The House Oversight Committee voted Wednesday to subpoena White House counselor Kellyanne Conway to testify over her violations of the Hatch Act, a law barring federal employees from engaging in political activity as part of their official duties. The White House blocked Conway from appearing before the panel for yesterday’s hearing. Earlier this month, a White House watchdog informed President Trump that Conway violated the act “on numerous occasions” by “disparaging Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in an official capacity during television interviews and on social media.” Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings warned that his panel would vote to hold Conway in contempt if she ignores the subpoena.
