Earlier this morning, we reported that Kellyanne Conway, in a Thursday morning interview with “Fox & Friends,” may have violated the federal government’s ethics rules by promoting Ivanka Trump’s products.
“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff, is what I would tell you,” Conway said during a live video chat from the White House briefing room. “I’m going to give it a free commercial here, go buy it today.”
Then late this morning during his Walk & Talk on Facebook LIVE, Dennis Michael Lynch told viewers to stay tuned as he predicted the Democrats would make an attempt to take some sort of formal action against Conway. It didn’t take long for DML to be proven correct.
On Thursday afternoon, Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings of the House Oversight Committee requested an ethics review of the White House senior adviser to Trump.
Cummings penned a letter to Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, stating: “This appears to be a textbook violation of government ethics laws and regulations enacted to prevent the abuse of an employee’s government position.”
Director Noah Bookfinder of the liberal organization Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), also requested an ethics investigation into Conway. CREW claims Conway’s comments are “an apparent violation of federal law, ethics regulations, and other standards of conduct.”
