The 4th Reich officially declared that spokesperson Bullshit Barbie, er, Kellyanne “Let me know when the jail sentence starts” Conway would NOT honor House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings’ polite request that she have a nice chit-chat with him about all the times she has gleefully violated the Hatch Act.
And per usual, the White House has invented yet another new privilege! This one is really rich:
“White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote in a letter to Cummings that he was citing longstanding precedent that allows members of the White House to decline invitations to testify before Congress.
“As you know, the precedent for members of the White House staff to decline invitations to testify before congressional committees has been consistently adhered to by administrations of both political parties, and is based on clearly established constitutional doctrines,” Cipollone wrote.”
