Kellyanne Conway's Ivanka Trump plug warrants discipline — Federal agency

Kellyanne Conway's Ivanka Trump plug warrants discipline — Federal agency

Conway declined to comment.

Host Mika Brzezinski says she will no longer allow senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". Shaub asked Passantino for a response by February 28.

In a controversial move Tuesday, reports said President Trump "unfollowed" Conway on Twitter, only to follow her back when people started to notice. "It's a wonderful line".

Conway's comments, "go buy Ivanka's stuff" came soon after Nordstrom dropped Trump-branded products from its stores because of "poor sales". "I hate shopping, and I'm gonna go get some on myself today", Conway said. "You can find it online".

"I note that OGE's regulation on misuse of position offers as an example the hypothetical case of a Presidential appointee appearing in a television commercial to promote a product", he wrote.

Following the resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn after it was revealed that he lied about the extent of his communications with Russian Federation, another one of Donald Trump's closest advisers could face disciplinary action: Kellyanne Conway.


It says the White House should "consider taking disciplinary action against her".

Breaking ethics rules for fun. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees, for instance, face a five-day suspension or termination for such a violation.

The OGE letter comes in response to a bipartisan inquiry into the incident the top ranking Republican and Democrat on the House Oversight Committee. (The ethics office's counsel could also weigh in on the matter himself.) In the end, though, it would be just a recommendation.

Shaub did not recommend what disciplinary action the White House should take.

On Monday, NBC's Matt Lauer told Conway that she wasn't making any sense during an interview on the "Today" show when she was attempting to spread, what Scarborough labeled as "misinformation". But forgive us if we don't hold our breath.

While the OGE's limited power means it can do little to censure Conway directly, the White House did announce she had been legally "counseled".
