Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus when it formed in 2015, but the organization that he has been apart of since its inception can no longer stand with the anti-Trump Congressman.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the current Chairman of the Freedom Caucus, admitted today that Amash will not be receiving much support from the GOP after siding with the Democrats and the deep state to give bipartisan cover to the ‘Russian collusion’ witch hunt against President Trump.
Rep. Mark Meadows, a close ally of Trump’s and chairman of House Freedom Caucus, said Amash would have a hard time getting support for re-election.
“Anytime that you come out against the president of your own party makes it very difficult to support in any primary challenge.”

Furthermore, Amash has become such a political liability that Meadows believes that ejecting Amash from the caucus has become a real possibility.
Asked if they would remove him from the House Freedom Caucus, Meadows says: “I think the caucus will be talking about it tonight” but he suggested they may not take that step in removing him because the group represents “a variety of opinions and that’s what makes us strong.”

Amash has not been a particularly active member of the Freedom Caucus in the age of Trump. He has been offended by their support of the President and rarely attends their meetings any longer.
“From the time the president was elected, I was urging them to remain independent and to be willing to push back against the president where they thought he was wrong,” Amash said to CNN of the Freedom Caucus. “They’ve decided to stick with the president time and again, even where they disagree with him privately.”
“They are good, kind people,” Amash added. “I may have my disagreements with some of the current approach, but I’d still take them over pretty much anyone in Congress.”
Although Amash may maintain a good rapport with members of the House Freedom Caucus, it will be difficult for them to support his bid for Congress. He doubled down on his impeachment position earlier today.
People who say there were no underlying crimes and therefore the president could not have intended to illegally obstruct the investigation—and therefore cannot be impeached—are resting their argument on several falsehoods:

Two primary challengers have already emerged to face Amash in Michigan’s third Congressional district, and more may follow in the weeks to come.
Pelosi May Try to Impeach President Trump AGAIN For Nominating a SCOTUS Judge Before Election
Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.
Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.
Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

“Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.
President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.
If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.
Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
