George Conway Suggests Trump ‘Might’ Need to Be Impeached Again

Republican lawyer George Conway believes President Donald Trump “might” need to be impeached again after he removed two impeachment witnesses from their positions. 

In an op-ed published in The Washington Post on Monday, Conway — a vocal critic of the president — suggested that Trump was almost “competing” for the “ignominious fate” of being impeached for a second time. 

On Feb. 7, Trump removed Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman and Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who both testified in the impeachment inquiry, from their posts.

After Trump removed Vindman from the National Security Council (NSC), he tweeted that Vindman was “insubordinate” and “reported contents of my ‘perfect’ calls incorrectly.”

Conway claimed that tweet shows Trump removed Vindman from the NSC in retaliation for his testimony in the House’s impeach inquiry. 

He continued to argue that if Trump was impeached in the House for obstruction of Congress “then there should be no doubt that punishing witnesses for complying with subpoenas and giving truthful testimony about presidential misconduct should make for a high crime or misdemeanor as well.”

Additionally, Conway said that Trump’s “narcissism won’t allow him to put anyone else’s interests above his own, including the nation’s.” 

He also claimed Trump has and will continue to put his personal interests ahead of those of the country. 

“And he will do it again. He did do it again by firing the Vindmans and Sondland. He’s telling us he will do it again. And no one can seriously doubt it, even those who voted to acquit.”

“We have had three years of Trump’s use of presidential power for vindictive ends,” Conway said before listing a series of incidents where Trump allegedly used the office of the president to retaliate against his rivals.

“And he’ll only get worse. Narcissistic leaders such as Trump always do. As we’ve now seen, his rage leads to retribution and misconduct, which beget more criticism, and more investigation and even more rage, retribution, and misconduct. Over and over again,” he added. 

Finally, Conway suggested that “we might, indeed, have to” impeach Trump again. Some House Democrats previously suggested that if the Senate acquitted Trump, they might launch a second impeachment inquiry. 

After Trump removed Vindman, and his twin brother Yevgeny, from the NSC, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed it was “retaliation” for testifying against Trump in the impeachment probe.

However, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien reportedly had been planning on cutting NSC staff “to bring it back to a size that’s manageable and efficient.”

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also noted on Twitter that Vindman “was not ‘fired’ he’s still an Army officer.”

  1. The worst part, as a taxpayer, is that all OUR money spent on this shit does nothing.

    Remember that the next time the Left asks more funding for its desires.

    Just like my local school board is considering new, automated doors to make sure transgenders get secure bathrooms. Their proposal lacks any kind of #s. My *ahem* successors/disciples on the board have made this a point AND asked for real #s on how many students this will actually serve.

    Why was I on a school board? Because I wanted to see exactly what kind of BS and irresponsible political spending was happening.

    1. This sounds to me like the school board was run by a bunch of DemocRATs since money is NEVER a consideration; except if a project is proposed by a Republican. Then, it’s as if the money is being stolen right out of their wallet.

  2. Sure George.

    On one hand, the continuous FAILED investigations against Trump put me in mind of signs. “XX days since the last investigation.”

    On the other hand, I wonder how the Left will freak when someday their candidate wins and gets sucked into harassing, futile, but neverending investigations? The Left is not the only player in this game and they HATE being held to their own rules.

  3. Poor Conway. His wife Kelly Ann has been getting too much and it challenges his manhood. Every president has the right to surround themselves with people who they trust. Vindeman and Sondlind were obviously not the right choice.

    1. George has no manhood. Kellyanne keeps it in a coffee can under the sink.

      What decent man would so humiliate his wife? That’s a rhetorical question.

      1. There SHOULD have been a clean sweep of ALL of Marxist #44’s parasites; especially the anti-American Muslims he personally appointed/hired as “advisers”. Hopefully Trump will get a new, bigger broom in early 2021 and will sweep the trash out of OUR Government.

  4. “He continued to argue that if Trump was impeached in the House for obstruction of Congress “then there should be no doubt that punishing witnesses for complying with subpoenas and giving truthful testimony about presidential misconduct should make for a high crime or misdemeanor as well.” Article

    Interesting point. It doesn’t necessarily take a “crime” to qualify for being impeached and since King Donald The Loser feels that he is above the law (high crime) and can literally get away with ANYTHING, a misdemeanor works for me.

    1. If you hate Trump you hate he U.S. Why do you hate the U.S.? Leave if you don’t like living in a free country. There are plenty of others that will take you in and let you live under there communist ways!

        1. YOU know I agree with Bobby 110% because I have told you many times exactly that which Bobby has suggested. I have repeatedly recommended Venezuela, North Korea or Cuba; any of which would be more fitting to your anti-American, Communism-loving agenda. OR are you afraid those Socialist/Communist Sh**holes wouldn’t provide the support you’ve become accustomed to here in the GREAT USA under President Trump?

          TRUMP/PENCE in 2020. Keep the Communists/Fascists (Nazi wannabes) OUT of American Government!

    1. Kellyanne may be stuck in what’s left of her marriage to that Trump-hating POS. They have 4 young, school age children who probably despise their father as much as most Americans do.
