The House Oversight and Reform Committee on Monday officially scheduled a vote for later in the week to hold White House counselor Kellyanne Conway in contempt of Congress after she failed to comply with a subpoena to testify about her repeated Hatch Act violations.
The panel will hold a business meeting on Thursday, at which time lawmakers will vote on whether to hold Conway in contempt. The move comes amid an ongoing battle between Democrats and the White House over compliance with congressional oversight investigations.
The committee sought Conway’s testimony at two separate hearings in recent weeks about her violations of the Hatch Act, which bars White House employees from speaking about elections in their official capacity.
After Conway did not appear voluntarily for testimony last month, the committee voted almost entirely along party lines to subpoena her. She did not comply with the subpoena, with the White House asserting she was immune from testifying.
Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said at the time he would vote to hold Conway in contempt if she did not testify by July 25.
I am looking forward to watching Kellyanne Conway finally facing the fact that she cannot defy Congress and get away with it.
I imagine that she would do a terrible job while testifying before Congress and would quickly find herself struggling to find answers to questions that she has been lying about for years.
I would gladly clear my calendar to watch that!
