    White House aide Conway violates law in TV interviews: government report

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Kellyanne Conway, one of President Donald Trump’s top advisers, violated federal law in two television interviews last year by using her White House position to weigh in on a political race, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said on Tuesday.

    In the interviews, Conway “impermissibly mixed official government business with political views about candidates in the Alabama special election,” the independent investigative agency said in a report submitted to Trump for “appropriate disciplinary action.”

    Such political activity violates the Hatch Act, which prohibits federal employees from using their official capacity to affect elections, although some other political activities are allowed.

    In a Fox News Channel on Nov. 20, Conway talked about why voters should not back Jones, and in a CNN interview on Dec. 6 she laid out why they should support Moore, the report said.

    The White House previously denied that Conway had advocated for Alabama votes to cast their ballots any certain way.

    How many people in this administration have been indicted, caught breaking the law or lying to the government (like Sessions)?

    That's not a rhetorical question, I've seriously lost count.

    We haven't had a Presidential Administration this corrupt since Warren G. Harding.

    True, but I have a feeling Mr. Mueller will be taking "corrective action" before too long. 🙂

    Agreed.
    Justice cannot arrive too soon.

    Violating the Hatch Act is a big freaking deal in Federal employment, and can get one fired, and, depending on how egregious the offense is, sooner, rather than later.

    Correction, we have not had the FBI go after law breakers in any administration like the Trump administration.

    Obama violated numerous laws. HIs fast and furious program of sending guns across the border was highly illegal, as was fixing primary elections like the ones in PA and CO so that they would have their guy win the DNC primary. And what about violating the War Powers Act by not notifying Congress within a certain length of time regarding the war in Libya?

    As I also recall, Obama tried to appoint cabinet members but none of them paid their taxes. That did not stop him from appointing one of them to the head of the IRS.

    Also you had the IRS targeting conservatives, something not investigated by the FBI. Just like Hillary, they destroyed the computers and evidence yet nothing was ever done about it.

    And what about people like Charley Rangel? He broke I don't know how many laws and had some 20 ethics violations yet nothing was ever done to him.

    The deep state control things now. Any opposition will be crushed and any friendly administration to the deep state will be free to have as much uncontrolled corruption as they so desire.

    There are so many violations by Obama I could not begin to list them all.

    A little Clozapine might help.

    And also, perhaps, a step out of your 2012 era "End of the World" bomb-shelter might re-oxygenate your thinking.

    Conspiracy theorizing used to be the realm of silly liberals. Funny how things have changed since 1980.

    Dream on liar. BTW, Fast and Furious was started under Bush under the name "Operation Gun Runner.' When the border guard was killed Obama had only been in office a few months. The guns used to murder this border agent were given to the murders long before Obama was in office. Try again Trumptard.
