George Conway rebukes Donald Trump for his ‘totally clears the president’ tweet

George Conway, husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, shared a searing rebuke to President Donald Trump’s erroneous claim that prosecutors’ sentencing recommendation for Michael Cohen ‘clears the President’ of any amount of wrongdoing.

What Trump may have been referring to being ‘cleared’ of includes allegations being investigated by the Department of Justice’s Special Agent Robert Mueller, which are separate from Cohen’s criminal case.

The Mueller investigation is focused on Russian meddling in the 2016 president election and whether Trump’s campaign colluded with the foreign government, to that end.

But federal prosecutors filed a sentencing recommendation memo for Cohen as part of his plea deal in his tax evasion and campaign finance violation criminal case.  

Robert Khuzami, the acting US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told a judge on Friday that Cohen should spend between 51 and 63 months in prison for his crimes related to trying to ‘influence the election from the shadows,’ including language that implicated Trump in the crimes under the moniker ‘Individual-1.’ 

And yet, bizarrely, Trump tweeted an hour after the document was filed in New York that it ‘[t]otally clears the President. Thank you!’ 

Knowing all of this, Conway quoted Trump’s tweet and wrote: 

‘Except for that little part where the US Attorney’s Office says that you directed and coordinated with Cohen to commit two felonies. Other than that, totally scot-free.’

As part of his deal, Cohen admitted that he arranged payoffs to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal to avoid October-surprise embarrassments for then-candidate Trump. 

The women have said they had sexual encounters with Trump while he was married to Melania Trump, which he has denied. 

Rather than ‘clear’ him of any alleged wrongdoing, the prosecutors’  sentencing recommendation memo for Cohen actually singled out Trump as being directly involved in those domestic efforts to silence those women.  

The memo from New York prosecutors identifies Cohen, Chairman 1 and Individual 1 – later identified in the document as Trump – attending an August 2014 meeting to figure out how to deal with potential negative press which could emerge from the women’s stories. 

The memo tells a story of Cohen working ‘in coordination with and at the direction of’ Donald Trump – by his own admission – to arrange for the National Enquirer to buy the rights to the two women’s stories and ‘kill’ them, preventing media exposure of their claims.

Former Playboy model Karen McDougal (pictured) and adult film star Stormy Daniels both claimed to have slept with Donald Trump in the past, but the government says Cohen coordinated with Trump to make sure the women were paid for their silence – in effect a pair of massive campaign contributions designed to save the election for Trump. These amounted to felonies for Cohen

Cohen ‘coordinated his actions with one or more members of the campaign,’ according to the memo, ‘including through meetings and phone calls, about the fact, nature, and timing of the payments.’

And as a result, ‘neither woman spoke to the press prior to the election.’ 

Condemning Cohen’s behind-the-scenes attempt to influence the 2016 election, Khuzami wrote in the memo that ‘[w]hile many Americans who desired a particular outcome to the election knocked on doors, toiled at phone banks, or found any number of other legal ways to make their voices heard, Cohen sought to influence the election from the shadows.’

‘He did so by orchestrating secret and illegal payments to silence two women who otherwise would have made public their alleged extramarital affairs with Individual-1,’ he added, referring to President Trump. 

‘Cohen, an attorney and businessman, committed four distinct federal crimes over a period of several years. He was motivated to do so by personal greed, and repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive ends,’ he wrote. 

Separately, Mueller’s office filed documents saying that Cohen lied to investigators to protect Trump regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

Picking up on this, Conway wasn’t alone in his mocking of the president, this time around, with many pointing out that he may have more to answer for he apparently thinks.

Conway has grown more and more vocal with his criticisms of Trump over the life of his administration, prompting Eric Trump to speak out against him, calling his open criticism a showing of ‘disrespect’ to his wife, Kellyanne Conway, who advises the president.

‘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,’ Eric Trump tweeted. 

‘@KellyannePolls is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.’

Kellyanne, herself, has called her husband’s posts ‘disrespectful,’ and made jokes about ‘the tweeting men in her life,’ in reference to both her spouse’s and the president’s unfiltered use of social media, according to the New York Times.

The president has also already been labeled as a major subject of interest, complete with the code name: Individual 1 in separate investigations.
