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.
PATHETIC: Republican Senators Propose Replacing ‘Columbus Day’ with ‘Juneteenth’ as National Holiday
With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?
Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and James Lankford (R-OK) have proposed a legislative amendment that would replace “Columbus Day” as a federal holiday with “Juneteenth,” in another capitulation to the far-left mob.
Johnson and Lankford proposed the amendment to legislation proposed by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) that would make Juneteenth into a national holiday. The lawmakers felt the bill did not go far enough in virtue-signaling for liberals so they decided to tack on their proposed amendment.
The proposal would amend Section 6103(a) of title 5, United States Code by making June 19th an annual federal holiday, and striking Columbus Day, which takes place every second Monday in October, from the record. Juneteenth refers to the date that a town’s slaves learned they were freed, and was not celebrated much outside of Texas until this year.
Black Lives Matter (BLM) terrorists have pushed Juneteenth in order to guilt white people regarding their supposed role in the enslavement of blacks. It goes along with the communist tropes of structural racism and white privilege that are regularly used to attack the Constitution and rule of law.
“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and [BLM co-founder Alicia Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” said BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors.
“We are super versed on all sorts of ideological theories, and I think that what we really try to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” she added.

“[The whites] lasting monument was the destruction and enslavement of two races of people,” wrote Nikole Hannah-Jones, whose erroneous “1619 Project” won her a Pulitzer Prize.
“The descendants of these savage people pump drugs and guns into the Black community, pack Black people into the squalor of segregated urban ghettos and continue to be bloodsuckers in our community,” Hannah-Jones added.
BLM’s official website confirms that the movement is focused “on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.”
Johnson, Lankford, and other Republican cowards are appeasing the likes of these people as they wage a cultural revolution to destroy America. These Benedict Arnolds will be remembered by history in a worse light than the Marxists for folding at a time when strong leadership was needed the most.
