a woman wearing a red dress© Provided by The Hill White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband on Monday penned an article defending the constitutionality of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian election meddling.

The piece titled, "The Terrible Arguments Against the Constitutionality of the Mueller Investigation," takes aim at President Trump's recent Twitter attacks on the probe, in which the president argues the investigation is unconstitutional.

Conway points out the initial spelling errors in the tweet and said he most likely got his argument from conservative legal scholar Steven Calabresi.

"Unfortunately for the president, these writings are no more correct than the spelling in his original tweet. And in light of the president's apparent embrace of Calabresi's conclusions, it is well worth taking a close look at Calabresi's argument in support of those conclusions," he writes.

Calabresi has argued that Mueller's probe is "null and void" because it violates the Appointments Clause of the Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 2.

"The 'constitutional' arguments made against the special counsel do not meet that standard and had little more rigor than the tweet that promoted them. Such a lack of rigor, sadly, has been a disturbing trend in much of the politically charged public discourse about the law lately, and one that lawyers-regardless of their politics-owe a duty to abjure," Conway said.

This is not the first time Conway has criticized his wife's boss.

Conway previously shared commentary by a Politico reporter critiquing Trump's claim on the constituinality of the probe, saying: "If this is true, you'd think Trump's ex-campaign chairman would've made this argument since he's facing a potential life sentence. But he hasn't."

He added his own commentary, writing: "And if this were true, you'd think this conservative Republican-controlled Department of Justice would revoke or decline to utilize the Special Counsel regulations. But it hasn't."

Giuliani says his demand for Mueller probe to be suspended was for show .
President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani said on Monday that his call last week for special counsel Robert Mueller's probe to be suspended was just for show. "That's what I'm supposed to do," Giuliani said in an interview with Politico. "What am I supposed to say? That they should investigate him forever? Sorry, I'm not a sucker."The former New York City mayor had called on on the Justice Department last week to end Mueller's investigation and claimed that the department's inspector general's (IG) report on the FBI completely undercut the justification.
