A federal watchdog agency is telling the White House that adviser Kellyanne Conway has indeed violated the Hatch Act on multiple occasions and should be immediately fired, the Trump Regime responded with a gigantic middle finger.
The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) sent a 16-page report to Trump accusing Conway of breaking the law on numerous occasions “by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media” and calling on the president to oust her “immediately.”
“As a highly visible member of the administration, Ms. Conway’s violations, if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions,” special counsel Henry Kerner wrote to Trump. “Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system — the rule of law.”
The White House immediately rejected the office’s recommendation that Conway be fired, saying its findings are “deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process.”
The office, which is unrelated to former special counsel Robert Mueller of the Russia investigation, has never recommended that the White House fire an employee over Hatch Act violations.
White House spokesman Steven Groves accused the office of making a politically motivated decision to target Conway.
“Its decisions seem to be influenced by media pressure and liberal organizations – and perhaps OSC should be mindful of its own mandate to act in a fair, impartial, non-political manner, and not misinterpret or weaponize the Hatch Act,” he said in a statement.
Expect Henry Kerner to be fired well before Kellyanne Conway. And no, the White House doesn't give a damn about the Hatch Act or any other laws, because we no longer have rule of law in this country when it comes to the Executive Branch.
Conway is untouchable as Propaganda Secretary.
Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday snapped at a reporter after he asked her for comment on the U.S. Office of Special Counsel’s conclusion that she has repeatedly broken the law.
CNBC White House correspondent Eamon Javers reports that he asked Conway if she had any reaction to the report on her repeated violations of the Hatch Act that bars most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.
In response, Javers says Conway pointed at the door and said, “Can you leave please?”
Javers then asked her again — and she delivered a churlish response.
“I have no reaction,” Conway said. “Why would I give you a reaction?”
Nothing matters, and the media will continue to book Conway on news shows as if nothing happened, and Conway will continue to violate the Hatch Act.
