The Hill reports:
George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, said Monday that it would “unquestionably be grounds for impeachment” if President Trump ordered former White House economic adviser Gary Cohn to pressure the Department of Justice to block the AT&T-Time Warner merger.
Conway’s remark comes after The New Yorker reported that Trump gave that directive to Cohn in the summer of 2017. Trump is thought to be opposed to the merger because Time Warner owns CNN, a news network Trump regularly derides and refers to as “fake news.”
If proven, such an attempt to use presidential authority to seek retribution for the exercise of First Amendment rights would unquestionably be grounds for impeachment. https://t.co/F1UANzeD2q
