A US watchdog of “violating the law of critical ethics” has accused Ivanka Trump eight times in two days.

In Washington (CRW), Citizens' Responsibility and Ethics claims that Ms. Trump, a senior adviser to the president has repeatedly violated the Hatch Act.

 

The Watchdog criticized Ms. Trump in eight tweets from October 11 to October 13 in which she promoted her father's re-election campaign.

 

The White House and the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Independent.

 

The Hatch Act, passed in 1939, seeks to restrict certain political activities of federal employees. Ensures that "federal employees are promoted on the basis of merit and not on the basis of political affiliation".

 

It also prevents employees from being coerced’ or pressured to participate in political activities and ensures that federal programs are conducted in a non-partisan manner.

 

Violations can be as small as tweets sent from a government account and can result in dismissal, or fines.

 

Several members of Mr. Trump's administration have been accused of violating the law on several occasions in the past, including former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.


The U.S. Office of the Special Adviser recommended in 2019 that Ms. Conway be fired "on several occasions" for violating the Code of Ethics.

 

However, since the President usually enforces violations of the Hatch Act, no member of the administration has suffered the consequences of the alleged violations.
