Target: Senator Charles Schumer, Senate Minority Leader
Goal: Deny appointment of Trump adviser’s husband to important administration position.
George Conway, the husband of Trump’s top adviser Kelleyanne Conway, will allegedly be given a top position in Trump’s administration as U.S. solicitor general. This pick shows once again that Trump is rewarding friends and close allies with top government positions. Even more troubling, he will be surrounding himself with “yes men.”
As solicitor general, Conway will be the lead lawyer of the federal government before the Supreme Court. He will defend any policies the Trump administration puts into place and decide what happens to the policies and legacies left behind by President Obama, such as the Affordable Care Act. Most troubling, Conway will be able to defend any and all conflicts Trump’s businesses present, should Trump not rid himself of his company and its assets while in office.
Conway’s past resume includes working for the disenfranchisement of citizens. If Conway is approved for the position, Trump will probably not be challenged on a single piece of legislation or conflict of interest. Sign the petition and demand that Democrats in the Senate work with others to ensure Conway’s nomination is denied.
Dear Senator Schumer,
Donald Trump will allegedly nominate George Conway, husband to adviser Kelleyanne Conway, as U.S. Solicitor General. In such a position, Conway will be able to defend any Trump policy, as well as any conflict of interest Trump’s businesses present. Conway will also play a role in determining the future of President Obama’s policies.
Conway’s nomination would be troubling because it would show, once again, that Trump is not only rewarding his friends with important government positions, but also surrounding himself with men and women who will neither question nor challenge his policies and conflicts. I ask that you rally your fellow Democrats and even Republicans, who fear a government without checks, and work to deny Conway this possible appointment.
