A statement on the Mueller Report and other things


Last fall, I joined a group of conservative and libertarian lawyers to form Checks and Balances to speak out in defense of constitutional governance, traditional legal norms and the rule of law.

I have not blogged much about organization's activities and efforts here, as I've figured those who are interested could check out the C&B website or Twitter feed.

That said, I figured some may be interested in the statement several of us issued on April 23 on the Mueller report.

In addition, C&B members Donald Ayer, Stuart Gerson, and Paul Rosenzweig wrote this op-ed for USA Today explaining how the Mueller Report's contents demonstrate the extent of the President's contempt for the rule of law (and the role of lawyers).
