Trump to Nominate Adviserís Husband for Key DoJ Post

WASHINGTON Ė US President Donald Trump plans to nominate George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, to head the Justice Departmentís Civil Division, media reports said on Sunday.

George Conway, a partner in the litigation department at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, will be appointed to the post, overseeing about 1,000 government attorneys, The Wall Street Journal said.

The 53-year-old Conwayís wife, Kellyanne, served as Trumpís campaign manager and is one of the presidentís closest White House advisers.

If confirmed for the post, Conway would run one of the Justice Departmentís most important divisions.

Conway would be responsible for defending Trumpís controversial executive order banning the temporary entry of refugees in federal court.

The revised executive orderís implementation was blocked last week by two federal district judges.

Conway, a graduate of Harvard College and Yale Law School, would also have to deal with the legal ramifications of any potential conflicts of interest involving Trumpís business empire.
