The Trump crime syndicate currently in the White House just loves breaking the law. They’ve done it so much that people seem to have lost interest in their illegal acts. Today, the watchdog organization, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), filed a complaint against Sarah Huckabee Sanders for violating (again) the Hatch Act. This time she used her official White House Twitter account to post photos of her with music star Kanye West.

CREW says that the Hatch Act bars federal employees from using their offices, work resources and social media accounts for political purposes. Those found to have violated it can be fined as much as $1,000 and face disciplinary actions like suspension or termination. Earlier this year, the OSC clarified that any reference to Trump’s “MAGA” campaign slogan was a clear violation.
This is not the first time that Sanders and other members of the Trump administration have been accused of violating the Hatch Act. Kellyanne Conway’s done it, White House social media director, Dan Scavino did it last year as did U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, and Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham. Unfortunately, no one in the Trump administration ever gets punished for breaking the law.
CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder had this to say:
‘This administration does not seem to care about what the law says when it comes to ethics issues like using official positions for politics. How many investigations and findings of violations are needed until this administration takes action to stop the misuse of government resources for political activity?’
It’s easy to see how the Trump administration continually breaks ethics laws…because they have no idea what ethics are. They also have no morals whatsoever, and this country will be in much better shape once they’re gone from office.
