Amash Claims Trump Campaign Committed Crimes, Doesn’t Specify Which Ones
A Republican Congressman from Michigan once again took to Twitter to bash President Donald J. Trump Monday, this time accusing Trump’ campaign of committing crimes.
“In fact, there were many crimes revealed by the investigation, some of which were charged, and some of which were not but are nonetheless described in Mueller’s report,” Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said.

Saturday, Amash became a Democrat darling and Republican pariah when he claimed that Attorney General William P. Barr misrepresented what was in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on Russian “collusion,” and that the report contained impeachable offenses.
The Congressman did not, however say what the misrepresentations were (which might be a moot point anyway, given that the report is public) and did not say what the impeachable offenses were. Similarly, in his attack on Monday, he did not detail which crimes the Trump campaign allegedly committed.
On the heels of Amash’s Saturday Tweetstorm, a primary opponent wasted no time in announcing his candidacy to represent Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District.
Big League Politics reported:
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) earned massive praise from the leftist resistance this weekend, after the GOP’s most prominent ‘Never Trumper’ formally endorsed impeachment of President Donald Trump in a series of tweets.
While Amash may have curried favor with liberals who oppose the President, a fervor is growing against him within the Michigan Republican Party. State Rep. Jim Lower (R-Greenville) wasted no time in announcing his primary challenge, and he believes his experience in Michigan state politics gives him the pedigree to mount a credible challenge to Amash.
“I am a Pro-Trump, Pro-Life, Pro-Jobs, Pro-2nd Amendment, Pro-Family Values Republican. Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trump’s impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents,” Lower said in a press release announcing his candidacy.
He continued: “Amash has not only failed to support President Trump as the President works to make the United States stronger and safer, he has now united with radical liberals like Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit) to try and bring down our President. He must be replaced and I am going to do it.”
