House Freedom Caucus Leader Says Amash is Toast for Pushing Trump Impeachment

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.

Furthermore, Amash has become such a political liability that Meadows believes that ejecting Amash from the caucus has become a real possibility.

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.

Two primary challengers have already emerged to face Amash in Michigan’s third Congressional district, and more may follow in the weeks to come.
