Not surprisingly, the White House is doping nothing:

This statement is just wrong.— Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) June 13, 2019
1) #SCOTUS has repeatedly held that government employees have very limited First Amendment rights _as_ employees.
2) No one has deprived @KellyannePolls of anything; this is a recommendation to terminate her (wholly discretionary) gov't employment. https://t.co/f59m2nCBB3
It’s also incorrect to paint the OSC as biased. Henry Kerner, who Trump nominated to run the OSC, is a member of the Federalist Society who worked as a staffer for Issa and Chaffetz.
I was just standing in an office in the WH press office when Kellyanne Conway came in. I asked for her reaction to this. She pointed to the door and said “can you leave, please?” Later, I asked her again, and she said: “I have no reaction. Why would I give you a reaction?“ https://t.co/DZWKJsQLQb— Eamon Javers (@EamonJavers) June 13, 2019
Kellyanne, when asked last month about her past Hatch Act violations:— Dino Grandoni (@dino_grandoni) June 13, 2019
“Blah, blah, blah,” she said. “If you're trying to silence me through the Hatch Act, it's not going to work. Let me know when the jail sentence starts.” (https://t.co/2nwtVYfpm1)https://t.co/a5Sj3Hknt1
