George Conway, husband to White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway, on Thursday described President Donald Trump as "unfit for office" and said he should be impeached because the president's "narcissism and sociopathy render him unable to comply with the obligations of his office."

"You don't need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows," Conway said in a lengthy essay in The Atlantic, "and you don't need to be a mental-health professional to see that something's very seriously off with Trump — particularly after nearly three years of watching his erratic and abnormal behavior in the White House."

Conway, a bitter Trump critic, explained in his essay — at more than 11,000 words — that the president's behavior goes far beyond rejecting the standard rules of politics, contradicting what the Founding Fathers had in mind when drafting the U.S. Constitution.

Though he does not mention his wife — they married in 2001 Conway drew an inference: "The president isn't simply volatile and erratic, however — he's also incapable of consistently telling the truth.

"Those who work closely with him, and who aren't in denial, must deal with Trump's lying about serious matters virtually every day."

Conway also argued that impeachment was a way for the House of Representatives to judge President Trump's performance before deciding whether to move forward on removing him from office.

"One of the most important judgments it must make is whether any identified breaches of duty are likely to be repeated," he said. "If a Senate trial comes to pass, that issue would become central as well to the decision to remove the president from office."
