Conway’s Lies Have Caught Up To Her: More Than 15 Top Lawyers Are Looking To Disbar Her For ‘Dishonesty, Fraud, And Deceit’

A letter signed by more than 15 law professors from top universities calls for sanctions on Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway.

The letter signed on February 20 includes multiple law professors from Yale, Duke, and Georgetown. The letter calls for professional discipline against Conway, this is dues to her violation of a rule prohibiting lawyers from engaging in “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation.”

The lawyers who signed the letter asked the DC Court of Appeals to sanction Conway for her misconduct as White House counselor. They gave examples from time Conway made up a nonexistent “massacre” to justify temporarily barring Muslim immigrants from the US, to falsely saying President Barack Obama had implemented a six-month ban on entry to the US by Iraqi refugees, and endorsing Ivanka Trump’s clothing line while occupying a governmental position.

One lawyer did side with Conway. John F. Banzhaf, a law professor at Conway’s alma mater George Washington University, said that attempting to disbar her would be “unconstitutional because it would chill the freedom of speech of any political figure.”

But the signatories of the letter understood that and argued that Conway was “currently acting in a way that brings shame upon the legal profession.”

“We all believe it is critically important that lawyers in public office — especially those who act as spokespersons for the highest levels of government — be truthful,” the letter said.
