WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump's social media director Dan Scavino broke the law in April in calling for Trump supporters to defeat a Republican congressman at the polls, Politico reported on Friday, citing the US Office of Special Counsel.

Politico said the office found that Scavino had violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits executive branch employees from engaging in some forms of political activity, and had issued Scavino a warning letter.
