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.

The group also includes, Tom Ridge, a former Pennsylvania governor and one-time secretary of Homeland Security; professors Orinn Kerr and Jonathan Adler; Peter Keisler, acting attorney general in the Bush administration; and attorney Lori Meyer, who is married to Federalist Society President Eugene B. Meyer.

“We believe in the rule of law, the power of truth, the independence of the criminal justice system, the imperative of individual rights and the necessity of civil discourse,” the group‘s mission statement said. “We believe these principles apply regardless of the party or persons in power. We believe in ‘a government of laws, not of men.’”

Last week, George Conway blasted Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as interim attorney general, calling it unconstitutional.
