Trump to Tap Kellyanne Conway’s Husband to Head Civil Division of DOJ

HeadlineMar 20, 2017

President Trump has reportedly tapped Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, to head the civil division of the Justice Department. If confirmed, George Conway would head the department of government lawyers charged with defending key lawsuits, including those against Trump’s embattled travel ban and those alleging Trump’s business interests violate the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause. George Conway has worked as a corporate lawyer for nearly three decades, during which time he represented corporate clients such as cigarette company Philip Morris and the National Football League.
