George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, slammed President Trump’s assertion on Monday that the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller to oversee the Russia probe "is totally unconstitutional."
"The appointment of the Special Councel [sic] is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!" Trump wrote on Twitter, before deleting the post and re-posting it with the spelling error corrected.
George Conway shared commentary by a Politico reporter critiquing Trump’s claim, saying: "If this is true, you’d think Trump’s ex-campaign chairman would’ve made this argument since he’s facing a potential life sentence. But he hasn’t."
Conway added his own commentary, writing: "And if this were true, you’d think this conservative Republican-controlled Department of Justice would revoke or decline to utilize the Special Counsel regulations. But it hasn’t."
Conway has a history of critiquing his wife’s boss on Twitter.
Last month, he shared on Twitter a link to the Federal Election Commission rules after it was revealed Trump reimbursed his personal attorney for a payment the attorney made to keep adult-film star Stormy Daniels quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.
Writers who have been critical of the president even alleged in May that the White House counselor’s husband emailed them with suggested improvements for their arguments.
