Lawyer George Conway is lobbing criticism again at President Donald Trump, arguing in a scathing Washington Post op-ed Wednesday that the president has practically invited impeachment proceedings to begin. 

In the opinion article, written with former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal, Conway, the husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, argued that Trump had provided “direct evidence of his contempt toward the most foundational precept of our democracy ― that no person, not even the president, is above the law.”

Conway and Katyal pointed to a brief Trump filed on Monday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that seeks to block a House Oversight Committee subpoena of his financial records from his accounting firm, Mazars USA.

Within the brief, Trump’s legal team contends that Congress is not allowed to investigate a sitting president except potentially through an impeachment proceeding.

“It’s a spectacularly anti-constitutional brief, and anyone who harbors such attitudes toward our Constitution’s architecture is not fit for office,” they wrote. “Trump’s brief is nothing if not an invitation to commencing impeachment proceedings that, for reasons set out in the Mueller report, should have already commenced.”
