Donald Trump's impeachment was set in motion after a whistleblower report came to light complaining about the inappropriate nature of Trump's July 25th call with Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine.

During that call, Trump leveraged the threat of withholding U.S. aid funding to Ukraine in order to get an investigation into alleged corruption of Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Appearing increasingly desperate to rewrite history, President Donald Trump took another stab at reframing his remarks to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on his infamous July 25 phone call.

It's the week after Thanksgiving, so most people are finished fighting with their families. That doesn't appear to be the case for the Conways.

George Conway has never been shy about his disdain for President Donald Trump, despite his wife—White House Counsellor Kellyanne Conway—being one of the most prominent voices in defense of the Trump administration.

However, George has kept his critiques targeted at Trump himself, leaving Kellyanne's role in the administration out of it.

That changed today.
