Trump expected to pick George Conway for Key Justice Dept. role
Chewing the same cinnamon Orbit gum as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Conway basically said she would never want Spicer's job. "The need for my executive order is clear". He now practices law at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, a powerhouse law firm based in New York City, where he specializes in securities and corporate law. The appointment would require Senate confirmation.
Conway is a graduate of Harvard College and received his law degree from Yale University. The law firm's website says Conway has extensive experience in litigation involving securities, mergers and acquisitions, contracts and antitrust cases.
Conway was one of a team of lawyers who drafted a legal brief on behalf of Paula Jones who sued President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment, according to numerous media reports.
Throughout his career, he has represented high-profile clients, including the National Football League and cigarette giant Philip Morris, which he represented in a successful defamation lawsuit against ABC News. He also clerked for US Circuit Judge Ralph Winter, Jr. of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, who was nominated to the court by President Ronald Reagan.
Conway was reportedly considered for the U.S. Solicitor General nomination, which ended up going to Noel Francisco.
What do you think of Kellyanne Conway's odd interview answers? Within a month she had become his campaign manager, and a few weeks later, Trump was almost tied with Democrat Hillary Clinton in the polls.
Trump's campaign advisor turned senior consultant has become one of the biggest targets for Trump's opponents thanks to her polarizing statements on various news programs, the most infamous being her assertion following the inauguration that the Trump administration was providing "alternative facts". She is also known for artfully defending the president in the press, but has been criticized for backing Trump's unsubstantiated claims, including his most recent allegation he was wiretapped by former President Obama.
