Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity took aim at House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) who penned a letter to the Office of Government Ethics recommending disciplinary action for Trump aide Kellyanne Conway for promoting Ivanka Trump’s clothing line a day earlier on FNC’s “Fox & Friends.”
Hannity pointed out that Chaffetz and his committee were unable to make any charges stick against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her indiscretions while working for the Obama administrations.
“This is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard,” Hannity said. “It really is. I have no idea what Congressman Jason Chaffetz is thinking. As the chairman of the House Oversight Committee that he wants an investigation into Kellyanne Conway because she mentioned Ivanka Trump’s clothing line on ‘Fox & Friends’ the other day. You can’t be serious here? You know, these are the same people, many of who couldn’t nail Hillary on anything. They let the ’email-gate,’ Benghazi go by the wayside, not to mention the IRS and ‘Fast and Furious.’ They get nothing done. But they’re not going to let that fashion comment by Kellyanne Conway — a joke reference to the first daughter’s clothing line.”
“The idea that this is what we’re going to spend our time on is obscene,” he continued. “Anyway, he sent a bipartisan letter to the White House alleging that Kellyanne Conway may have violated a federal ethic law.”
