Read our guest essay in The New York Times by J. Michael Luttig, Barbara Comstock, and George Conway: “America Needs a Pro-Democracy Conservative Legal Establishment.”
In it they write:
“American democracy, the Constitution and the rule of law are the righteous causes of our times, and the nation’s legal profession is obligated to support them. But with the acquiescence of the conservative legal movement, these pillars of our system of governing are becoming increasingly imperiled, and the dangers will only grow should Donald Trump be returned to the White House next November …
We must rebuild a conservative legal movement that supports and defends American democracy, the Constitution and the rule of law.”
As the authors write, the events of the past several years have shown that many of the existing players and institutions have “failed to respond in this period of crisis.” That’s why we started the Society, to push back on these failures and create a pro-Constitution alternative.
