The House Oversight and Reform Committee held a hearing regarding the Office of Special Counsel’s recommendation that President Trump fire White House counselor Kellyanne Conway for her alleged Hatch Act violations. The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, prohibits employees in the executive branch from engaging in some forms of political activity. The president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials are excepted.

Shortly after its start, the hearing was put into recess so the committee could consider a subpoena for Ms. Conway, who refused to testify at the hearing. After approving the subpoena, the hearing continued and lawmakers resumed their questioning of Henry Kerner, the special counsel from the Office of Special Counsel. Mr. Kerner answered questions about his recommendation for Ms. Conway’s firing and how his office handled investigations into violations of the Hatch Act. close
