The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) sent a letter to the White House on Thursday recommending that presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway be removed from federal service following multiple violations of the Hatch Act.
In a 17-page report, the federal watchdog accused Conway of breaking the law that bars federal workers from engaging in elections in their official capacity. The OSC called on President Trump to oust Conway “immediately,” saying she broke the law multiple times “by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The White House issued its own 11-page letter blasting the OSC’s findings, with counsel Pat Cipollone arguing that Conway’s media appearances and tweets are not covered by the law. He also accused the federal watchdog of violating Conway’s due process rights by giving the White House inadequate notice to respond to the office’s specific findings.
