WH advisor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway just insulted President Trump as being the “dumbest and worst” president following making a prediction that Trump will be blindsided and betrayed by the Republican-dominated Senate in the impeachment inquiry recently launched by Nancy Pelosi and House Dems.
In order to impeach President Trump, the House and Senate would both have to reach a majority. While the House is led by Dems, the Senate is majority Republican.
So, while most agree that the impeachment attempt ain’t gonna work, Conway thinks Republican senators are going to turn on Trump if the impeachment vote reaches the Senate.
Anti-Trump political commentator Tony Schwartz first made the assertion on Twitter:
To which, Conway tweeted this in response:
Later on, George Conway agreed with another Tweet calling Trump foolish to attack the President, deeming him the "dumbest and worst" there ever was!
The Hill via MSN has more to say about the longtime Trump hating Conway's prediction:
George Conway, husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and a frequent critic of President Trump, on Wednesday predicted that Republicans in the Senate would break with the president and vote to remove Trump from office if the House votes to impeach. Conway tweeted that Republican senators would hide their decision to vote against the president until the last possible minute on the issue.
"I agree with this. There may be Republican senators who won't say a word until the moment they say 'guilty' when the roll is called at the end of an impeachment trial," he tweeted, responding to a political commentator who argued that Republican senators would vote to impeach the president because many "privately hate" Trump.
Conway has in the past called for Trump to be removed from office by members of his Cabinet via provisions in the 25th Amendment.
Newsweek also said:
George Conway, the husband of Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, on Wednesday predicted that Senate Republicans will turn on President Donald Trump if the Democratic-led House votes to impeach.
Political commentator Tony Schwartz first made the prediction after noting that oddsmakers are saying GOP senators won't break with the president.
"Oddsmakers say Trump Republicans senators won't vote to impeach Trump. I believe all bets are off. Most Republican senators privately hate him & his power over them," he tweeted. "If they believe, by banding together, they can push him out, I think there is a very reasonable chance they will."
In response, Conway backed the assessment.
"There may be Republican senators who won't say a word until the moment they say 'guilty' when the roll is called at the end of an impeachment trial," he tweeted.
Conway has frequently made headlines in recent months for his near-constant criticisms made against Trump on Twitter, despite his wife being one of the president's closest allies and aides. His remarks come a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House will proceed with a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump after the president was accused of seeking assistance from a foreign leader to probe a political rival.
