Kellyanne Conway's Husband Swipes at Trump on Twitter

In his first tweet at 3:25 a.m., Trump said, "People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!".

"These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won't help OSG [Office of the Solicitor General] get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters".

The Department of Justice isn't able to use White House press secretary Sean Spicer's favorite response to reporters' questions about President Trump's more questionable tweets: "The tweet speaks for itself".

NY lawyer George T. Conway III says Trump's Monday tweets taking aim at the Justice Department "may make some ppl feel better", but won't help win a majority in the Supreme Court. "And to assert their coequal role in upholding the Constitution".

George Conway last week said he was removing himself from consideration for a Justice Department job. The Justice Department has repeatedly tried to distance Trump's comments as President and during the campaign from its case looking to lift a legal ban against his executive order.

Conway was responding to a Monday morning presidential Twitter rant in which Trump criticized his own Justice Department for revising his "travel ban" on people from several predominantly Muslim countries.

He also, though, doubled down on his initial point: "Every sensible lawyer in WHCO [White House counsel's office] and every political appointee at DOJ [would] agree with me (as some have already told me)", he wrote. The pt can not be stressed enough that tweets on legal matters.

In an email, Conway confirmed that he wrote today's tweet, but declined to elaborate on his views in an interview.

The White House says President Donald Trump will not assert executive privilege to try to block testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey. So far, the second version of the travel ban has been argued in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th Circuit. "I'm not going to allow on the day and a half after terrorists did it, whether they're ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed, they're savage murderers, it's an evil slaughter as the president said last night, I'm going to not let him be seen as the perpetrator here".
