The woman who claims credit for Donald Trump winning Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania has violated the Hatch Act, which forbids federal employees from engaging in political speech while on duty.
That’s why Trump’s 2016 Campaign Manager, Kellyanne Conway, is defying a subpoena from the House Oversight Committee, which has a more than legitimate need to provide her with the opportunity to explain her unlawful actions.
“I’m doing this for the team,” she told Fox News (what other media outlet would she even think of saying that to? Breitbart?) (https://www.politico.com/story/2019/07/16/conway-taking-one-for-the-team-subpoena-1417021).
Associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith, who covers Congress for us, asked Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland) what he plans to do in the face of Conway’s obstinance.
Cummings told her that he will consult with the House Sergeant at Arms, who has law enforcement responsibilities; the Sergeant-at-Arms is armed every day with the silver and ebony Mace of the House, so maybe he could use mace.
Cummings also filed a bill to reinstutute the use of a jail or guard room in the basement of the Capitol, so that Conway could be confined there for her contumacy. The last time a guard room was used to keep a miscreant in the Capitol was 1889.
Immediately after her rant on Fox News, Conway met with Trump’s senior staff to plan Trump’s next racist tweet at AOC and her squad.
