The Washington, D.C. Swamp’s plan to destroy Donald Trump involves scorched earth tactics to attack every aspect of his life.
And now the Deep State is targeting one of his closest advisors.
And the office of the special counsel just demanded Trump betray one of his closest allies in the worst way.
The office of the special counsel is different from Robert Mueller’s operation.
This outfit enforces the Hatch Act, which bans federal employees from engaging in partisan politics.
The office issued a report demanding Donald Trump fire Kellyanne Conway for criticizing Democrats in TV interviews.
The Washington Post reports:
The report submitted to President 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.” The agency described her as a “repeat offender.”
The decision about whether to remove Conway is up to Trump. A senior White House official said Thursday the president is unlikely to punish Conway and instead will defend her. The White House counsel immediately issued a letter calling for the agency to withdraw its recommendation that Conway be removed — a request the Office of Special Counsel declined.
In an interview, Special Counsel Henry Kerner called his recommendation that a political appointee of Conway’s stature be fired “unprecedented.”
“You know what else is unprecedented?” said Kerner, a Trump appointee who has run the agency since December 2017. “Kellyanne Conway’s behavior.”
The administration wisely ignored this partisan hack report.
Kellyanne Conway is one of the President’s longest serving and highest profile advisors.
That’s why she is being targeted by the swamp.
Previous Presidents put political hands on the payroll.
Barack Obama had David Axelrod in his administration and George W. Bush designated Karl Rove as a White House advisor.
No one went after them.
Attacking Kellyanne Conway is another way anti-Trump forces inside Washington, D.C. are trying to deprive President Trump the ability of carrying out his duties.
