The husband of Kellyanne Conway, a White House counselor and former Trump campaign manager, came out and said that Trump should be charged with obstruction of justice and tampering with a witness.
George Conway, the husband of a key member of Trump’s team, responded to a tweet from the president with tweet of his own, claiming that Trump’s comments could be cause for an obstruction of justice and tampering with a witness charge.

Things are just getting weirder in Washington. Trump is fighting against Mueller’s special investigation, against the media and now he has to defend himself from the husband of one of his closest advisors.
George Conway is an attorney and some think he could be right. Neal Katyal was an attorney in the Obama administration said on Twitter that George is correct.
George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering. DOJ (at least with a nonfake AG) prosecutes cases like these all the time. The fact it’s done out in the open is no defense. Trump is genuinely melting down, and no good lawyer can represent him under these circs https://t.co/zqFUoQvWTf

Eric Trump, son of the president, took to Twitter to respond to George and the unique position that Kellyanne Conway is in.
Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all. @KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.

It is very strange that the husband of a White House advisor would be so public and open about his wife’s boss, but it’s Washington and anything can happen. The comments from George have to make for interesting conversations over dinner in the Conway house.
What do you think about Kellyanne Conway’s husband speaking out against her boss? Have you ever seen anything like this? Let us know in the comments below.
