No respect for the law. As usual.

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway did not show up to testify at a hearing on Monday about Hatch Act violations for a second time, despite being issued a subpoena by the House Oversight and Reform Committee following her absence at the first hearing last month.
“In defiance of that subpoena, Ms. Conway is, again, refusing to appear,” Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said during opening statements. Cummings said he hoped Conway would reconsider her decision not to testify, but if not, the committee will have a meeting to hold her in contempt on July 25.
The White House called the hearing “purely political” and asserted in a press release that Conway has constitutional immunity. “Democrats continue to overreach and politicize the Office of Special Counsel – this time, by trying to silence Kellyanne Conway with ill-founded, phony allegations about the Hatch Act,” the statement read.
In June, the Office of Special Counsel recommended that Conway be removed from office after finding that she committed at least 25 separate violations of the Hatch Act, a 1939 law that prevents most federal employees from using their position to influence an election.
All these people do is obstruct, obstruct, obsruct.
I hope they throw the book at her.
