BREAKING: KELLYANNE CONWAY’S HUSBAND APPEARS LIKELY TO LEAD JUSTICE DEPARTMENT’S CIVIL DIVISION

Politico: George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has emerged as the front-runner to lead the civil division of the Department of Justice, according to two people familiar with the matter.

It could prove a key job as the head of the civil division will oversee the defense of the Trump administration in the courts in many legal battles, including those over the president’s stalled executive order related to travel from certain Muslim-majority countries.

Conway, a partner at the firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, was previously considered for the post of solicitor general, which argues before the Supreme Court, but that job ultimately went to Noel Francisco.

Conway, who is of Filipino descent, is a respected longtime GOP lawyer who received his undergraduate degree from Harvard and his law degree from Yale.
