Trump Taps Kellyanne Conway’s Husband To Lead Justice Department’s Civil Division

President Donald Trump will appoint George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, to lead the civil division of the Department of Justice, several news outlets reported.

As the head of the civil division, Conway will oversee the defense of the Trump administration in the courts in many legal battles, including the president’s stalled executive order related to travel from certain Muslim-majority countries, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Conway is a longtime GOP lawyer who received his undergraduate degree from Harvard and his law degree from Yale. He previously clerked for Judge Ralph Winter on the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, according to his Wachtell Lipton biography. In the 1990s, he was on the legal team of some of the female accusers of President Bill Clinton. He is currently a partner at the firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.

Conway was previously considered for the post of solicitor general, which argues before the Supreme Court, but that job ultimately went to Noel Francisco.

The White House and both George and Kellyanne Conway did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The DOJ declined to comment.
