PUSHBACK – Conservative and libertarian lawyer group Checks and Balances has condemned President Trump’s racist tweets that said four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back” to their countries, Mike Scarcella reports. Describing in a statement the president’s tweets as a “rejection of those Founding principles of our Nation,” they added, “We refuse to share the silence of most of the Republican caucus in Congress, whose timidity in the face of this abhorrent behavior reflects the debased politics of the day.” In addition to George Conway at Wachtell, other signatories include John Bellinger, former State Department legal adviser in the George W. Bush administration now at Arnold & Porter, and Kirkland & Ellis partner Andrew Sagor, a former State Department official.
