George Conway appears in Scarborough to report particularly damaging uncovered evidence


Some of us on this site now believe that fake election certificates submitted to Congress, repeat – submitted to Congress, now represent Trump’s most significant criminal exposure if he knew about the conspiracy (and try to imagine a scenario where he didn’t?). But the crime that calls for punishment and retribution is the attack on the Capitol, one that invites further violence in the future of this country unless it is prosecuted and nipped in the bud.

To that end, George Conway made an appearance on Joe Scarborough This Morning. Regardless of his feelings for George Conway or his personal and private life, one thing can be said without hesitation. He is one of the most powerful lawyers in Washington DC and he got this job for a reason. So when he talks it’s worth listening to – again, even if you hate the man – for two reasons. One, of course, very few can solve legal problems like Conway. And second, a much more subtle reason, people in his position “hear things” from others, maybe lawyers they mentored, maybe friends, maybe politicians they lobbied .

We’re never going to “hear” the things he “hears” backstage. But what’s being heard behind the scenes indicates how far someone like Conway might be willing to go in what he says on camera.

This morning on Morning Joe, Conway had a lot to say about the stories we hear about those 187 minutes:

“The criminal law aspect comes back to the question of Trump’s intent. He was sitting there in his private dining room or whatever near the Oval Office watching television, watching this for hours while people begged him, including his daughter, including his chief of staff, and probably people calling him on the phone to say something, do something, stop.

We hear that he looked at it with joy. He wanted this to happen. He wanted something to happen that would stop, delay, hinder – in the words of the statute – the execution of the laws of the United States that would transfer power from him to Joe Biden. This is one of the most telling pieces of evidence we have.

Some of us have publicly stated that it’s even more important to find something, anything – no matter how small, indicating that Trump knew there was some kind of plan to shut down Congress, d one way or another – although he didn’t know exactly how. But some of us are not George Conway:

Joe Scarborough chimed in to note how powerful that would be in a final argument:

You can almost hear it in a final argument against the president, not that there would ever be a final argument against the president because he seems to get away with everything.

But you could almost hear a closing argument from the president being part of this sedition sitting there watching happily and wanting the riot to continue and then the prosecution tells the jury [that] then they finally dragged him outside hours later to give a taped message to stop the rioters and arrest the seditionists, and the first take he wouldn’t say. They made him start over. He gives the rioters the second take, still won’t tell them to stop.

“It took them three times after an afternoon of bloodshed, after an afternoon of rioting police, of seditionists trying to actually commit an insurrection against the United States for the President of the United States United finally compliments them, but then tells them go home,

Joe is right, “he seems to get away with everything”, but we could note that there is some momentum building up over the past two to three weeks, which could indicate that the momentum is building. to change. It should no longer be taken for granted that Trump will not be prosecuted.

Conway then noted that these first takes will be in the National Archives and will be incredibly damning:

“It takes three takes, but only that, they didn’t trust him to do it live. They didn’t trust him to do it live because they were afraid of what he would say, so they threw in two takes and he got it half-straight on the third take.

Wait until you see these two takes, because they are undoubtedly preserved documents that were probably produced to the committee by the National Archives. It’s gonna be something. When these videos come out, I bet it’s going to be something.

It’s gonna be something. But at the same time – and Conway knows this – they’re going to have to demonstrate that everyone in this building knew Trump didn’t win the election. (And everyone in that building knew they didn’t). Maybe Trump convinced himself he won because he doesn’t lose, that would make him a loser. Everyone knew. To put the insurrection in its real context, you have to melt the MAGA spirit about the truth – hearing it from other MAGA, those who called it a theft. Only then will the MAGAs have to hear that they attacked the Capitol for a lie.
