The OSC report itself stated that in one February 19 interview on "Fox & Friends", Conway "insinuated that Senator Booker was "sexist" and a "tinny" "motivational speaker, '" and claimed Sen".

President Donald Trump said he won't fire White House adviser Kellyanne Conway following a government watchdog's recommendation she be "removed from federal service" for disparaging Democratic presidential candidates in her official capacity as a senior White House adviser."No, I'm not going to fire her", Trump said Friday during a phone interview with Fox News. I think she's a terrific person.

The Trump Administration is pushing back on calls for White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway to be fired. As you later acknowledged, OSC's actions were prompted by your desire to respond to press questions concerning a media report that day about comments that Ms. Conway had allegedly made and by the purported personal "offense" that you took to those comments even though you made no effort to investigate before rushing to judgment.

"No, I'm not going to fire her", Trump told Fox News' "Fox & Friends". She's a tremendous spokesperson.

"It really sounds like a free speech thing", he added, reported Breitbart reporter Charlie Spiering.

The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

"Attached to this letter is a copy of the U.S. Office of Special Counsel's (OSC) investigative report detailing numerous violations of the Hatch Act by Counsellor to the President Kellyanne Conway", the letter reads. "And that's just not fair". It is a separate agency from the office run by now-former special counsel Robert Mueller, who led the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"You ask them a question, you ask a person a question, and every time you are supposed to say I can't answer, I can't answer?"

When Brian Kilmeade asked if he would encourage Conway to stop criticizing other political figures, Trump answered, "It doesn't work that way..."

House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings said his committee will hold a hearing with the Office of Special Counsel on June 26 and will invite Conway to testify. He said the social media posts and media interviews didn't violate the Hatch Act.
