George Conway reveals why Trump’s lawyers kept him away from Mueller

George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, revealed on Thursday that one of President Donald Trump’s own attorneys told him that he would not let his client talk to special counsel Robert Mueller because he would inevitably perjure himself.

“He lies even when it makes no sense to lie,” Conway wrote. “As one of his lawyers once told me, Trump couldn’t be allowed to talk to Mueller because ‘he’d lie his ass off.'”

Conway said this as part of a broader discussion about Trump exhibiting multiple traits associated with narcissistic personality disorder, including “a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy.”

In fact, Conway believes that Trump’s pathological narcissism and dishonesty are the keys to understanding just about every one of his actions.

“To understand Trump, you have to look at everything through the prism of his narcissism,” he wrote. “Once you do that, pretty much everything makes sense.”
