While his opposition to Trump based on the contents of the Mueller report may have come as a shock to some, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has actually been plotting to impeach the President for years. This is evidenced from comments he made in 2017, after disgraced FBI spook James Comey was dismissed.
Following Comey’s firing, 15 pages of dubious documents were released publicly in an attempt to shame and embarrass the President.
Comey wrote these memos because he was allegedly so unnerved about Trump’s erratic behavior in the White House. Contents of the memos included Trump allegedly indicating the investigation of former Secretary of Defense Michael Flynn constituted overreach.
“He said that although Flynn ‘hadn’t done anything wrong’ in his call with the Russians (a point he made at least two more times in the conversation), he had to let him go because he misled the Vice President,” Comey wrote in a memo.
According to Comey, Trump allegedly said to him: “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
Amash indicated that he felt this comment made by Trump meant he should be impeached.
“I think it’s pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey,” Amash said, indicating he trusted the disgraced bureaucrat more than the GOP leader.
The allegations reportedly contained in the memo are incredibly serious. Mr. Comey also needs to testify in open session ASAP. https://t.co/OjZIvpRsxm

The Comey memo controversy quickly fizzled out, and Amash missed that opportunity to go after the President. Following the release of the Mueller report – which completely cleared Trump of any Russian collusion – Amash finally realized his long-standing plan to lead the charge for impeachment.
Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

Amash re-hashed the benign revelation from Comey memo in another string of tweets in favor of impeaching the President that he released earlier today.
1. Trump asked the FBI director to stop investigating Michael Flynn, who had been his campaign adviser and national security adviser, and who had already committed a crime by lying to the FBI.

Trump called Amash a “loser” following the Congressman’s push for impeachment, and two conservative primary challengers who have already announced that they will be opposing the ‘Never Trump’ Congressman next year to prove the President’s criticism as correct.
Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is

Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
