George Conway Fact-Checks Donald Trump's 'Totally Clears The President' Claim

Kellyanne Conway’s husband had a fiery response to Trump's tweet.

President Donald Trump claimed Friday that he had been “totally” cleared following the release of the sentencing recommendations for his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

“Totally clears the President,” Trump tweeted. “Thank you!”

Conway’s post went over well on Twitter, including with comedian Kathy Griffin:
