Lawyer George Conway along with law professor Neal Katyal penned an op-ed published in the Washington Post Wednesday calling for impeachment proceedings against President Trump to begin.

Katyal and Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and a frequent critic of Trump on Twitter, say Trump's court filing arguing he cannot be investigated by Congress is the most recent indicator that lawmakers should begin impeachment proceedings.

Trump "filed a brief in the nation's second-most-important court that takes the position that Congress cannot investigate the president, except possibly in impeachment proceedings. It's a spectacularly anti-constitutional brief, and anyone who harbors such attitudes toward our Constitution's architecture is not fit for office," the two men wrote.

The two lawyers wrote the brief is "nothing if not an invitation to commencing impeachment proceedings that, for reasons set out in the Mueller report, should have already commenced."

Conway and Katyal are referring to an appeals brief filed by Trump's lawyers in the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that argues against the House Committee on Oversight and Reform's ongoing probe into Trump's business ventures and whether he broke the law by committing financial and tax fraud.

The brief reportedly says Congress is "trying to prove that the President broke the law" and that that's something Congress can't do, because it's "an exercise of law enforcement authority that the Constitution reserves to the executive branch."

The drumbeat of Democratic lawmakers calling for impeachment proceedings to begin has been growing, particularly increasing after special counsel Robert Mueller gave his only public comments regarding the findings of his support.

To this point, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has tempered the conversation about impeaching Trump, pointing to the lack of Republican support outside of Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) who has been the only Republican to public support opening impeachment proceedings.

"Congress could investigate Trump's finances in an impeachment proceeding, but it can do so without launching the formal process of impeachment," they write, concluding that "Trump's brief can be construed as an invitation to commence impeachment proceedings. In those proceedings, Trump's attitudes toward our Constitution's checks and balances, in addition to evidence of obstruction of justice, must play a key role."

Trump says impeachment would help him win re-election.
Trump also said that Pelosi "feels that I will win much easier" if the Democrats go ahead with impeachment proceedings.
