Office of Government Ethics requests White House discipline Kellyanne Conway

The United States Office of Government Ethics called on the White House to discipline counselor Kellyanne Conway after she used her official position to promote Ivanka Trump's products.

Conway said on Fox & Friends last week: "Go buy Ivanka's stuff. … I'm going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today everybody, you can find it online."

"Although Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated during a press conference … that 'Kellyanne has been counseled, and that's all we're going to go with,' the OGE has not yet received notification of any disciplinary or other corrective action against Ms. Conway," said the OGE letter to White House ethics official Stefan Passantino.

The letter, signed by OGE director Walter Shaub, added: "I recommend the White House investigate Ms. Conway's actions and consider taking disciplinary action against her." Read the full letter below. Jeva Lange
