White House blocks Conway from House oversight hearing

White House blocks Conway from House oversight hearingThe White House said Monday it will not allow presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway to appear before a House committee looking into allegations that she repeatedly violated a federal law that limits political activity by government workers. The White House refusal, outlined in a letter from White House lawyer Pat Cipollone, sets up a possible subpoena fight with the House Oversight Committee, which is reviewing Conway's actions. Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the panel's chairman, has said he will call for a vote on a subpoena for Conway if she fails to appear at a hearing Wednesday.
