‘This is insane’: George Conway says ‘Trump’s gotta go’ after bombshell about call with China

Published

on

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway said it was imperative that President Donald Trump be removed from office after a bombshell report that the president sought dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden from China during a June phone call.

“When President Donald Trump suggested — without prompting — that China should investigate Joe Biden and his son, he thrust another political grudge into what was already the world’s most complicated and consequential relationship,” CNN reported Thursday. “The move startled Chinese officials, who say they have little interest in becoming embroiled in a US political controversy. And it amounted to the latest extraordinary effort by Trump to openly request political assistance from foreign governments.”

“Thursday’s comments weren’t the first time Trump has injected Biden into his relationship with China, though he said Thursday he has never pushed Xi to investigate the former vice president,” CNN noted. “During a phone call with Xi on June 18, Trump raised Biden’s political prospects as well as those of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who by then had started rising in the polls, according to two people familiar with the discussion.”

“In that call, Trump also told Xi he would remain quiet on Hong Kong protests as trade talks progressed,” the network added.

The story was tweeted by CNN law enforcement correspondent Josh Campbell.

“Trump raised Biden with the Chinese President in a June phone call housed in highly-secure server,” Campbell tweeted.

The tweet was noticed by Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

“This is insane,” he declared. “Trump’s gotta go.”

President helped ‘increase anti-Trump turnout’ in red-state governor’s races — which could spell disaster for the GOP

Published

President Donald Trump was once the Republican Party's greatest asset in an election, mobilizing thousands of supporters to rush to the polls. Recently, however, it seems he's now driving anti-Trump votes up so much that it may no longer be worth the Trump trouble.

“So you’ve got to give me a big win, please,” Trump told a Louisiana crowd this week before the GOP candidate lost the governor's race in a red state.

“What Trump did in Louisiana was increase voter participation. While he increased the pro-Trump turnout, he also increased the anti-Trump turnout. That’s kind of the lesson here,” polling analyst Ron Faucheux told The Washington Post in an interview.

Chief of staff and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was one of the main points of contact, and he replied to the email saying he would schedule the call with Zelensky.

“I talked to Zelensky just now. He is prepared to receive Potus’ call. Will assure him that he intends to run a fully transparent investigation and will ‘turn over every stone,’” Sondland wrote in an email on July 19.

Given President Donald Trump worked to intimidate witnesses in real-time during the hearings on the impeachment inquiry last week, the White House is desperately searching for something that can keep him busy.

Axios reported Sunday, the presidential daily schedule will be designed to keep the president distracted with their own counter-programming.

"Trump's schedule for the coming week shows him governing," Axios reported. He'll be promoting jobs and talking about things like "art and culture."
