'A bold step': George Conway explains why Trump 'should be worried' following Mar-a-Lago FBI search

When Never Trump conservative George Conway appeared on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday, August 9, the Republican attorney weighed in on the FBI executing a search warrant at former President Donald Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago in South Florida. Conway, one of Trump’s most vehement critics on the right, stressed that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland is known for acting with caution — and that a raid on an ex-president’s home isn’t something he would take lightly.

“It’s a bold step,” Conway told “New Day” hosts Brianna Keilar and John Berman. “[Merrick Garland is] not someone who does things rashly. So, you have to tend to conclude there is something there behind the curtain that would surprise us or shock us or something.”

Keilar asked Conway, “How seriously should Donald Trump be taking this, do you think, George?”

Conway, speaking from Ventnor City, New Jersey, responded, “I think any time the Federal Bureau of Investigation comes to your house early in the morning and knocks on the door and starts rummaging through your home — and with a list of things they’re specifically looking for — you should be worried.”

The attorney also said of Garland, “He truly believes, as he has said repeatedly, that no one is above the law. And so, this is an example of that.”
