He doesn't do that with judicial nominees because he can't. He does it with acting secretaries and government heads because he can. Does he do it to bypass senate confirmation hearings? Yes.

The Office of Special Counsel has determined that Kellyanne should change her name to Corruption Conway. They found that she violated the Hatch Act multiple times and recommend her ouster. When asked about it she had none of her smooth lies, just rage. Life is getting tough for Trump's attack dog.

Quote

Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday snapped at a reporter after he asked her for comment on the U.S. Office of Special Counsel’s conclusion that she has repeatedly broken the law.

CNBC White House correspondent Eamon Javers reports that he asked Conway if she had any reaction to the report on her repeated violations of the Hatch Act that bars most executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.

In response, Javers says Conway pointed at the door and said, “Can you leave please?”

Javers then asked her again — and she delivered a churlish response.

“I have no reaction,” Conway said. “Why would I give you a reaction?”

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel released its report this week in which it explained how Conway’s cable news appearances attacking Democratic presidential candidates were blatant violations of the Hatch Act. The office also recommended that Conway be removed from her office given that she is a repeat offender who has even made flippant remarks about breaking the law.

The White House, for its part, stood by Conway and attacked the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.

“The Office of Special Counsel’s (OSC) unprecedented actions against Kellyanne Conway are deeply flawed and violate her constitutional rights to free speech and due process,” the White House press office said in a statement. “Others, of all political views, have objected to the OSC’s unclear and unevenly applied rules which have a chilling effect on free speech for all federal employees.”

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

Great! This lying douchenozzle should now go off and spend the rest of her life in SILENT contemplation of how often she offended her God™. Instead she'll go off to continue lying on Faux News. Gots to pull in some of that fat false witness cash!

More info on Con-way's repeated violations of the law.

Quote

The Office of Special Counsel on Thursday recommended that President Trump fire senior adviser Kellyanne Conway over repeated violations of the Hatch Act.

A report attached to the OSC’s statement labels Conway a “repeat offender,” and says that her violations, “if left unpunished, would send a message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act’s restrictions.”

The Hatch Act bans federal employees from engaging in partisan political activity. The Office of Special Counsel is a federal watchdog agency that monitors federal employees.

The OSC report states that “If Ms. Conway were any other federal employee, her multiple violations of the law would almost certainly result in removal from her federal position by the Merit Systems Protection Board.”

“Her actions erode the principal foundation of our democratic system – the rule of law,” a letter prefacing the report reads.

Investigators cite a May 29, 2019 media appearance in which Conway appeared to downplay the law’s significance. “If you’re trying to silence me through the Hatch Act, it’s not going to work,” Conway said. “Let me know when the jail sentence starts.”

An executive summary of the report cites Conway’s May 2019 comments, saying that “her defiant attitude is inimical to the law.”

A Trump nominee — Henry Kerner — is in charge of the OSC. “OSC respectfully requests that Ms. Conway be held to the same standards as all other federal employees, and, as such, you find removal from federal service to be appropriate disciplinary action,” Kerner wrote in the Thursday letter to Trump.


Here's what OSC chief Henry Kerner had to say.

Quote

Office of the Special Counsel chief Henry Kerner admitted in an interview with the Washington Post that it was “unprecedented” for his office to recommend that White House counselor Kellyanne Conway be fired.

But the crime warranted the punishment, he insisted.

“You know what else is unprecedented? Kellyanne Conway’s behavior,” Kerner told the Post after the Office of Special Counsel released a statement condemning Conway for her repeated violations of the Hatch Act, which bans federal works from conducting political work from their federal post.

“In interview after interview, she uses her official capacity to disparage announced candidates, which is not allowed,” Kerner, a 2017 Trump appointee, told the Post. “What kind of example does that send to the federal workforce? If you’re high enough up in the White House, you break the law, but if you’re a postal carrier or a regular federal worker, you lose your job?”


Here's background on very conservative Henry Kerner. This guy is hard-core right. He's also apparently not willing to sell out our democracy. That makes him a RINO at best and the right-wingut (now the base) of the party has been suspicious of him before because he didn't tow the Lyin' Line.

Quote

The White House’s enemy du jour is no deep state liberal bureaucrat — though he has been accused of being one before.

Henry Kerner — the Trump-appointed government watchdog who recommended that Kellyanne Conway be ousted for her repeated violations of the Hatch Act — previously cut his teeth working for conservative warriors on the Hill, on some of the right’s favorite investigations, including Fast and Furious.

But he has also been the center of conspiracy theories among tea party types for his alleged connection to claims that the IRS, under the Obama administration, was targeting conservative groups.

Kerner has denied those allegations. Nevertheless, he is likely to be on the receiving end of the right’s hatred yet again now that the White House is going after him aggressively for his report on Conway released Thursday.

Kerner was nominated to his current role as special counsel in the watchdog agency the Office of Special Counsel (not to be confused with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office) in May of 2017. His nomination had bipartisan support and his confirmation sailed through the Senate.

