Amash Claims, Without Evidence, That Many of His GOP Colleagues Support Impeaching Trump Too

He refuses to name names, but assures town hall attendees that “a lot” of his fellow Republican House members supports impeachment.

Yesterday, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) took the stage at a town hall in Grand Rapids, MI. He criticized President Trump frequently during the event before a selected audience while promoting his own constitutional voting record.

There was a tense confrontation between Amash and a pro-Trump woman who was hectored by the hostile audience and barely able to raise her point between the jeers:

One of the most telling snippets from the town hall was Amash’s assertion that he has plenty of backup in Congress on the Republican side of the aisle for his impeachment push.

Amash said to the audience that they wouldn’t believe how many of his Republican colleagues support impeachment based on the contents of the Mueller report, which cleared President Trump of any Russian collusion.

He then patted himself on the back for his bravery in supporting Trump’s impeachment.

“If you have a society where all we care about is that the other side is bad and therefore we don’t have to do what’s right, that society will break down and you will have no liberty,” Amash said.

Then Amash implied that impeachment was the right choice “for those of you who care about liberty [and] the Constitution.” He advocated for Republicans to reach out and “care” about what the Democrats are doing.

Amash framed his fight as a matter of ethics. By ignoring the gross overreaches of the Mueller investigation and instead focusing on the President’s alleged obstruction of this unprecedented deep state overreach, he claims he is fulfilling his oath of office.

“I think it’s really important that we do our job as a Congress, that we not allow misconduct to go undeterred, that we not just say someone can violate the public trust and that there are no consequences to it,” Amash said.

He urged everyone to read the Mueller report, a biased political document written by a career federal bureaucrat who lied about WMDs in Iraq as FBI director, and talked about the document as if it was sacrosanct.

“I’m confident if you read volume two, you will be appalled at much of the conduct, and I was appalled by it,” Amash said.

“I think we cannot let conduct like that go unchecked. Congress has a duty to keep the President in check, and it is a difficult process,” he added.

Amash noted that the impeachment process is not easy, but would continue to lead on the issue regardless. His position on impeachment is to the left of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

“We owe it to the American people to represent them, to ensure that the people we have in office are doing the right thing, are of good character, aren’t violating the public trust,” Amash said.

That clip can be seen here:

“I will always stand up for liberty and stand up for our Constitution,” Amash said in his conclusion.

His lip service was particularly enjoyed by the far left, who are enjoying the division that Amash is causing among his Republican ranks. Several resistance members showed up with signs outside of the town hall to support Amash’s stand against his party and Trump’s MAGA agenda.

After Facebook Censors ANTIFA Warning Video, Georgia Congressional Front-Runner Doubles Down with TV Ad Buy

Marjorie Greene will not stop exposing ANTIFA no matter the consequences.

Georgia GOP Congressional candidate Marjorie Greene is doubling down after Facebook censored her video calling out ANTIFA domestic terrorists and refused to allow her to promote it on their monopoly platform.

“This content also violates our violence and incitement policy within our Community Standards. You can read more about that here. This post will be removed,“ Facebook told Greene’s campaign after they attempted to promote a video about the far-left terror group.

This is the video released by Greene that Facebook does not want you to see:

Even though social media has censored her message, she is continuing to push the message about the evils of ANTIFA, a group which has supplanted ISIS as the top threat to the American national security. She released an explosive new ad that could potentially potentially millions of Georgians before the upcoming primary election next week.

“ANTIFA terrorists have declared war on America,” Greene says in the ad. “Rioting, looting and burning our cities. George Soros, Hollywood elites, and Joe Biden’s staff are funding ANTIFA.”

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The full ad can be seen here:

Moreso than perhaps any other candidate running for office in the United States, Greene’s messaging is congruent with the White House with regards to ANTIFA. President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr recently announced that they would be treating ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, a move that Big League Politics has been advocating for years.

“It is time to stop watching the violence and to confront and stop it. The continued violence and destruction of property endangers the lives and livelihoods of others, and interferes with the rights of peaceful protesters, as well as all other citizens,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement about the violence.

“It also undercuts the urgent work that needs to be done – through constructive engagement between affected communities and law enforcement leaders – to address legitimate grievances. Preventing reconciliation and driving us apart is the goal of these radical groups, and we cannot let them succeed,” he continued.

Greene is running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 14th Congressional district against several competitors. The primary election is set to take place on June 9.
