But increasingly Conway has diverged from his wife's political views and now frequently and openly challenges President Trump.
Shortly after the President praised his BFF and former political advisor Roger Stone on Twitter, saying he had "guts!" for promising to never flip on Trump, Conway weighed in.
File under “18 U.S.C. §§ 1503, 1512” https://t.co/e4ZGVn1kJi

Law & Crime reports "18 U.S.C. § 1512 is, plain and simple, witness tampering."
"Conway is suggesting that Mueller might be looking at this tweet, as Mueller has apparently looked at other statements made on the president’s social medium of choice," Law & Crime adds.
Supreme Court lawyer, law professor, and former Acting Solicitor General of the United States Neal Katyal agrees with Conway:
George is right. This is genuinely looking like witness tampering. DOJ (at least with a nonfake AG) prosecutes cases like these all the time. The fact it's done out in the open is no defense. Trump is genuinely melting down, and no good lawyer can represent him under these circs https://t.co/zqFUoQvWTf

Conway, who once agreed and won a unanimous decision at the Supreme Court, was on Trump's short list to be Solicitor General, but asked to withdraw from consideration.
