Federal Agency Recommends Kellyanne Conway be Removed From Office

A federal agency is recommending that White House advisor Kellyanne Conway be removed from office.

The U.S. Office of the Special Counsel submitted a report to President Donald Trump detailing Conway’s alleged violation of the Hatch Act. 

That law bans federal employees from being involved in political activities while a member of the executive branch.

The counsel says she violated the Hatch Act several times by speaking out against Democratic candidates in her official capacity, both on social media and in TV interviews.

The White House says the accusation violates Conway’s constitutional rights to free speech and due process.

The White House also accused the office of being influenced by outside pressure.

Conway denies that she is in violation of the Hatch Act.

She blamed the accusation on outside groups working against her.
