Fox News senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday said it was clear that White House advisor Kellyanne Conway repeatedly violated federal law.
The Office of Special Counsel said that Kellyanne Conway should be removed from her position after repeatedly engaging in political speech in her official capacity.
“The office is headed by a man who was appointed by President Trump,” Fox News host Shepard Smith noted. “It said, if left unpunished, her actions send the message to all federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act.”
Napolitano explained that the regulation prevented federal employees from engaging in partisan attacks while on federal property or using federal assets.
“It seems like a pretty clear-cut case to me, and it seems like her behavior is repeated,” Napolitano said.
Ordinarily, the Hatch Act is “so well-abided by that members of Congress know that they can’t engage in partisan political politics on the telephone from their own offices in the House of Representatives,” Napolitano said.
“They have to go to the call center,” Smith added.
Israel’s Benny Gantz: political novice trying to oust Netanyahu
Former armed forces chief Benny Gantz has a shot at ending Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's record-breaking term in office, but still faces a tough battle to capture the premiership.
Netanyahu announced on Monday evening he could not form a new government following a deadlocked September election, making way for Gantz to try.
But although Gantz's centrist Blue and White alliance won 33 seats in parliament, one more than Netanyahu's Likud, he has not so far secured the support of the majority of the 120 lawmakers needed to form a stable coalition.
Gantz, a 60-year-old former paratrooper, had no previous political experience when he declared himself Netanyahu's electoral rival in December.
Internet rains hell on Trump for comparing his impeachment to a ‘lynching’: ‘How dare you’
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump furiously took time Twitter, blasting the effort to impeach him over the Ukraine scandal as a "lynching" and threatening that a future Republican Congress will cook up charges against a Democratic president.
Trump's outburst did not impress many commenters on social media, who quickly dogpiled him in criticism and mockery:
You are seriously comparing your impeachment to hate crimes against African-Americans?
Corrupt Ukraine oligarch has enlisted Trump allies to help with defense

Dmytro Firtash is wanted in the United States on bribery and related charges, and he hired pro-Trump attorneys Joseph DiGenova and Victoria Toensing to help paint his prosecution as part of a global conspiracy involving Joe Biden, reported the Wall Street Journal.
