VOA双语新闻:政府报告称总统顾问康威受访时两度违反联邦法

The White House has rejected a government report that concluded a top presidential advisor, Kellyanne Conway, violated federal law when she conducted two televised interviews last year.

白宫拒绝接受一份政府报告。这份报告得出结论认为,川普总统的高级顾问凯莉安·康威去年在接受两次电视采访时违反了联邦法律。

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel said in report Tuesday Conway advocated during a November interview with Fox News for the defeat of a senate candidate in an Alabama special election and gave an "implied endorsement" for another candidate. In a December interview on CNN, she advocated for the defeat of a candidate and the election of another.

独立机构美国特别检察官办公室说,康威去年11月在接受福克斯新闻采访时呼吁在阿拉巴马州特别选举中击败某位参议员候选人并“暗示支持”另一位候选人。去年12月,她在接受有线电视新闻网采访时,呼吁击败一位候选人并把选票投给另一位候选人。

The office said both were violations of the Hatch Act, which prohibits most federal government employees from using their official authority to influence elections. The office submitted the report to the president for him to take "appropriate disciplinary action."

美国独立检察官办公室说,康威在这两次采访中都违反了《哈奇法》。这部法律禁止多数联邦政府雇员利用职权影响选举。该机构将报告递交给总统,让他给予康威“适当的纪律处分”。

“Kellyanne Conway did not advocate for or against the election of any particular candidate. She simply expressed the president’s obvious position that he have people in the House and Senate who support his agenda," the White House said in a statement.

白宫发表声明说:“凯莉安·康威没有主张支持或反对选举中的任何一位特定候选人。她只是表达了总统的明显立场,那就是他在众议院和参议院中有支持自己议程的人。”

In both interviews, Conway was discussing the senate race between Democratic candidate Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore, who were vying to replace Jeff Sessions when he became Trump's attorney general.

在两次采访中,康威讨论的是民主党候选人道格·琼斯和共和党候选人罗伊·莫尔争夺代表阿拉巴马州的联邦参议员席位的选战。这个席位是杰夫·塞申斯出任川普的司法部长后空出来的。

The office said it gave Conway an opportunity to respond to its findings, but she declined to do so.

美国特别检察官办公室说,他们给了康威机会回应相关结论,但她拒绝回应。

The Office of Special Counsel is not associated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 elections.

美国特别检察官办公室与目前正在调查俄罗斯干预2016年选举的特别检察官罗伯特·穆勒没有关系。
