"Drivel." That's what George Conway, Kellyanne's husband, called Giuliani’s assertion that Trump can't be subpoenaed.
Conway has also emailed people who've written things critical of Trump and suggested improvements in their arguments, Politico reports. https://t.co/rEI68tor8F

Some of the shine seems to have worn off over the last twelve months, quite possibly because Conway is a good enough lawyer to understand just how much legal jeopardy the Oval Office Occupant is putting his minions into:
… Friends say he was proud of Kellyanne, the longtime Republican operative who was finally running the show, and the evening routine allowed him to grab some one-on-one time with his busier half. On election night, he cried, and noted to other campaign aides that as the first female campaign manager of a winning presidential bid, his wife had made history.
Over the past year, however, since Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed by the Justice Department, George Conway has become a man in turmoil. A serious, conservative attorney who believes in the rule of law, he has been torn, people who know him say, between the loyalty he feels toward his wife and an assault on his profession and his ideals that he did not anticipate when he cheered on election night—delivered by her boss.
During that period, he has walked away from a powerful job running the Justice Department’s civil division, where he would have served as one of the administration’s top lawyers. And he has become a Twitter phenom—tweeting and retweeting critiques of the president and support for the Mueller probe that his wife’s employer calls a “witch hunt.” Many in the White House have noticed, including Kellyanne and, according to multiple administration officials, the president himself.
The pushback coming from inside the house of Trump’s lead cable-news defender has become one of Washington’s favorite family dramas. In “Conway versus Conway,” George attacks the president, or seems to defend the Mueller probe, while Kellyanne puts her own credibility on the line to defend Trump, who has escalated his verbal assaults on the Russia inquiry and this week even demanded an investigation of the investigation…
Not often I find myself in sympathy with a semi-professional Repub, but I’d be happy too if George’s spouse comes to her senses and leaves Trump behind. If she drops out of politics entirely (if only because the Trump taint has made her unemployable), that wouldn’t damage her status to me, either.
