Ethics Expert: Kellyanne Conway Could Face Penalties For Her Self-Described Ivanka Commercial [VIDEO]

Raw Story reports:

Norm Eisen, former White House ethics and transparency czar, asserted on Thursday that Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway had broken federal regulations by promoting Ivanka Trump’s brand on the air.  Eisen accused Conway of breaking §2635.702, which forbids “use of public office for private gain.”

“By doing this ad — I have never seen anything like it — it’s a violation of the rules, pure and simple,” Eisen said. “I imagine that you are going to see complaints flowing in. The responsibility to oversee this in the first instance is with the White House counsel, Don McGahn. He’s going to need to look at the rules, look at the precedents and decide what range of penalties might apply.”
