During today's White House press briefing, Trump spokesman Sean Spicer was asked about Kellyanne Conway's "free commercial" for Ivanka Trump's Nordstrom fashion line (which is being dropped) on FOX News.
According to Sparky Spicer, “She’s been counseled on that subject.” And then he quickly moved on.
Ethics experts weighed in all morning saying Conway clearly violated federal law which prohibits federal employees from “endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.”
