Justin Amash Votes with Democrats to Subpoena Kellyanne Conway for Bogus ‘Hatch Act’ Allegations

This is the latest betrayal from the turncoat Congressman who has stabbed Republicans in the back.

In the latest phase of the Democrat-pushed witch hunt against the Trump administration, the House Oversight and Reform Committee voted 25-16 to subpoena White House counselor Kellyanne Conway today over alleged violations of the Hatch Act.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was the only Republican to vote with the Democrats to subpoena Conway, as the impeachment champion continues his betrayal of his party, his constituents, and the Fourth Amendment.

“There are rarely issues that come before our committee that are so clear-cut, but this is one of them,” Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said. “This is about right and wrong. This is about the core principle of our precious democracy, that nobody, not one person, nobody in this country is above the law.”

Henry Kerner, who leads the OSC and wrote the report claiming Conway violated the Hatch Act, claimed earlier today that Conway’s behavior “created an unprecedented challenge to OSC’s ability to enforce the Hatch Act.”

“Her conduct sent a false message to other federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act, or that senior officials are above the law,” Kerner testified. “I’m here to emphatically say that’s not the case.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Freedom Caucus blasted the ridiculousness of Kerner’s request:

Amash, who recently left the House Freedom Caucus after calling for impeachment, is now essentially caucusing with the Democrats. He works to give their witch hunt against President Trump bipartisan cover at every opportunity.

He had previously voted with Democrats on the Oversight Committee to hold AG William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress over a subpoena attempt regarding the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Amash is on the record supporting illegals having the right to vote in certain elections.

“The Democrats have continued to attack this administration on dubious grounds, and they aren’t going to let the facts get in the way of their own concocted stories,” Ross said.

“By holding a contempt vote, the committee has already demonstrated its scorn for the Constitution, continually refusing to engage in the constitutionally-mandated accommodation process. That is far more serious than the empty stunt the committee performed today,” he added.

Amash will likely continue doing the Democratic Party’s dirty work as he heads into a fierce primary battle with two Republican challengers in 2020.

He is also rumored to make a jump to the marginal Libertarian Party as their presidential candidate where he hopes to play spoiler against Trump in the key battleground state of Michigan, and potentially hand over the election to his Democratic Party allies.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
