Nancy Pelosi approved this awful plan to put Kellyanne Conway in jail
Democrats have declared total war on Donald Trump and his key advisors.
And Americans should prepare for this fight to get even uglier.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi approved this awful plan to put Kellyanne Conway in jail.
House Democrats are launching one politically motivated fishing expedition after another.
The latest example is the House Government and Oversight Committee subpoenaing Kellyanne Conway to answer concerning the outrageous recommendation of the Office of Special Counsel that Donald Trump should fire her for criticizing Democrats running for president.
President Trump directed her to ignore the subpoena and now Democrats on the committee plan a vote to hold Conway in contempt.
The chairman of the House Oversight Committee on Monday said the panel will vote to hold White House counselor Kellyanne Conway in contempt of Congress later this month unless she agrees to appear to testify in a hearing.
Despite a subpoena to testify last month, Conway did not appear at the committee’s hearing Monday. Chairman Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, said the committee will hold a contempt vote on July 25, but implored Conway to testify before then to “help us avoid that situation.”
A letter sent to Cummings from White House counsel Pat Cipollone ahead of the hearing Monday said Conway would not appear at the direction of President Donald Trump.
“The President has directed Ms. Conway not to appear at the Committee’s scheduled hearing on Monday, July 15, 2019,” the letter said. “The long-standing principle of immunity for senior advisers to the President is firmly rooted in the Constitution’s separation of powers and protects the core functions of the Presidency.”
Critics contend this investigation is ridiculous and holds no basis in reality.
The Hatch Act was intended to keep career staff from engaging in political campaigns or behavior in their official capacity.
But Conway is a White House staffer with a communications portfolio.
She is asked questions about political topics and she should be able to give answers without fear of Deep State bureaucrats demanding the President fire her.
