Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) explained the legislative philosophy that he has adhered to throughout his years in Congress during a constituent town hall yesterday in Grand Rapids, and it’s arguably as stunning as his impeachment push.
Amash actually believes that he’s more successful than his peers despite never getting any legislation passed.
After receiving a question asking him to prove that he has “done things” while in Congress, Amash was unable to give any concrete examples. He instead explained that his message – the core of which is now arguing in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump – is what matters, not his actual achievements.
“I’ve spent a lot of time on civil liberties issues, particularly FISA reform and Section 215, which is the metadata collection,” Amash said, despite the fact that he is supporting the biggest FISA abuse in history by pushing the Russian collusion hoax and the illegal spying that underlined the investigation.
Amash gave himself credit for introducing bills and taking them to the House floor for debates before admitting that none of them have ever passed.
“We’ve had a lot of those contests, and yes, we have come out on the bottom,” Amash said.
He blamed a conspiracy of Republicans and Democrats working in tandem to make sure that he fails at getting anything accomplished in real terms as a Congressman.
“I think that it’s a false premise to assume that because a member of Congress passed a particular piece of legislation or is… getting their amendments on the floor that that member of Congress is accomplishing a lot,” Amash said.
He explained that his true value is getting his message out, which includes supporting Democratic-led efforts to impeach Trump despite the fact that he was ultimately cleared of any Russian collusion by the Mueller report.
“I think more important than any of that is having a member of Congress who’s talking about partisanship, talking about the issues that matter, trying to inform the public about what’s going on,” Amash said.
He believes that his social media posts and other sanctimonious diatribes are what’s truly important, not so much actually getting things accomplished for his constituents.
“I can get a message out there that resonates with people here and across the country… and that’s more important than any legislative thing than I can do in Congress,” Amash explained.
Amash has been working overtime getting his message out to the public in recent weeks, and it has been almost solely focused on ginning up support to impeach Trump.
After FBI spook Robert Mueller announced his special counsel investigation was completed earlier today with no evidence produced showing Trump being guilty of any Russian collusion, Amash still supports Congress taking action to impeach the President.

Instead of working to get legislation passed, Amash will continue to use his Congressional seat as a bully pulpit to undermine his own political party’s chances at retaining the presidency heading into 2020.
House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop
Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.
House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.
They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).
“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”
“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.
However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.
Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:
Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.
Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.
According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.
Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…
President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.
“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”
Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
