Conway says Trump has her back amid Ivanka comment controversy

"I hate shopping but I'm going to go get some myself today", she said. "I own some of it", Conway said. I'm just gonna give a free commercial here.

"Go buy Ivanka's stuff, is what I would tell you".

White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Conway had been "counseled" on her comments.

TVNZ's US Correspondent says Trump defending his daughter and her business ventures blurs the lines.

The letter asked the agency to recommend discipline given that Mr Trump, who as Ms Conway's agency head would ordinarily take action, holds an "inherent conflict of interest" due to the involvement of his daughter's business. A spokeswoman said President Trump "understands she was merely sticking up for a wonderful woman who she has great respect for and felt was treated unfairly".

The Utah congressman and ranking Democrat on the Oversight Committee, Elijah Cummings, in a letter requested a formal inquiry into what could be a potential ethics violation.

"Kellyanne has been counseled and that's all we're going to go with", he said.

Norm Eisen, a special counsel on ethics during the Obama administration, told MSNBC that this whole episode is "an example of why Donald Trump and his family needed to step away, needed to make a more definitive break". CREW officials say Conway also may have broken a federal law that prohibits the use of public funds for non-official purposes. While Trump himself is not subject to the standards of ethical conduct for federal employees, Conway is.

The luxury department stores Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Belk recently dropped the Ivanka Trump label, Racked reported last week.

There will certainly be debate as to whether this applies to Conway and other White House advisers.

Specifically, the regulations provide that "a$3 n employee shall not sue or permit the use of [her] Government position or title or any authority associated with [her] public office to endorse any product, service or enterprise" except in circumstances clearly inapplicable here.

This all started after the retailer Nordstrom announced it would drop Ivanka Trump's fashion line, citing poor sales.

"I think people can see through that".
