Walsh said in September that Conway is informally advising his presidential campaign, in an interview with CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield.
“I am honored to have his advice. I speak with him often. He’s a wonderful adviser,” Walsh said of Conway. “As far as any formal role with our campaign, I would only be so lucky as to have somebody like George Conway involved.”
Conway has also recently expressed his support for impeaching Trump, joining 15 other attorneys on an open letter calling for an “expeditious impeachment investigation” into Trump’s attempts to persuade Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenHillicon Valley: Biden calls on Facebook to change political speech rules | Dems demand hearings after Georgia election chaos | Microsoft stops selling facial recognition tech to police Trump finalizing executive order calling on police to use ‘force with compassion’ The Hill’s Campaign Report: Biden campaign goes on offensive against Facebook MORE’s son Hunter Biden.
