George Conway accuses Donald Trump of witness tampering
George Conway, husband to Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, accused President Trump Monday of violating witness tampering laws.
During a Twitter tear on the Mueller investigation, Mr. Trump cheered on former campaign adviser Roger Stone for resisting to work with the special counsel’s team.
″ ‘I will never testify against Trump.’ This statement was recently made by Roger Stone, essentially stating that he will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories about ‘President Trump,’ ” the president tweeted, “Nice to know that some people still have ‘guts!’ ”
Mr. Conway, a vocal critic of his wife’s boss, shared the tweet and added, “File under ’18 U.S.C. 1503, 1512.′ ”
The two laws Mr. Conway referred to regarded influencing jurors and witness tampering, respectively.
In addition to potential collusion with Russia, the special counsel’s team is reportedly looking into a possible obstruction of justice case against Mr. Trump, part of which would focus on his Twitter feed.
