George Conway: Trump’s position ‘stupifies’ as tax-return case heads to Supreme Court

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway’s husband, attorney George Conway, recently predicted that President Donald Trump would lose his ongoing bid to keep personal and business tax documents under seal.

In a new Washington Post op-ed, George Conway referenced a 2019 subpoena issued in Manhattan that sought Trump’s tax return information and additional records. Among the information the district attorney wants to see are Trump’s alleged hush payments to multiple mistresses.

Trump’s team has attempted to block the subpoena on the argument that a sitting president cannot be investigated for a crime, though multiple court rulings have since come down against that position.

With the case now set to be presented to the U.S. Supreme Court, Conway issued his take on a legal argument he says “stupefies” him.

“In essence: Authorities can’t investigate anything touching his personal affairs — including, ahem, payments to pornographic actresses — because he’s president,” Conway wrote. “Think of the logic: Not only does the president enjoy a personal constitutional immunity — his businesses do, too.”

He went on to explain that the U.S. Constitution “is concerned with protecting the presidency, not the person who happens to be president,” reiterating that “no one in this country is above the law.”

It is now the Supreme Court’s job “to teach that lesson once again — even if Trump will likely never learn it.”
