Trump taps Kellyanne Conway's husband for head of Justice Department's civil division

Trump taps Kellyanne Conway's husband for head of Justice Department's civil division”

In a new New York Magazine profile on counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, the woman who ran President Trump's campaign opened up about the job she was nearly offered: press secretary.

Conway is a partner at the NY law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.

As the Journal notes, Conway's biography says that he has "worked on major securities law cases and deal litigation".

Nuzzi also got the president's notoriously secretive chief strategist and former Breitbart editor Steve Bannon on the record about Conway.

It's not just Conway who comes off better than one would hope, that's one of the problems with sympathetically profiling the White House's resident spin artist.

Man who attempted to breach White House was unarmed, says law enforcement
With the president in the White House, the intruder was evidently able to hide behind a pillar and get to a door undetected. It added that the intruder did not come inside the White House , where President Donald Trump was staying at that time.

Fitting, then, that the controversy is now coming full circle with Drake . "I'm off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist". You might hear some tunes from the family (frequent collaborators) on there, but I'm just really excited.

Judges in Hawaii and Maryland halted the implementation of the ban, which is created to prevent citizens from six majority-Muslim countries from entering the US.

The executive order, which seeks to restrict travel from six predominantly Muslim nations, was blocked by federal judges in Hawaii in Maryland last week. In the 90s, Conway wrote the Supreme Court brief allowing Paula Jones to sue then-President Clinton in civil court for sexual harassment. He graduated from Harvard and Yale Law School. He also clerked for US Circuit Judge Ralph Winter, Jr. of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, who was nominated to the court by President Ronald Reagan.

Speaking at the National Review Institute's Ideas Summit in Washington on Friday, Conway explained that Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, devised a plan on how the losing candidate would concede on Election Night.

Trump's campaign advisor turned senior consultant has become one of the biggest targets for Trump's opponents thanks to her polarizing statements on various news programs, the most infamous being her assertion following the inauguration that the Trump administration was providing "alternative facts". To see her open up and shoot back is interesting to see, and Conway critics may now see that she is more than what the Trump administration made her out to be.
