George Conway III is at it again.
 
The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said he would rather “move to Australia” than to vote for Donald Trump again.
 
The Filipino American lawyer also spearheaded the formation of a new legal group, called Checks and Balances, providing a platform for other conservative lawyers to voice their opposition to policies of Donald Trump that violate “timeless principles” and constitutional norms.
 
Conway was being interviewed by Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” during which he confessed, “I don’t feel comfortable being a Republican anymore.”
 
Despite the prominent role played by his wife in the Trump administration, earlier this year, he left the GOP. “I think the Republican Party has become something of a personality cult.”
 
The political evolution of Conway began at the start of Trump’s first year as the White House occupant when he discouraged any consideration for a role in the new administration.
 
Since January of this year, Conway has been more open in criticizing Trump. Using social media and writing opeds, Conway is no longer hiding the fact that he’s not a fan of Trump”s attacks the justice system, especially the Department of Justice, the firing of former FBI director James Comey and the investigation into Russian interference with U.S. elections.
 
The formation of Checks and Balances was another act to counter the legal excesses of the Trump administration. The new group of conservative and libertarian lawyers from influential Federalist Society, was formed to highlight the Trump administration’s perceived flouting of constitutional and legal norms, reports the New York Times.
 
Below is the mission statement of Checks and Balances:
