George Conway, the husband of counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, argued in a new opinion piece that President Donald Trump is unfit for office.
Reacting to the news that special counsel Robert Mueller cleared Trump of conspiring with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election, Conway penned an article for The Washington Post and said if Mueller was charged with investigating whether Trump was fit to serve, he would be guilty.
"If the charge were unfitness for office, the verdict would already be in: guilty beyond a reasonable doubt," he wrote.
Regarding Mueller's conclusion of no collusion, Conway said he wants to see Mueller's full report to explore what he sees are "links" between the Trump campaign and Russia.
"As matters turned out, and quite surprisingly, we now know from public sources that there were links aplenty," Conway wrote. "So who knows what we might learn on these subjects from Mueller's still-unreleased report?"
Mueller also looked at whether Trump obstructed justice during the multiple investigations that examined whether his campaign had improper ties to the Russians. Mueller, a former director of the FBI, could not reach a conclusion on that, a point Democrats have pounced on.
Conway was no different.
"If his report doesn't exonerate the president, there must be something pretty damning in it about him, even if it might not suffice to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt," Conway wrote. "And in saying that the report 'catalogu[ed] the president's actions, many of which took place in public view,' [Attorney General William] Barr's letter makes clear that the report also catalogues actions taken privately that shed light on possible obstruction, actions that the American people and Congress yet know nothing about."
Barr released a brief summary of Mueller's findings Sunday. He has pledged to release a more detailed report in the coming weeks.
