This morning, Donald Trump committed multiple felonies in plain view, with a series of desperate tweets aimed at sabotaging the Trump-Russia investigation. This evening, we learned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is about to drop (at least) three bombs on Trump’s head over the next four days. Now Eric Trump of all people is going off the deep end about it.
After Donald Trump went nuclear about Michael Cohen and Roger Stone on Twitter today, several legal experts and political figures pointed out Trump had just committed felonies. Among them was GOP operative George Conway, husband of Trump White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, who simply tweeted “File under “18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512.” This was in reference to the federal witness tampering statute. It was enough to set Eric Trump off.
Eric Trump ended up posting this unhinged tweet tonight: “Of all the ugliness in politics, the utter disrespect George Conway shows toward his wife, her career, place of work, and everything she has fought SO hard to achieve, might top them all. Kellyanne Conway is great person and frankly his actions are horrible.”
So even as Donald Trump is about to get a house dropped on him, and Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka Trump are facing the prospect of potentially being indicted and arrested at any time, Eric Trump seems to think that this is all somehow George Conway’s fault. And why is he suddenly so concerned about Kellyanne Conway’s marriage? Whatever. These people are gross, and many of them are about to be indicted.
