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.
HUGE: Mitt Romney Spokesman Reveals He’s Not an Automatic ‘No’ On SCOTUS Nominee Confirmation
Romney might vote to confirm a nominee.
Mitt Romney isn’t an automatic ‘no’ vote for a Supreme Court nominee in the Senate, contrary to initial reports suggesting that he would be.
Initial reports- just hours after Ginsberg’s death- from an anonymous(as usual) source claiming to be a Romney ‘insider’ had suggested that the Utah Senator was already planning to refuse a confirmation vote for a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

Senator Romney’s communications director, Liz Johnson, refuted the report just hours after former Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis claimed to have been privy to it.

A similar report had come out at the time of Ginsberg’s death, claiming that Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley was also planning to vote no on a potential Trump administration nominee. This report that was also promptly corrected by a Grassley spokesperson.
This is a game changer for the potential confirmation prospects of a Trump administration Supreme Court nominee. It leaves Maine’s Susan Collins and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski as the only outstanding Republican ‘no’ votes on a nominee, hypothetically opening up a possibility of 51 votes(if every single Democrat votes against a SCOTUS nominee) to confirm a judge in the Senate.
It’s even possible to confirm a SCOTUS judge with fifty votes and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker, but an extra potential vote would give Senate Republicans breathing room for error.
Romney is known for his liberal sympathies, but he has not come out in opposition to a SCOTUS nominee as of yet. He’ll doubtlessly receive a load of invective and hate from the progressive left for refusing to instantly ice a new judge, especially if he actually votes in favor of the confirmation of the eventual nominee.
