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.
‘Let Them Be Free!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Urges Trump to Pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange for Exposing ‘the Crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State’
This is what real conservative leadership is all about.
Soon-to-be Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia is joining a movement urging President Donald Trump to pardon NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange for opposing deep state corruption.
Greene made the declaration with a Twitter post on Thanksgiving night:
Each risked his life to expose the crimes of Barack Obama and the Deep State against the American people.

Greene made the comment in reference to a renewed push from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) for President Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange.
“Since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state,” the iconoclastic progressive lawmaker wrote in a tweet.
“Brave whistleblowers exposing lies & illegal actions in our government must be protected,” Gabbard wrote in a Twitter post accompanying a video recording earlier this year. “Join me and urge Congress: Pass my bipartisan legislation (HRes1162, HRes1175, HR8452) calling for charges against @snowden & Assange to be dropped & to reform the Espionage Act.”
Big League Politics has reported extensively on Greene’s bold approach that completely rejects the conventional wisdom of the Washington D.C. swamp on a wide variety of issues, particularly foreign policy:
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez tried to get sassy on Twitter in light of the recent drama regarding election regularities taking place across the nation.
Due to this, President Donald Trump has not conceded the election and is waiting for the courts to settle any kind of irregularities at polling locations in key swing states. This obviously has Democrats and their media allies fuming over Trump’s steadfast devotion for the rule of law and election integrity.
One of the most outspoken critics of Trump’s decision to not concede has been AOC. She tweeted on November 10, 2020, “I hope people realize that the same Republicans who are refusing to acknowledge the results of our elections also champion disastrous foreign policy claiming they’re ‘bringing democracy’ to other nations.”
AOC’s comment was met with immediate backlash after incoming Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene offered her two cents on the matter. The new congresswoman for Georgia’s 4th District tweeted “You voted for @JoeBiden who voted for the Iraq War, which cost America trillions of dollars and thousands of lives.”
… Greene was specifically calling out AOC for her hypocritical behavior of voting for a candidate that was one of the most seasoned proponents of foreign adventuring and a big booster of the defense industry. Certain officials from defense contractors such as Raytheon CEO Gregory Hayes have stated that a Biden presidency would not entertain any form of defense cuts whatsoever. Biden is the consummate political insider and AOC’s support for him belies her marketing as an outsider.
Greene is showing how the Republican Party should be shifting with Trump at the helm. Greene’s rise represents a populist, anti-establishment GOP that rejects neocon usurpers like former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
