Kellyanne Conway Accused Of Violating Federal Ethics Laws Again

Roy Moore was facing several accusations that he had inappropriate encounters with teenage girls when he was younger during last year’s Senate race

The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) - a government ethics agency that has no connection with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation - told the United States president Donald Trump that Ms Conway was in breach of ethics guidelines when she endorsed Republican candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama special election a year ago.

After House Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) demanded the president "take swift and serious disciplinary action against Ms. Conway", the White House responded to the OSC.

Shaub also dismissed pushback from the White House directed at the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), which announced that Conway had violated the Hatch Act twice in her official capacity.

Kerner pointed to interviews Conway did in November and December with CNN's "New Day" and Fox News Channel's "Fox & Friends" programs.

Even 2017 Oscars host, Jimmy Kimmel will be returning 'cos as his Oscar promo showed, he clearly has unfinished business. From the two stars' point-of-view, this gives them a chance at something like redemption after their unfortunate moment.

White House aide Kellyanne Conway is accused of violating ethics rules again. One interview cited in the report was aired on CNN while the other was aired on Fox News. Trump will decide what - if any - punishment she will receive.

White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley denied Conway did anything wrong, despite her own words in the Fox interview. Jones won the election in a rare victory for Alabama Democrats. "He's bad for property owners". In both interviews, Conway was introduced as "counselor to President Trump" and touched on similar points, including Jones' positions on taxes and "border security".

The White House is standing by Kellyanne Conway - despite growing opposition from Democrats - after the U.S.

The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees from using their official authority or influence in political work. He will be a vote against tax cuts.

Black Mirror renewed for season 5
Deadline confirmed Netflix renewed Black Mirror for season 5 about two months after the premiere of season 4 at the end of 2017. The series was created and written by Charlie Brooker and is executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.

The White House, however, said that Conway did not violate the Hatch Act. In her response, she "volunteered a comment about Doug Jones", Moore's opponent and the eventual victor of the Alabama special Senate election. The OSC's warning for Haley noted the Hatch Act does not apply to the president or vice president.

Responding to questions about Moore's sexual misconduct abusers, including a woman who claimed he had assaulted her when she was a teenager, Conway protested that 'nobody came forward before. Kerner's letter to the president refers Conway's violations to the president forhis "consideration of appropriate disciplinary action".

Conway came under fire for violating a different ethics provision a year ago, when she urged Trump supporters to purchase Ivanka Trump brand products.

Mr Nunberg's apparent defiance prompted comparisons with Susan McDougal, who spent 18 months behind bars after refusing to comply with a special counsel subpoena during the Whitewater investigation concerning Bill Clinton.

Trump to expand United States missile defense
