Kellyanne’s husband just accused Trump of committing a serious crime in Monday Twitter outburst

President Trump spent the majority of Monday his morning conducting some critically important “executive time” — or “watching television and tweeting angrily about the things he just found out from FOX and Friends” as the rest of us know it.

While the majority of his whiny outbursts were of the garden-variety Trump tweet (“Build the wall!”), two of the tweets stood out for the way that they dealt with two of his former associates and the implications for the larger Trump-Russia investigation.

The president slammed his longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, and publicly threw him under the bus for the myriad of crimes, frauds, and scams that Cohen committed over the years and called for him to serve “full and complete sentence.”

Of course, Trump made it clear that he only wants this because Cohen agreed to a plea deal and will cooperate with federal investigators probing not only the President’s alleged connections to Russian agents but likely also the myriad of crimes, frauds, and scams that Donald Trump stuck his grubby fingers into over the years.

On the other hand, Trump lavished praise on wildcard Republican operative Roger Stone, who is believed to have played a critical role in forging a connection with the Wikileaks transparency organization to coordinate the strategic release of emails stolen from the DNC and Clinton campaign staffers.

Somehow still incorrectly using scare quotes, the president congratulated Stone for having “guts” and for publicly refusing to testify against “President Trump.”

While that’s all very easy for Stone to say, the situations of the two men are very different. We imagine that Stone might be singing a very different song if he’s facing years in prison for decades of illegal grift and fraud like Cohen was — which, let’s be honest, Stone is almost certainly also is guilty of.

The husband of Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, prominent D.C. lawyer George Conway, took to Twitter to point out that the president’s tweets likely constitute witness tampering and the President is just digging himself into a deeper hole.

Supreme Court lawyer and former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal elaborated on Conway’s point and made it clear just how big a deal the president’s impulsive tweets really are:

Witness tampering is a very serious crime that carries up to twenty years in prison, and one that Trump is likely to commit several times over the next few months as he grows more and more desperate in his attempts to discredit the Mueller investigation.

It’s truly a delicious irony that the harder Trump tries to undermine the Mueller probe and discredit the seasoned prosecutor, the more he helps build a case against himself.
