A conservative Republican attorney married to President Trump’s senior White House advisor just posted a viral tweet mocking Rudy Giuliani’s bombshell admissions to Hannity last night on FOX.
Republican lawyer George Conway became famous by winning the landmark case Clinton v. Jones, thereby setting the legal precedents currently bedevilling President Trump today. The court agreed with Conway’s arguments that no president should be above the law.
Last night, Rudy Giuliani told a live national television audience that the President knew about election time hush money payments, called it “all legal” as a use of personal funds for the campaign. Even a first-year lawyer could go to the Federal Election Commission’s website to learn that Giuliani was wrong, and that is exactly what George Conway tweeted about.

His wife, Kellyanne Conway is the originator of the infamous “alternative facts” phrase and has spent the past two years carrying water for the President, but George Conway has refused to accompany her up the hill.
He dropped out of consideration for the high-ranking Department of Justice job of Solicitor General last year, while she remains a mouthpiece for the administration.
Soon after dropping his name from consideration, the GOP attorney began posting sarcastic tweets quietly, and eventually openly mocking the Trump administration.
But because Conway’s wife is more famous, the media didn’t catch on quickly, until late March when his posts made headlines for sending up to 100 mocking tweets in the prior month alone.
After the reports, George Conway pruned his twitter feed, but events pushed him back over the edge quickly thereafter.
Ten days later, Conway made headlines with another dry tweet citing Department of Justice regulations governing when an attorney can be raided by law enforcement when President Trump public protested over the FBI’s raid of his attorney Michael Cohen.
Now, George Conway’s tweet about the deep trouble facing both President Trump and Cohen has gone viral with over 16,000 reactions in just 5 hours.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump will probably face more than just federal election law criminal charges if what Rudy Giuliani said is correct. Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti says that Giuliani described a serious, potentially criminal Patriot Act violation and NBC just revealed that the pair had their phone calls at the White House intercepted.
It has only been 17 hours since President Trump hired top-notch impeachment defense lawyer Emmett Flood, and Rudy Giuliani’s casual admissions of criminality has made it certain that Flood is going to have his hands full for the next few weeks.
