Trump conservative critics launch PAC to fight reelection
(AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)NEW YORK, NY – A small group of President Donald Trump's fiercest conservative critics, including the husband of the president's own chief adviser, is launching a super PAC designed to fight Trump's reelection and punish congressional Republicans deemed his “enablers." In an interview, George Conway said he encouraged the new super PAC to involve Anonymous, an unnamed Trump administration official who authored a recent book warning the public against Trump's reelection. Roughly 9 in 10 Republican voters approved of the president's job performance and have all year, according to Gallup. While there is no concrete road map, Weaver said the organizers plan to fight the president's reelection in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin along with Arizona and North Carolina. “If he’s not removed by the Senate, he needs to be removed at the ballot box,” he said of Trump.
George Conway donates to Trump's 2020 GOP rival Joe Walsh
(CNN) - Conservative lawyer George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has donated to one of President Donald Trump's Republican rivals: former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh. Federal Election Commission filings show that Conway donated $5,600 on Aug. 30 to Walsh's longshot bid to grab the Republican nomination from Trump. Walsh raised about $129,000 between August through September -- compared to Trump and the Republican National Committee's $125 million haul during the July-to-September fundraising quarter. The former Illinois congressman revealed last month to CNN that Conway is informally advising his 2020 campaign. Bill Weld and former Rep. Mark Sanford of South Carolina have also mounted challenges to Trump in 2020.
George Conway: White House letter on impeachment proceedings 'trash'
WASHINGTON, D.C. - George Conway, husband to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, slammed the White House's letter refusing to cooperate in House Democrats' impeachment inquiry as "an excuse to prevent evidence, damning evidence, from reaching the public." "The thrust of (the letter) is that there are some kind of constitutional obligations that the House has failed to meet that therefore render its impeachment inquiry illegitimate and unconstitutional, which is complete nonsense, because all the Constitution says is that the House has the sole power over impeachment," he added. The accusation from Conway -- a vocal conservative lawyer who's often at odds with his wife's boss, President Donald Trump -- come as the White House looks to put pressure on House Democrats for choosing not to hold a vote to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry. A vote is not officially needed because the Democratic caucus already has more legal authority compared to past impeachment inquiries. He added that the letter "virtually guarantees" that Trump will be impeached, calling it "a disgrace to the country, a disgrace to the presidency, and a disgrace to the legal profession."
