George Conway—husband of Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump—wasn't buying what Trump's lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was selling on Friday.

Giuliani downplayed the seriousness of Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen being sentenced to 36 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to multiple crimes, including campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.

"Nobody got killed, nobody got robbed… This was not a big crime," Giuliani told The Daily Beast this week. "I think in two weeks they'll start with parking tickets that haven't been paid."

Conway, a conservative lawyer, responded to a tweet with this quote by invoking the oath Trump took as president (with a little twist).

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, except where nobody gets killed or robbed," Conway tweeted.

But still, Giuliani—who, as mayor, promoted hard-line, controversial "broken windows" policing—was undeterred in his line of thinking that the crimes weren't so bad.

"It's campaign finance, my God," he told the Wall Street Journal in a story published on Friday. "Everybody pays a fine to the [Federal Election Commission] that is in politics. You can't follow all the rules."

Conway kept on tweeting criticism of Giuliani and Trump on Friday. Despite his wife working for the president, Conway has been a regular, vocal critic of Trump. The president, for his part, has jabbed at his counselor's husband by calling him "Mr. Kellyanne Conway" and saying he is just trying to get publicity for himself.

He recently tweeted: "Given that Trump has repeatedly lied about the Daniels and McDougal payments—and given that he lies about virtually everything else, to the point that his own former personal lawyer described him as a 'f****ing liar'—why should we take his word over that of federal prosecutors?"
