Conway said: “It shows he knew what he was advocating was illegal. He admitted in front of everyone meeting the president. And what strikes me is not only his established criminality here. It was Donald Trump’s criminal intent that was established. On Monday, it was all about the facts. It was about how Barr testified that Trump didn’t care about facts. He had no interest in knowing the real facts. Donahue testified that whatever theory he rejected, there is no factual resistance from Trump. He just moves on to the next theory.

He continued, “Today was about Trump refusing to believe what people were telling him. That it was illegal. I think Judge Luttig in his written statement talks about Trump’s responsibility for his attempt to steal the 2020 presidential election. He makes the point in his written statement, he doesn’t talk about criminal, but he says: “Willful ignorance of the law is neither an excuse nor a defence.”

Conway added: “It was striking. At the end of the hearing, he says Trump is a clear and present danger. So talking about willful ignorance, and you combine it with what we saw on Wednesday, he’s talking about the criminality of Donald Trump.
