George Conway Shreds Trump's Attack on Amash With Itemized Breakdown: 'You Never Stop Lying, Do You?'

George Conway, attorney and husband to White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, shredded President Donald Trump's attack on Rep. Justin Amash on Sunday with what could best be described as a "lie-by-lie" breakdown of the president's tweets.

After Amash became on Saturday the first Republican lawmaker to publicly declare that Trump had engaged in an impeachable offense while in office, the president fired back Sunday morning at the congressman with a series of angry tweets, where he called Amash a "loser" and maintained his own innocence.

"Never a fan of [Justin Amash], a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy," the president tweeted.

"If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, 'composed' by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump, he would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION...Anyway, how do you Obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!" Trump added in another post.

Hours later, Conway attempted to tear Trump's tweets apart by claiming the president lied on almost every point he made.

"You never stop lying, do you?," the attorney tweeted, alongside a reshare of Trump's attacks on Amash.

Conway flagged a series of quotes Trump's tweets — that the Mueller report was "son NO COLLUSION," that the special counsel had concluded there had been "ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION," that one can't obstruct "when there is no crime," that the "crimes were committed by the other side" as "LIES."

The only statement Conway flagged as "TRUE" was Trump's assertion that Amash had played "right into our opponents hands." Conway's reasoning? "[Y]ou seem to oppose justice and the rule of law, so, at least on this one, TRUE."

• “strong on NO COLLUSION” 👉LIE

• “and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION”👉LIE

• “how do you Obstruct when there is no crime”👉LIE to suggest you couldn’t and didn’t

•”the crimes were committed by the other side”👉LIE

Newsweek has reached out to Amash for comment but did not receive a response at the time of publication.

Amash offered some "principal conclusions" of special counsel Robert Mueller's report after he wrote on Twitter that he had read the full 448-page redacted document on Russia campaign meddling and possible obstruction of justice committed by Trump's administration and inner circle.

"Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General [William] Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller's report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report," the GOP lawmaker tweeted.

Barr provided Congress a summary of Mueller's report on March 24, nearly 48 hours after the special counsel officially finalized the probe, that said that investigation "did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election." On the issue of whether Trump obstructed justice, Barr said the special counsel's report neither exonerted nor indicted the president.

However, when Mueller's 448-page report, with redactions, we released almost a month later, it painted a more damning picture for Trump. Within the document, Mueller detailed at least a dozen instances in which Trump might have obstructed justice.

"We've witnessed members of Congress from both parties shift their views 180 degrees—on the importance of character, on the principles of obstruction of justice—depending on whether they're discussing Bill Clinton or Donald Trump," Amash wrote on Saturday. "Few members of Congress even read Mueller's report; their minds were made up based on partisan affiliation—and it showed, with representatives and senators from both parties issuing definitive statements on the 448-page report's conclusions within just hours of its release.
