George Conway cracks there's really only 1 way the GOP will turn on Donald Trump

George Conway thinks he knows how to get Republicans in the Senate to finally turn on and impeach President Donald Trump.

And it involves a secret ballot in the Senate on conviction and a trap door.

“I think if they could push a button secretly and just sort of like, it would be a trap door and he’d just fall in and you wouldn’t hear from again, absolutely,” the attorney joked in a new episode of former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s podcast “Stay Tuned With Preet.”

“[...] from what I’ve heard, people would just wish he’d go away,” added Conway, who despite being married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has in recent years become a thorn in the side of the Trump administration.

In the wide-ranging interview, Conway predicted the likelihood of Trump’s impeachment is “pretty much 100%”, gave Attorney General Bill Barr an “F” grade and lamented the lack of a voice of reason within the GOP.

He also took aim at the people who continue to serve and support Trump, remaining silent in face of things they disagree with.

“It’s one of the mysteries to me about this era,” Conway explained. “Now, I get there are people who are not in a position to say or do anything there because they’re junior or they’re not in a financial position of comfort. They’re vulnerable in some fashion. But there are people whose livelihoods don’t depend on this.”

“There are people, for example, who are no longer running for reelection in Congress. There are people who are independently wealthy. There are people who can just go back to the private sector,” he continued.

“Instead of making all these political calculations, although I think the calculation they should be making is he’s going to be gone at some point and there’s going to be a reckoning and history isn’t going to be kind to people who said nothing or stood up for Trump,” he added.
