George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, is on the Anti-Trump Train.
He chastised Senate Republicans on Wednesday because they blocked any new evidence or witnesses for being presented in the impeachment trial. He says the reason for them not wanting to present new evidence is that they know Donald Trump is "guilty".
Or maybe it is that they know the whole trial is just farce and ready to put an end to it.
“What are they afraid of?” Conway asked on CNN, “They going to hear evidence they won’t like? That’s the thing that I find most disturbing about it, is they don’t want to hear the evidence because they know the truth. They know he’s guilty. And they don’t want to hear the evidence because they don’t want the American public to see it too.”
The Hill reports:
Conway’s comments followed a day in which Senate Republicans tabled several democratic amendments that would have compelled the White House to turn over documents related to delayed Ukrainian military aid. The Senate passed an organizing resolution that stipulates that new witnesses and documents will be considered after opening arguments and a 16-hour question and answer period for senators.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) contended that all the documents and witness requests that Democrats put forward “could be dealt with at the appropriate time.” But Democrats have raised fears that the upper chamber could take part in a “cover up” by denying evidence.
They have specifically called for former national security adviser John Bolton and acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify in the trial.

“This is a moment of reckoning, not just for the country and for the rule of law and the Constitution, it’s a very specific day of reckoning for the Republican senators and the Republican Party in general,” Conway added, “Are they going to stand for lies instead of truth? Are they going to stand for gaslighting instead of reality? Are they going to do the bidding of this one man? That’s what this is about.”
