Don’t expect to see President Trump’s top political operative leaving the White House any time soon with her head hung low, personal belongings in a box, and a pink slip dangling from her purse. The President has decided it is OK for his staff to violate laws that get in his way, even though he expects the Special Counsel to prosecute to the fullest any fed who dares to put a big toe over the Hatch Act line. Union reps should keep this case in mind when called on to defend a member’s error and talk about selective prosecution.  Check out the Special Counsel’s press release about Ms. Conway.

    It’s also interesting that DoJ apparently did not cite the Hatch Act when the FBI fired Peter Strzok. I wonder whether they were worried about a selective prosecution defense in that case.
