The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has formed a group to push back at President Donald Trump.
George Conway’s group, Checks and Balances, includes prominent conservative and libertarian attorneys, according to The Washington Post. The group says it is important for lawyers to speak up if they believe Trump’s actions are unconstitutional.
“There is a deep-seated concern and uneasiness in conservative legal circles with the president’s attacks on our institutions, including the press and the Department of Justice, and a belief that conservative lawyers are not speaking up enough,” said group member John Bellinger, a former legal adviser for the State Department and National Security Council.
