone to commit an act of violence isn’t necessarily a crime, conservative attorney Conway proposed a scenario that might make them think twice.

Or maybe not considering their defense of all things Trump-related.

“Suppose a POTUS directed SecDef and CJCS to surround the Capitol with tanks and to arrest all opposition members of Congress, and suppose they patriotically disobey that order. Wouldn’t that POTUS still have committed an impeachable offense?” Conway tweeted.

In lawyerly fashion, he followed up: “And so why shouldn’t the same principle—that unsuccessful misconduct matters—apply to repeated, wrongful, underhanded, conflicted, and self-interested efforts, in derogation of the national interest, to obstruct or impede a critical counterintelligence and criminal investigation?”

A new study, conducted at the University of Indianapolis and published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine, offers a profound hint. The study, which examined homicide rates by state from 1990 to 2016, suggests that most forms of homicide — those committed against friends, acquaintances, and strangers — are negligibly affected by firearm ownership rates. But one particular category of homicide is sharply correlated with the presence of guns: domestic violence.

Nancy Pelosi clap

House conservatives are livid after President Donald Trump struck a budget deal with Democrats.

"You should veto this bill because it is fiscally irresponsible," the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Trump. "It blows well beyond what was intended with the 2011 [Budget Control Act] caps. Furthermore, it continues spending hundreds of billions more than what we take in a year and does not put our nation on a path towards a balanced budget."

The effort is being driven by first-term Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX).

"As the greatest nation in the history of the world, the least we can do is cut a deal that does not sabotage the fiscal future of our nation while endangering millions of American and migrants because of our porous border," the lawmakers wrote. "We can do better."
