A new statement from Checks & Balances, a group of high-profile conservative lawyers, is urging Congress to “conduct further investigation” into behavior detailed in the Mueller report that is “starkly inconsistent with the president’s constitutional duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed.’’’

The 11 signatories of the statement posted Tuesday included several Big Law attorneys: Peter Keisler of Sidley Austin; King & Spalding’s Marisa Maleck, a former law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas; and John Bellinger III of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer. The letter came with a disclaimer: “Each of us speaks and acts solely in our individual capacities, and our views should not be attributed to any organization we may be affiliated with.”
