George Conway: Trump reimagines himself in ‘illegal’ election conspiracy

Conservative lawyer George Conway said Saturday that former President Donald Trump publicly admits he was involved in an “illegal” plan to reverse the election.

In a two-hour speech at the “Faith and Freedom” convention on Friday, Trump spoke at length about pressuring Mike Pence to reject the January 6, 2021 election votes cast for Joe Biden.

“I told Mike, ‘If you do this, you can be Thomas Jefferson,'” Trump told the crowd. “And then after it all happened, I looked at him one day and I said, ‘Mike, I hate to say this, but you’re not Thomas Jefferson.'”

It was Trump’s first speech after a series of hearings by the House Select Committee probing last year’s rebellion.

“From a prosecutor’s perspective, let him keep talking,” Conway told host Katie Fang on MSNBC. “He’s Basically Still Admitting He Put Pressure” [former Vice President] Mike Pence to do something that was completely illegal.”

“Someone should tell him that he has a right to remain silent and that anything he says can and will be used against him in court,” said Conway, husband of Kellyanne Conway, a former senior Trump adviser.

Trump also said he would “very, very seriously” consider granting pardons to defendants who stormed the Capitol if re-elected. Conway said that if he had that power, it could be seen as an attempt to “witness tampering.”

Conway said that’s what he did “a few years ago…forgive people,” Conway said.

Trump also complained in his speech that those arrested after the uprising were “absolutely destroying their lives and treating them worse than terrorists and murderers.”

He called the violence at the Capitol a “simple protest” that got out of hand, and falsely claimed that “most” of the rioters had been charged with nothing but a “parade through the Capitol”.

Conway also discussed Trump’s “deliberate blindness” about the illegality of planning to reverse a legitimate presidential election. “He understood, but he didn’t care,” Conway said.
