George Conway, lawyer and husband of Kellyanne Conway, a White House advisor, criticized President Donald Trump's attack on Rep. Justin Amash on Sunday, with what one could better describe as a breakup. lies "President's tweets.
After Amash became the first Republican legislator on Saturday to publicly declare that Trump had committed an impenetrable offense during his tenure, the president fired back Sunday morning against the MP with a series of angry tweets, in which he called Amash of "loser" and maintained his own innocence.
"Never fan of [Justin Amash], a slight total that opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and politics just to get his name through a controversy, "said the President tweeted.
"If he actually read the partial Mueller report," composed "of 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump, he would see that he was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION … whatever that was. however, how do you obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed on the other side? Justin is a loser who unfortunately plays in the hands of our opponents! Added Trump in another article.
A few hours later, Conway attempted to separate Trump's tweets by claiming that the president had lied on almost every point he had raised.
"You never stop lying, do not you?" Said the lawyer on Twitter, along with a redistribution of Trump's attacks on Amash.
Conway reported a series of quotes in Trump's tweets: Mueller's report was "his son, NO COLLUSION," according to which the special attorney had concluded that there had been "finally, NOT D & # 39; 39; OBSTRUCTION, "that it was impossible to obstruct" when there is no crime ". that "crimes were committed by the other party" as a "lie".
The only statement that Conway called "TRUE" was Trump's assertion that Amash had played "in the hands of our opponents". Conway's reasoning? "[Y]You seem to oppose justice and the rule of law, so at least on this point, TRUE. "

Newsweek contacted Amash for comments but did not receive a response at the time of publication.
Mr. Amash presented the "key findings" of the report of special advocate Robert Mueller after writing on Twitter that he had read the fully redacted 448-page document on the Russian campaign's interference. and the obstruction of justice committed by the Trump administration and his entourage.
"Here are my main conclusions: 1. Attorney General [William] Barr deliberately distorted Mueller's report. 2. President Trump's behavior was irreproachable. 3. Partisanism has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress read the report, "tweeted the GOP legislator.
Barr provided Congress with a summary of Mueller's report on March 24, nearly 48 hours after the special advocate officially opened the investigation, claiming the investigation "did not concluded that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with this campaign had conspired or coordinated Russia's efforts. " influencing the 2016 presidential election. "On the question of whether Trump was obstructing justice, Mr. Barr said the special advocate's report had neither exonerated nor charged the president. .
However, when Mueller's 448-page report, with the redactions, which we published almost a month later, he painted an even more damning picture for Trump. In the document, Mueller detailed at least a dozen cases in which Trump could have obstructed justice.
"We've seen congressional members from both sides change 180 degrees – about the importance of character, about the principles of hindering the maintenance of justice – whether they discuss Bill Clinton or Donald Trump, "wrote Amash on Saturday. "Few members of Congress have even read Mueller's report; They made their decision on the basis of their partisan affiliation – and it appears that representatives and senators from both parties issued definitive statements on the report's findings of 448 pages just hours after publication.
