U.S. Office of Special Counsel wants Kellyanne Conway 'removed from office'
As Sarah hillbilly Sanders announced her departure from the White House today, the independent federal agency U.S. Office of Special Counsel has asked that Kellyanne Conway be fired from federal service, as she has repeatedly violated the Hatch Act by disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity on TV and in social media.
The OSC officially made the 'highly unusual request' to T-rump early today, and the White House deputy press secretary Steven Groves fired back, saying the OSC was trying to stifle Conway's constitutional rights.
OSC special counsel Henry Kerner, a Trump appointee, described Conway as a “repeat offender,”
dating back to late 2017 when she publicly endorsed Roy Moore for the Alabama Givernor's race at least twice on television. Kerner fired off a letter to T-rump about this in early 2018. Conway has repeatedly endorsed Republican candidates throughout 2018, and has continued to do so in 2019 - continuous violations of the Hatch Act.
When questioned about repeatedly violating the Hatch Act by a reporter a few weeks ago, Conway responded, “If you’re trying to silence me through the Hatch Act, it’s not going to work. Let me know when the jail sentence starts."
White House counsel Pat Cipollone has asked the OSC to withdraw the report based on 'false claims' against Conway.
“OSC respects the White House Counsel’s office but respectfully disagrees with their position, and will not withdraw the report,” OSC spokesman Zac Kurz responded.
