Trump's social media director admonished for political tweet


Shortly after the tweet about Amash was posted on April 2, Scavino seemed to brush off ethics concerns, responding to a question from a fellow Twitter user by saying "What 'ethics lawyers?' The ones from the Obama Admin who want to take Trump down, or the Bush Admin who were #NeverTrump?"

Dan Scavino Jr., the White House's point man on social media, is in trouble because of, well, his social media. That's when Amash and fellow members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus were at odds with the President over the first version of the GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. "@justinamash is a big liability", Scavino wrote on April 1. "#TrumpTrain, defeat him in primary", Scavino's tweet said. Dan Scavino reprimanded for Hatch Act violation!

The OSC says US government employees can express their opinions about partisan groups or candidates from their personal accounts, but with limitations: They cannot "refer to their official titles or positions while engaged in political activity at any time". The tweet was sent on a Saturday, and from a personal account, muddying whether it was sent in an official White House capacity.

President Donald Trump's social media director violated federal law earlier this year when he advocated for the election defeat of a Republican congressman, a USA investigative agency has concluded.

Scavino is one of the president's most loyal and longest-serving aides in the White House.

The letter the office sent to CREW was silent on whether it meant to pursue any action against Scavino beyond issuing him a warning. Scavino was warned if he engages in such activity in the future, the office will consider it a "willful and knowing violation of the law".

Scavino's Twitter account at the time featured photos of him standing in the Oval Office and of Trump delivering a speech behind a lectern with the presidential seal, CREW complained.
