Reports: Trump To Announce Top Advisor’s Husband For DOJ Civil Division


President Donald Trump has picked the husband of top White House advisor Kellyanne Conway to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Division, according to several reports.

Trump will nominate George T. Conway III to lead the office charged with defending Trump’s executive order on immigration, according to reports by the New York Times and Fox News citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter.

Conway is a partner at Wall Street law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, per those reports, and was previously under consideration for other positions in Trump’s administration.

The Department of Justice referred TPM in an email to the White House, which did not immediately respond to TPM’s requests for comment.
