George Conway, the husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, began purging his Twitter feed of posts and reweets critical of President Donald Trump. When asked why, he responded simply "no reason."
George, a Washington lawyer originally considered for multiple Justice Department posts early in the formation of the Trump administration, became a frequent indirect critic of Trump on Twitter. George previously confirmed @gtconway3d is his personal Twitter account.
Among the Tweets deleted was one referencing replacing the resigned Hope Hicks as White House Communications Director was more difficult because of the employer.
George's wife is reportedly on the shortlist to fill the vacant position.
Pundits and observers accused Mr. Conway of trolling the president for an unknown reason, although some did speculate. George denies the trolling claim.

Still, despite the denial, he uses his Twitter account to indirectly or directly comment on Trump's decisions. The short quips in relation to shared content, the content itself, and retweeted comments from others is rarely flattering to the president.
He also shared an article about potential obstruction of justice related to promising future pardons to influence testimony in ongoing investigations.
Conway referred to one Trump legal team decision to openly discuss the possibility of pardons to mitigate what testimony might be given as "flabbergasting".
All Tweets critical of Trump have not been removed yet by George Conway. It is unclear if they will be since it is unclear why they were posted and some deleted.
All that is clear is Kellyanne Conway is in an uncomfortable position between the two biggest men in her life.
