Trump says he won't fire Conway over Hatch Act violations

Donald Trump and Kellyanne Conway

"I'm going to get a very strong briefing on it, so we'll see, but it seems to me to be very unfair". "I think she's a tremendous person, she's loyal, she's a great person".

The OSC report itself stated that in one February 19 interview on "Fox & Friends", Conway "insinuated that Senator Booker was "sexist" and a "tinny" "motivational speaker, '" and claimed Sen". It really sounds to me like a free speech thing. "They have tried to take away her speech and I think you're entitled to free speech in this country".

A report submitted to Trump found that Conway violated the Hatch Act on numerous occasions by "disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media".

"No, I'm not going to fire her", Trump told hosts Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt.

Trump said the recommendation is an attack on Conway's "right of free speech", adding that it is "not fair".

White House counsel Pat Cipollone said Conway and the White House were not given time to respond to the report.

Facts First: It's incorrect to suggest that enforcing the Hatch Act somehow violates someone's First Amendment rights.

"As a highly visible member of the administration, Ms. Conway's violations, if left unpunished, send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act's restrictions", Kerner wrote. "Her actions thus erode the principal foundation of our democratic system - the rule of law".

White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway looks toward U.S. President Donald Trump during a working lunch with governors on workforce freedom and mobility in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., June 13, 2019. "OSC's patently unreasonable demand for an overnight response, standing alone, shows that the Report was the product of a fatally flawed process".

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump falnked by campaign manager Kellyanne Conway waves to supporters following an address during election night at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York on November 9, 2016.
