"He's dumb as a rock and he made that [Mueller' investigation about himself by trying to interfere with it," Conway said, "and now he's making his legal situation worse in his fear of criminal liability in an investigation by essentially committing more crimes.
" "If you look at the Georgia statute it's pretty clear this is a crime," he added. However, Conway said, the president's history of dishonesty would make an insanity defense difficult to pull off.

It was revealed Sunday during an Axios report that President Donald Trump’s campaign is searching for what their campaign is going to be about or what their “message” is for November.
“Make America Great Again” doesn’t work because it assumes that Trump didn’t make America great while he ruled for four years. “Keep America Great” doesn’t work because Americans agree that the United States is on the “wrong track.” Much to his chagrin, it can’t be an economic message because the unemployment rate is still 13 percent with over 30 million people searching for jobs.

And Never Trump conservative attorney George Conway, in an op-ed for the Washington Post, slams McConnell’s assertion as “gaslighting of the highest order.” On March 31, Conway asserts, McConnell “added to the disgrace by claiming that impeachment distracted officials from dealing with the coronavirus.
