George Conway has ridiculed Donald Trump’s rapid turnaround in apologies over the FBI’s search of the former president’s Florida home for classified documents he may have brought there illegally after leaving office.
In a satirical essay published in the Washington Post titled “Trump Didn’t Take the Cookies. No. Never. Why ask?” the conservative lawyer pointed out the absurdity of Trump’s claims since the raid.
FBI agents were looking for White House documents improperly taken to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, some of which allegedly relate to nuclear weapons. Trump has since railed against the office, using the dispute to score political points.
He accused the FBI of corruption and claimed any damaging material found in his home was hidden there, but he also claimed he had already “declassified” any documents they might have found, among his other contradictory excuses.
In Conway’s article, writing as Trump, he insisted he had never had a cookie in his life, but also “gave you the cookies back when you first asked for them. time”.
