Nancy Pelosi is waging total war against Donald Trump and his administration.
But now the Democrats are going nuclear.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi gave the OK for this plan to put Kellyanne Conway in jail.
Anti-Trump RINOs in the Office of Special Counsel – which is different from Robert Mueller’s team – recently recommended Donald Trump fire Kellyanne Conway for so-called “violations” of the Hatch Act.
The Hatch Act prevents federal employees from engaging in political activities while collecting a government paycheck.
But it was intended to prevent career bureaucrats from tilting the political scales with partisan activities.
The Office of Special Counsel claimed Kellyanne Conway answering media questions about Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders was a bridge too far and should result in her firing.
Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee seized on this made up scandal to subpoena Conway to testify.
The White House announced it had instructed Conway to ignore this fishing expedition.
This led to Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings threatening to hold a contempt vote unless Conway complied by July 25.
“We’re not requiring her to testify about advice she gave the president or about the White House policy decisions . . . We are requiring her to testify before Congress about her multiple violations of federal law,” Cummings told reporters.
Conway shut down this attempt to embarrass her politically to score points at Donald Trump’s expense during an interview on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program.
“I’m concerned that there is such a politicization and weaponization of this thing called the Hatch Act. If you go back and look at some of the things that are in the original report, they are just ripped from the headlines, they’re not my opinions,” Conway told Hannity.
“I’m also effective in explaining his policies to Americans,” Conway added.
“Everybody knows that….they are just mad — they know that I helped the president who got elected all by himself but I’m still here talking about his policies.”
Conway told Hannity she would be willing to testify but protecting the longstanding Constitutional principles of separation of power was more important.
“I’d be happy to testify. I have nothing to hide. I’ve done nothing wrong,” Conway said.
“I would love to go testify, but I’m taking one for the team here because there’s a long-standing tradition to claim immunity and not have people like me testify.”
The next day Conway met with reporters and elaborated on this partisan witch hunt.
Conway stressed that as a senior counselor to the President she was asked questions about Democrats running for President and merely made factual statements about the candidates.
The Senior Counselor to the President stressed that the Washington swamp targeted her because she was a high profile and effective communicator on behalf of President Trump.
“This is the latest example of harassment and embarrassment, trying to harass and embarrass people closest to the president,” Conway told reporters. “This is about me going on TV and stating facts. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are old. They are white. They are male. They are career politicians. Joe Biden got elected to the Senate 49 years ago . . . They’re trying to silence me and take away my First Amendment rights.”
