Republican attorney and husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, George Conway, called for a “serious inquiry” into President Trump’s mental state in a lengthy tweetstorm Wednesday night.
“Whether or not impeachment is in order, a serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind,” Conway wrote, labeling Trump as a “Summa Cum Liar.”
Conway began his Twitter thread by sharing a video of the president falsely claiming that Paul Manafort’s sentencing Judge, Amy Berman Jackson, completely exonerated his former campaign chairman on the question of collusion with Russia.

“Have we ever seen this degree of brazen, pathological mendacity in American public life?” Conway asked.
“But instead he lies about it. He denies what the world can see on videotape. Even his donors and supporters wonder, what is wrong with him? Why would be feel compelled to tell such an absurd lie?” he wondered.

“But one lie on any subject is never enough for Donald Trump. So he next tells a different lie,” he continued. “Yes, I omitted a word, but to save time. A ridiculous assertion, of course—he really said ‘Tim Apple’ instead of ‘Tim Cook of Apple’ to save a third of a second?”
“This man who recently gave [an] incoherent, rambling two-hour-plus speech, this man not known for economy of words? Another absurd, crazy lie. Pathological,” Conway wrote.
“And now, another one. The judge says, in open court, that Manafort’s lawyers’ ‘no collusion’ ‘mantra’ was patently ridiculous because it was irrelevant to the charges at hand—not that there was no proof of collusion, just that whether there was or wasn’t was irrelevant to the proceedings at hand,” he noted.
“And yet he lies again — a blatant lie — about what the judge said in open court,” Conway said.
“Again, pathological. It’s not rational, because it’s a lie that no reasonable person would believe. It undermines his credibility. It’s self-defeating,” he continued.
“But these are just two of … how many examples? Hundreds? Thousands? Is it possible to count? At any level of government in this country, in any party, have we ever seen anything like this?” he asked. “It’s beyond politics. It’s nuts. It’s a disorder.”
“Whether or not impeachment is in order, a serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind,” Conway concluded.
