“Today, the Committee was scheduled to hear testimony from #KellyanneConway, Counselor to the President, about her repeated violations of federal laws.” -Chairman @RepCummings
“This is the second time in three weeks our Committee has attempted to obtain her testimony. We invited her to appear voluntarily at a hearing on June 26, but she refused.” oversight.house.gov/news/press-rel…
“The Committee then voted to authorize a subpoena to compel her to testify here today. In defiance of that subpoena, Ms. Conway is again refusing to appear.” oversight.house.gov/news/press-rel…
“Since Ms. Conway joined the White House in January 2017, she has repeatedly and flagrantly abused her position of trust.”
#TheHatchAct prohibits federal employees from using their official positions for partisan political purposes. The law ensures that the federal government is administered in a nonpartisan manner and that federal employees are protected from political coercion in the workplace.”
“Now, today, Ms. Conway is violating a duly authorized subpoena issued by this Committee. Ms. Conway is required to be here today to address her multiple violations of federal law, many of which occurred on national television.”
“Why is she not here? Just 25 minutes ago, the #WhiteHouse sent a letter to the Committee claiming Ms. Conway is “absolutely immune” from having to testify before Congress simply because she works in the #WhiteHouse.
“That is a completely baseless claim. Our Committee has heard testimony from many White House officials under both Republican and Democratic Administrations. “
“We are not requiring her to testify about advice she gave the #President or about the White House’s policy decisions.”
“We are requiring her to testify before Congress about her multiple violations of federal law, her waste of taxpayer funds, and her actions that compromise public confidence in the integrity of the federal government."
“This illegal activity—and the ongoing effort to cover it up—must not be allowed to stand. This is bigger than just the Hatch Act or any other law.”
“This is about holding our government to the highest standard and not allowing individuals appointed by the #President to be given special treatment when they flagrantly violate the law.”
“We hope Ms. Conway will reconsider. But if she does not, we will hold a business meeting on July 25 to hold her in contempt. “ -Chairman @RepCummings
