Justin Amash Gets His Bluff Called, Votes Against Moving Impeachment Resolution Forward

This loud mouthed representative showed he is full of hot air.

Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) has emerged as one of the loudest proponents for impeaching President Donald Trump, but it seems the turncoat legislator is all talk. He voted against an impeachment resolution on Wednesday, as the measure was killed overwhelmingly in the House.

Amash and 137 Democrats voted with House Republicans to table the impeachment resolution filed by Rep. Al Green (D-TX), who believes that Trump should be removed from office mainly because of some Twitter posts that he finds objectionable.

“President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color,” Green said on the House floor Tuesday.

“Donald John Trump, by causing such harm to the society of the United States, is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment, trial and removal from office,” he added.

Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to support the measure, claiming that the idea of impeachment is getting in the way of their real investigation of the President. She is not happy with Green for pushing the issue.

“We have six committees working on following the facts in terms of any abuse of power, obstruction of justice and the rest that the president may have engaged in,” she said at a news conference. “That is the serious path we’re on — not that Mr. Green is not serious, but we’ll deal with that on the floor.”

Amash has never had any legislative accomplishments as a career Washington D.C. politician, passing exactly zero bills during his time in Congress. His modus operandi is making statements that will get his name in the press while deriding his colleagues with real legislative achievements.

“From a principled moral position she is making a mistake. From a strategic position she is making a mistake. If she believes as I do that there’s impeachable conduct in [the Mueller report], then she should say so,” Amash said to CNN’s Jake Tapper, urging Pelosi to support impeachment.

“She should tell the American people we’re going to move forward with impeachment hearings and potentially articles of impeachment,” he added.

However, Amash voted with Pelosi to table the impeachment resolution when the rubber hit the road. He is apparently not too concerned with actually impeaching Trump, but just wants to complain about the issue in order to build a national following with the ‘Never Trump’ resistance.

He continues to virtue signal on Twitter against the President, rarely focusing on any other issue than his hatred for Trump:

Amash is thinking of mounting a third-party presidential campaign in 2020. He has no chance to win, but he could help the Democrats by drawing votes away from Trump in the crucial battleground state of Michigan.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April

It’s a aspiration, not a plan.

Published

House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.

Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”

Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.

“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.

Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.

It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
