Kellyanne Conway accused of violating ethics laws-again

Kellyanne Conway accused of violating ethics laws-again

According to Shaub and several other ethics lawyers from both Republican and Democrat administrations, Conway very clearly violated the Hatch Act, a law that prohibits certain federal employees from stumping for political candidates while on the clock, while trying to influence the Alabama special election.

The OSC, lead by Henry Kerner, is a separate institution from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election.

This isn't the first time a federal oversight agency has recommended action against Conway, nor is it the first time the White House has instead elected to defend her, not discipline her.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley was reprimanded by OSC previous year for retweeting Trump's endorsement of a SC congressional candidate from her personal account.

During the interviews, Conway discussed Alabama's special election for U.S. Senate and expressed support for then-candidate Republican Roy Moore. Weak on borders. He is strong on raising your taxes.

A report on India Today said the accident took place in Palitana near Bhavnagar on the Rajkot highway on Tuesday morning. According to preliminary data, the driver of the vehicle lost control, causing the truck went off a bridge into a ditch.

Conway previously landed in ethical hot water in February 2017 for telling Fox News viewers to purchase products from Ivanka Trump's clothing line.

Brendan Fischer, a staff attorney at the Campaign Legal Center, told NBC News last month that Conway violated the act because she was "using her official authority to influence an election".

The White House Counsel's office had maintained Conway's remarks were part of a broader discussion on the prospects for the president's agenda, and were not intended as advocacy for or against a candidate.

"Kellyanne Conway did not advocate for or against the election of any particular candidate", the White House statement, attributed to deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley, says.

It also referred to a December 6, 2017, interview on CNN's "New Day" in which Conway, appearing again "in her official capacity", talked about why Alabama voters "should support Republican Roy Moore and not Democrat Doug Jones" in the special election. The OSC defined the restrictions of the Hatch Act and reported its investigative findings.

HTC also seems to be going to use Project Treble , a project that Google made, in order to bring fast updates to their users. Specs of the upcoming HTC U12 were leaked and we got to see what the device would be offering this year when it arrives.

This isn't Conway's first brush with ethics issues. "And none of you seem to want to say those nine letters, Doug Jones, that God forbid people find out who he is and who he would be in the Senate, so the President had to go out and do it for you".

Norm Eisen, who served as the top ethics official for former President Barack Obama, tweeted on Tuesday that the president's dismissal of Conway's latest violations would constitute crossing an ethical "redline". The President must take swift and serious disciplinary action against Ms. Conway.

The White House, however, said that Conway did not violate the Hatch Act. Kerner's letter to the president refers Conway's violations to the president forhis "consideration of appropriate disciplinary action". "Anything else sets a bad example".

The president's right-hand-man and social media director has already been reprimanded for tweets that the watchdog found interfered with an election.
