Watchdog Finds Officials Illegally Campaigned While in Office

Thirteen of Trump’s most Senior Aides, including his Son-in-Law and his Chief-of-Staff, Campaigned Illegally for Trump’s Re-Election, in Violation of a Hatch Act Law, designed to Prevent Federal Employees from Abusing the Power of their Offices on Behalf of Candidates, a Government Watchdog Agency, said Tuesday.

The Hatch Act of 1939, An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law. Its main provision prohibits civil service employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president and vice president, from engaging in some forms of political activity. It became law on August 2, 1939. The law was named for Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico. It was most recently amended in 2012.

Henry Kerner, who Heads the Office of Special Counsel, made the Assertion in a withering Report that followed a nearly Yearlong Investigation.

“Senior Trump administration officials chose to use their official authority not for the legitimate functions of the government, but to promote the re-election of President Trump in violation of the law,” the Report concluded.

Investigators in Kerner’s Office said Trump Administration Officials purposely Violated the Law, during the Final few weeks of the Administration, when they knew that the Office of Special Counsel would Not have time to Investigate and Issue Findings before Election Day.

The Kerner Report describes: a Concerted, Willful effort to Violate the Law by the most Senior Officials in the White House.

The People accused of Breaking the Law are a, who’s who, of Trump Officials:

- Dan Brouillette, Secretary of Energy

- Kellyanne Conway, Counselor

- Alyssa Farah, White House Communications Director

- David Friedman, Ambassador to Israel

- Jared Kushner, Senior Adviser

- Kayleigh McEnany, Press Secretary

- Mark Meadows, Chief-of-Staff

- Stephen Miller, Senior Adviser

- Brian Morgenstern, Deputy Press Secretary

- Robert C. O’Brien, National Security Adviser

- Marc Short, Chief-of-Staff to the Vice President

- Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State

- Chad Wolf, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security

The Report said that Pompeo and Wolf Violated the Law through their Actions during the Republican National Convention, which took place at the White House, because of the Ppandemic.
