Conservative attorney George Conway delivered a scathing assessment of the current GOP in the face of former President Donald Trump’s mounting legal woes, saying the party is “gone”, “basically needs to be destroyed” and “is actually destroying itself”.
“I don’t think there’s a way to fix that, and I think Trump will topple them,” Conway, a longtime critic of the former president, said on the latest episode of The Bulwark’s “Beg to Differ” podcast .
Republicans have become “addicted” to Trump’s lies, he argued.
“They live on these lies, the conservative media profit from these lies, the political advisers profit from these lies,” he continued. “Congressmen basically make a living selling lies to the American people in order to get donations and funding, they line their pockets or provide for their PACs and whatever necessities of life.”
“There’s no way out, because basically they’ve tied a certain number of people to these lies,” Conway added. “Ultimately there will be a core of the party that will eat itself up and the rest of the party will just fall away and become independent to the extent that it hasn’t already.”
