Watchdog Agency Demands Kellyanne Conway Be Removed From White House For ‘Repeated Violations Of Federal Law’

Kellyanne Conway, one of President Trump’s most senior advisers, should be removed from office over “numerous” violations of the Hatch Act, a longstanding federal law barring most White House officials from engaging in political speech, a top government watchdog agency said Thursday.


The extraordinary recommendation, issued directly in a letter to Trump from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, describes Conway as a “repeat offender” who continuously used her official capacity as the president’s counselor to disparage Democrats in interviews and on social media.

“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,” the OSC letter states. “Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system — the rule of law.”
