A government accountability watchdog says White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders violated federal law when she posted a photo of rapper Kanye West on her official White House Twitter account. In the photo, Sanders is seen smiling as she poses next to West, who’s wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat. In March, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said that any official White House communication promoting Trump’s signature campaign slogan is a clear violation of the Hatch Act, which restricts employees from using their official government positions for partisan political purposes.
