George Conway, husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, took aim at President Donald Trump on Tuesday, with tweets that mocked his statements over the FBI raiding the office of his personal lawyer Michael Cohen, the New York Post reported.
After Trump sent a tweet that said "attorney-client privilege is dead," Conway tweeted a link to Justice Department guidelines for prosecutors about "searches of premise of subject attorneys."
"There are occasions when effective law enforcement may require the issuance of a search warrant for the premises of an attorney who is a subject of an investigation, and who also is or may be engaged in the practice of law on behalf of clients," the guidelines read.
In response to the raid, Trump tweeted that it was a "witch hunt." Conway retweeted an image from The Washington Post during President Richard Nixon's administration, where Nixon also used that term.
George Conway is a Yale-trained lawyer who withdrew in 2017 from consideration to head the Justice Department's Civil Division, the New York Post reported.
He has been critical of the president before. At the end of March, Conway quietly deleted a number of tweets that expressed criticism of Trump.