According to the Kerner biography released by the White House then, before he was a staffer on the Hill, he spent nearly 20 years as a career prosecutor in California and is a graduate from Harvard Law. In 2011, he joined the staff of House Oversight Committee, where he worked under former Chairmen Darrell Issa and Jason Chaffetz, both GOP attack dogs.

But while on the Hill, he also worked for the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). It was there that some overhyped allegations led to him being painted by conservative blogs as a “Deep State Fixer,” a “destroyer” of lives, and a safeguarder of “the swamp.”

Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah had some fun over Suckabee's announced departure.

Quote

When Jimmy Kimmel told his audience Thursday about Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ departure from the White House, he informed them that she was leaving to become a professional skateboarder.

“That’s true,” he said. “Or it’s at least as true as everything she said while she was working at the White House.”

“Sarah Sanders hasn’t held a press conference in three months,” the late-night host added. “So I’m not sure what job it is she’s even leaving. But she did appear with reporters today to allow the president the chance to say goodbye.”

Noting her unusually large smile, Kimmel said, “Look at her. Have you ever seen that face so happy before? She is literally Hucka-beaming with joy at the thought of leaving at the end of the month.”

“Is there anyone even left working at the White House?” he asked. “It’s starting to feel like one of those empty Blockbuster video stores. Maybe they’ll put in a temporary costume shop for Halloween.”

From there, he paid tribute to “all the Hucka-B.S. she gave us,” before revealing who “sources inside the White House” are saying might replace her: “a box of TGI Friday’s loaded cheddar and bacon potato skins.”

Meanwhile, after Trevor Noah announced that Sanders was stepping down on The Daily Show, he told his viewers, “And we know that it’s true because she denied it.”

Noah went on to say that the news isn’t so surprising because she stopped giving press conferences months ago. “So it’s just quitting what she already wasn’t doing,” he said. “She basically quit being press secretary the same way Trump quit CrossFit.”

How remarkable has it been that Trump has not faced a real crisis as a President in his first 2.5 years. Not even a real problem of Presidential magnitude or consequence. He's a lucky SOB. Life has not caught up with him yet.

For Bush it was 9/11 and then the ongoing disasters of Afghanistan and Iraq.

For Obama it was financial crisis and the slow pace of recovery. And the right wing obstruction.

Come to think of it, even firing Comey turned out to Trump's benefit. If Comey had led the FBI inquiry, it would have likely led to more indictments, and more straightforward language as to Presidential culpability.

Trump's cowardice may keep us from a real short term crisis like Iran war, but I shudder to think what would happen if one (e.g. Ebola) hits our shores.

He's so determined to be the center of everything that he is the crisis. That's not exaggeration, except to the extent that arguably the title belongs to McConnell. The US Constitution is as sketchy as it is [1] in large part because it assumes a large degree of informal norms to keep everything running smoothly. After our Civil War, everyone was in such a rush to get back to "normal" that we didn't have the collective will to correct the obviously structural problems.

Trump said he's not going to fire Criminally Corrupt Kellyanne Conway because she's been "loyal." Once again the law doesn't apply to him or his.

Quote

Getting rid of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is not even on the table, Trump told “Fox and Friends” Friday.

She’s too “loyal.”

“It really sounds to me like a free speech thing, it doesn’t sound fair,” Trump said, suggesting that his regular TV surrogate should be allowed to speak her mind about his political opponents when she’s asked questions about them, despite the rules of the Hatch Act, which bars federal employees from doing just that.

“Mr. President, you’re not going to fire her?” Fox’s Steve Doocy asked.

“No, I’m not going to fire her,” he said. “I think she’s a terrific person, she’s a tremendous spokesperson, she’s been loyal, she’s been — she’s just a great person, I would certainly not think — based on what I saw yesterday, how could you do that? They have tried to take away her speech, and I think you’re entitled to free speech in this country.”

Trump later told Fox News that he was going to have a “very strong briefing” on the issue and “I’ll see, but it seems to me to be very unfair, it’s called freedom of speech.”

Mnuchin buried the move to place Harriot Tubman on the $20 bill so that Trump, the nationalist white supremacists' best friend, wouldn't cancel the project outright and take a PR hit.

Quote

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin delayed and possibly permanently derailed the process of putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill so President Donald Trump wouldn’t put the kibosh on the process altogether and create a public relations nightmare, the New York Times reported.

Everyone from Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan ® to a group of House Democrats has been requesting that the process be hastened.

Mnuchin claims that the delays come from installing security features in the bill, though an expert told the Times that those are usually embedded in the imagery, meaning that in the normal course of development, the design and security implementation would occur simultaneously.

Trump has called the idea to replace former President Andrew Jackson with Tubman pure “political correctness.” Mnuchin has not committed to putting Tubman on the bill eventually, a redesign chosen by former President Barack Obama.
