George Conway, a conservative attorney and husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, wrote a column for the Washington Post on Monday to argue that Donald Trump should be held accountable for firing two impeachment witnesses.
Conway noted that shortly after acquitted, Trump used his power to fire Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and former European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland for testifying at the impeachment inquiry.
Conway suggested that Trump ought to be impeached again for his recent actions.
“If this were a criminal investigation, and Alexander Vindman and Sondland had given their testimony to a grand jury, this Friday Night Massacre could have been a crime,” he writes. “At the very least, it ought to be impeachable: If Richard M. Nixon was to be impeached for authorizing hush money for witnesses, and Trump himself was actually impeached for directing defiance of House subpoenas, then there should be no doubt that punishing witnesses for complying with subpoenas and giving truthful testimony about presidential misconduct should make for a high crime or misdemeanor as well.”
While Democrats likely won’t launch a second impeachment inquiry over the firings of two impeachment witnesses, Conway says it’s only a matter of time before Trump does something even more egregious.
“He’ll only get worse,” Conway concludes. “Narcissistic leaders such as Trump always do. As we’ve now seen, his rage leads to retribution and misconduct, which beget more criticism, and more investigation, and even more rage, retribution and misconduct. Over and over again.”
