Career Politician Justin Amash Stabs GOP in Back, Now Wants To Impeach Trump
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is doubling-down on his opposition to President Donald Trump in the aftermath of the release of the Mueller Report.
Despite the fact that it is widely recognized that the Mueller report exonerated Trump of being a Russian agent, Amash officially endorsed impeaching the President on his Twitter account today.
He released a lengthy Twitter thread explaining his mindset behind supporting impeachment, which can be seen in full here:
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 refused to endorse impeachment of former President Barack Hussein Obama while he was in office, but now publicly supports the impeachment of President Trump despite the fact that the Mueller investigation cleared him of colluding with Russia.
Sen. Rand Paul’s chief strategist Doug Stafford liked the following tweet critical of Amash’s rant, suggesting that Paul and his team understand that the Congressman from Grand Rapids has lost his way:
Amash doesn’t offer a single example of Barr misleading the public–subtly or otherwise. Barr never took a position whether House couldn’t/shouldn’t impeach Trump. He truthful laid out findings (no criminal conspiracy) & his own thoughts on obstruction. Where’s misrepresentation? https://t.co/HHDsbhpP1D

Amash is flirting with a run for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination in 2020. He voted against a resolution condemning illegal immigrants being allowed to vote earlier this year and supported the federal funding of transgender elective surgery for military personnel.
Amash is receiving gushing headlines from the fake news media and Soros-funded propaganda outlets due to his tireless opposition to Trump. He joined with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to push a measure blocking Trump’s emergency measures declaration over the unprecedented migrant crisis at the U.S. southern border.
Veterans rights activist Tom Norton has already filed to primary challenge Amash in next year’s election with more opponents likely to come. The Libertarian Party may be Amash’s last refuge, as he repeats the Democratic Party spin regarding the Mueller report.
