George Conway said Trump is threatening to incite violence if he gets indicted: 'It's just like January 6 all over again'
- George Conway accused former President Donald Trump of threatening to incite violence again.
- Conway said he's acting like he's "being persecuted for no valid reason" in relation to Mar-a-Lago.
Conservative lawyer George Conway said former President Donald Trump is inciting violence by telling millions of people that he's "being persecuted for no valid reason" in relation to the Mar-a-Lago probe.
Conway, when asked by CNN in Friday interview if he would characterize Trump's response as a "threat," said that he would.
"Yes, absolutely," Conway said. "I mean he's basically saying, 'What a nice country you have here, too bad if something would happen to it.'"
Last month, the FBI executed a search warrant at the former president's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida and recovered several boxes containing classified records that Trump took with him from the White House once he left office, according to the court records made public.
The search unearthed more than two dozen boxes containing some "11,000 documents and 1,800 other items from the office and storage room," according to court filings. Some of the boxes were distinctly marked as "top secret," Insider's Sonam Sheth reported.
Some of those materials include private and potentially sensitive documents like medical, tax, and accounting records, the court said.
Recently, Trump said there would be "big problems" if he were indicted in relation to the probe.
Conway compared the remarks to the Capitol riot, which resulted in several deaths and injuries. Over a year later, at least 910 people have been charged by federal prosecutors.
"It's basically January 6 all over again," Conway told CNN. "He's denying inciting violence but the fact of the matter is he is inciting violence because ... he's convinced millions of people that he is being persecuted for no valid reason, when in fact, he knows and he's terrified about the fact that he's been caught red-handed stealing government documents of the highest, highest security nature."
"By perpetrating that lie to the American people, he is absolutely encouraging people to engage in violence," Conway added. "There's just no question about it."
