George Conway III is an attorney who once participated in Ken Starr's investigation and the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. He once was on the short list for Attorney General in the Trump administration thanks to his wife Kellyanne's relationship with President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.
But that job went to Jeff Sessions and over time Conway's opinion of his wife's boss at the White House—where Kellyanne serves as counselor to the President—soured. Eventually Conway began to express his concerns on Twitter.
Subtle comments at first eventually led to tweets that spelled out the legal and moral issues Conway saw within the Trump administration and with the President himself. Now Conway says intervention is warranted.
On Wednesday, in a series of tweets Conway pleaded his case in which he concluded:
"a serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind."
But let's start at the beginning of the thread, in which Conway posted a video of Trump lying in an interview.

Conway then explained what makes the President's lies go from slips of the tongue to an issue needing a thorough review.

Conway then raised the issue of a recent appearance by Trump where the statements he gave were characterized as "incoherent" and "rambling."

Conway then points out a major issue with the President's lies.
Most of the time they serve no purpose for the President. Or worse, the obvious lies actually hurt him.
Again, pathological. It’s not rational, because it’s a lie that no reasonable person would believe. It undermines h… https://t.co/NZB5J48r8V— George Conway (@George Conway) 1552523031.0
He then points out the sheer number of lies told by Trump. The number is so great several organizations recognized early in his campaign that his lies would be a major story of his presidency and began tracking them.
But these are just two of ... how many examples? Hundreds? Thousands? Is it possible to count? At any level of gov… https://t.co/nuMH4Vlfsf— George Conway (@George Conway) 1552523114.0
In the end, Conway concluded that no matter what happens with the multiple investigations into the Trump campaign, administration, Foundation and Organization, an inquiry into the President's mental stability was warranted.
Whether or not impeachment is in order, a serious inquiry needs to be made about this man’s condition of mind.— George Conway (@George Conway) 1552523150.0
People agreed with Conway's case for a mental health check for the President.
@gtconway3d Keep it up. Can’t believe he’s stayed in power so long. Why? Republicans afraid of something.— MaggieMay (@MaggieMay) 1552540160.0
While many pointed to a complicit GOP as culpable.

Conway is not the first to question the President's mental state or call out his near constant lying. However despite multiple people raising the alarm, Congress has yet to act and they may never at all.
