Ethics Office Says Disciplinary Action Is Warranted Against Conway For Ivanka Comment

"... there is strong reason to believe ..."

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s defiant dare to consumers to go buy Ivanka Trump’s line of clothing and accessories has been condemned by a government ethics office.

“I recommend that the White House investigate Ms. Conway’s actions and consider taking disciplinary action against her,” Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub wrote in a Feb. 13 letter.

“Under the present circumstances, there is strong reason to believe that Ms. Conway has violated the Standards of Conduct Act and that disciplinary action is warranted,” he added in the letter to White House legal counsel Stefan Passantino.

The letter was posted online by Democrats on the House Oversight Committee.

Conway spoke up Thursday after Nordstrom decided not to stock Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, which had been the subject of protests related to her father’s election to the White House.

Conway took a defiant tone. “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff, is what I would tell you,” Conway said. “I’m going to give it a free commercial here. Go buy it today.”

The comment drew bipartisan attacks that Conway had crossed a line.

Further, the website Politico reported that Ivanka Trump was also irked at Conway for creating a controversy to which her brand would be linked.

In the letter sent to the White House, Shaub ruled that Conway used her interview “as an opportunity to market Ms. Trump’s products.”

The statements “would establish a clear violation of the prohibition against misuse of position,” Shaub wrote.

“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. Ms. Conway’s actions track that example almost exactly,” he wrote.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said last week that Conway had been “counseled” about her remarks.

Shaub’s letter said his office had not received any guidance on what, if anything, happened to Conway that could be labeled a corrective action.

Shaub wants the White House to let him know by Feb. 28 what has been done about the issue.

Conway noted after both Republicans and Democrats demanded an ethics investigation of her that President Donald Trump supported her “100 percent.

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
