George Conway Nails The One Charge That Will Sent Trump To Prison
During an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday, attorney George Conway suggested that Donald Trump’s attempts to hide the documents he took with him to his Mar-a-Lago estate could be the one that actually lands him in jail.
Conway’s remarks came during a segment on the myriad of criminal investigations surrounding the former president.
Asked about a report that special counsel Jack Smith is now looking into the former president’s fundraising off of his 2020 election loss, Conway also said there is a real possibility that could lead to mail and wire fraud charges.
Host Willie Geist then pivoted to the Mar-a-Lago documents investigation as the one he feels is a slam dunk for prosecutors.
“George, before we let you go, the Mar-a-Lago documents case, just based on what we heard yesterday, it’s clear that the special counsel Jack Smith is able to do two things at once,” Geist said. “Looking at January 6th and also looking at what happened down at Mar-a-Lago, how strong is your sense of the case building now against the former president there?”
“Well, my sense of this case has been almost since the date of the search warrant execution at Mar-a-Lago, that this case is the shortest distance between Donald John Trump and an orange jumpsuit,” Conway replied. “I still adhere to that view. It’s just very clear that he — I mean, if a quarter of what we’ve read is true, he obstructed justice, he was trying to avoid producing these documents. He lied to his lawyers about the status of the documents so they would, in turn, misinform the government, which is why Judge [Beryl] Howell in the District of Columbia held a crime-fraud exception, applied the crime-fraud exception to the attorney-client privilege.”
He added: “Therefore, Trump’s lawyers are witnesses against him. If he was moving documents around himself, that he was trying to hide them so he could show them off to people, well, you know, that’s obstruction of justice, even apart from the illegal retention of the documents, which he essentially stole from the American people because he just claimed they belonged to him when they didn’t.”
