Prominent Republican attorney George Conway ripped President Donald Trump on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, spent his day with MSNBC to provide live analysis on the first day of televised impeachment hearings.

“It’s also striking, George, that every defense falls apart almost before the end of a single news cycle,” anchor Nicolle Wallace reported. “Everything that people have said in an effort to defend him has collapsed under the weight of the president’s conduct.”

“What we just heard the president say is delusional,” Conway replied. “And it’s debilitating.”

“It’s delusional to say that the call was perfect. It’s delusional to say that the whistleblower was wrong in any significant respect. It’s delusional to say that the [Inspector General] said anything that was incorrect or acted anything but responsibly,” he explained.

“And because it’s so delusional, the Republicans can’t wage any coherent defense,” he noted.

“Sometimes when you’re defending people you have to admit there was something not quite right and that preserves some credibility,” Conway explained. “The Republicans are just shooting away their credibility. They have none now.”

"These are probably some of the most turbulent times in Italy," said Ricasoli, 64, the 32nd Baron of Brolio whose family's roots to Tuscany stretches back to 1141.

"We've seen a strong decrease in wine sales -- particularly in restaurants and bars that specialise in the high end of the market," he told AFP at his winery with the same family name.

The president's desire to "to move quickly" on the process, despite Democrats' vehement opposition, is likely to dominate the campaigns – alongside other hot-button issues such as the coronavirus and America's ongoing racial reckoning – ahead of the November 3 election.

Published

on

The Russian foreign ministry on Sunday condemned the unilateral declaration by the United States that UN sanctions on Iran are back in force as "illegitimate" and "unacceptable".

Russia, a key ally of Iran, accused Washington of putting on a "theatrical performance" and insisted that the US statements "do not correspond to reality."

It accused the US of "trying to force everyone to wear virtual reality goggles" and accept its version of events, adding: "The world is not an American computer game."
