Only moments after the announcement was made that Kellyanne Conway had been found guilty of violating the Hatch Act by the Office of the Special Counsel, Twitter immediately exploded with Americans who are sick and tired of hearing about crimes committed by Obama, the IRS, Hillary Clinton, the Clinton
Money Laundering Operation Foundation, and even by our intelligence committee, that have to date, all gone unpunished.
A federal agency informed the White House on Tuesday that it has determined top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway violated the Hatch Act on two separate occasions while discussing last year’s contentious Alabama Senate race on television.
The Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency, released a report Tuesday that faults Conway for public comments made during two television appearances, including on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
“While the Hatch Act allows federal employees to express their views about candidates and political issues as private citizens, it restricts employees from using their official government positions for partisan political purposes, including by trying to influence partisan elections,” the report says.
A Fox News panel discussed what it means, now that Kellyanne Conway has been found guilty of violating the Hatch Act.
“Kellyanne Conway did not advocate for or against the election of any particular candidate,” deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said. “She simply expressed the president’s obvious position that he have people in the House and Senate who support his agenda. In fact, Kellyanne’s statements actually show her intention and desire to comply with the Hatch Act – as she twice declined to respond to the host’s specific invitation to encourage Alabamans to vote for the Republican.”
Walter Shaub, the former director of the Office of Government Ethics, filed an ethics complaint with the OSC in November accusing Conway of violating the Hatch Act when she spoke about Democratic candidate Doug Jones, who was running against Republican Roy Moore. The law bars most government employees from using their positions to engage in partisan politics. – Fox News
Here’s how Twitter responded to the news of Conway’s “violation of the Hatch Act”.
“Funkytown” reminded Twitter users of the long list of people who should be in prison, but are all walking free, while the Office of the Special Counsel focuses on Kellyanne Conway:
The Steven Miller parody account was very vocal about the Kellyanne Conway witch hunt:
“Miller” tells Conway, “…you should have just unleashed the IRS to go after your enemies and the media would be just fine with it.”
Collin Rugg went through the list of names and groups who should have been investigated and punished by Mueller and the DOJ, while they instead, focused on Conway possibly violating the Hatch Act.
Obama illegally spying:“Meh”
Hillary paying for fake dossier:“Meh”
Dems colluding with Russia:“Meh”
Dems colluding with FBI:“Meh”
Hillary destroying evidence:“Meh”
Hillary lying to FBI:“Meh”
Comey leaking classified info:“Meh”
Kellyanne Conway violating Hatch Act:“IMPEACH TRUMP”

Jacob Wohl calls the Office of the Special Counsel’s investigation of Conway a “witch hunt” that is “completely out of control.”
This witch hunt is completely out of control. Mueller is worried about Kellyanne Conway talking about elections, but doesn't care about Hillary hiring a foreign spy during the election https://t.co/I5VbosifaP

“Kambree Kawahine Koa reminded everyone that if Conway was a Democrat “there wouldn’t be a peep about the Hatch Act.” Sadly, she is 100% correct…

Finally, “Steven Miller” reminds everyone, “Robert Mueller is letting Democrats get away with serious civil rights violations against innocent Americans while Trump officials are being charged for overcooking a plate of fish.”
