Justin Amash: ‘Highly Incriminating Transcript’ of Ukraine Phone Call Justifies Trump’s Impeachment

Amash is to the left of most Democrats on the issue of impeachment.

Palestinian-American Congressman Justin Amash (I-MI) continues to wage a legislative Jihad against President Donald Trump, claiming that the contents of the rough transcript of his phone call with Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky released earlier today were “highly incriminating.”

Amash misquoted the President and deliberately misrepresented the rough transcript, perhaps in an act of Taqiyyah, to bolster his case to impeach the President.

In the actual transcript, Trump merely expressed concerns about Cloudflare, the private security contractor that investigated the DNC’s hacked servers, and Vice President Joe Biden’s corrupt activities that he admitted publicly.

“I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it,” Trump said to Zelensky about Crowdstrike.

“I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike … I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it,” Trump added.

“There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me,” Trump said to Zelensky about Biden.

Because he is pushing for accountability, Amash wants Trump’s head on a pike. This is consistent with the behavior of Amash in recent months, as the Republican turncoat has become a cheerleader for impeachment alongside the likes of Islamic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

It has long been rumored that Amash is building his case for a presidential run in 2020, hoping to peel voters away from President Trump in the crucial battleground state of Michigan. He has flirted with the idea openly with the fake news boosting his national recognition at every turn.

“There’s no shortage of possibilities, and I just don’t want to rule things out. I think about them and make decisions according to what I think will make a difference,” Amash said to reporters when asked about the possibility of a presidential run.

“And, you know, you also only run for things if you feel like there’s a good possibility of winning,” Amash added. “So you have to weigh all these factors.”

The Libertarian Party, which became a national punchline in 2016 for the gaffe-plagued run of former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, has indicated that they would likely welcome Amash with open arms.

“It’s definitely a path that seems like it’s open to him,” Libertarian Party Chairman Nick Sarwark said of Amash’s presidential run in his party.

“There is excitement. There is an organized effort by people within the party to draft him, to encourage him to jump over and get into the race. I haven’t really seen that kind of heavy draft effort since probably people tried to get Ron Paul to run as a Libertarian again in ’08,” Sarwark added.

Amash will likely announce his spoiler campaign for the presidency in the upcoming months, with the hopes of giving the country back to Democrats due to his intense, personal hatred of President Trump and his “America First” agenda.

Congress Uses Fake Russia-Taliban Report as Excuse to Keep U.S. Troops in Afghanistan

Another victory for the war party.

Published

Democrats are seizing upon a fake news report alleging that Russia has funded Taliban mercenaries to kill U.S. soldiers in order to make it more difficult for troops to be pulled from Afghanistan, thus undermining President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

The House Armed Services Committee voted on Wednesday to make it more difficult for Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan. It would force several certifications to be met before Trump could bring troops home. Republicans in the committee joined the Democrats to undermine Trump with the approval of this National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) amendment.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), the neoconservative who supports Bush-era globalism, said the measure “lays out, in a very responsible level of specificity, what is going to be required if we are going to in fact make decisions about troop levels based on conditions on the ground and based on what’s required for our own security, not based on political timelines.” It was approved by a 45-11 vote.

The amendment requires an assessment to determine whether or not “state actors have provided any incentives to the Taliban, their affiliates, or other foreign terrorist organizations for attacks against United States, coalition, or Afghan security forces or civilians in Afghanistan in the last two years, including the details of any attacks believed to have been connected with such incentives” before troops can be removed from the country.

Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) bragged about how the measure will make sure the U.S. does not leave the region and more American lives are put in jeopardy for a war effort that is largely recognized to be a lost cause.

“There’s been bipartisan criticism of what a weak deal [Trump] got with the Taliban, a deal that is already falling apart,” Moulton said. “Now we learned that he was making this deal at the same time as there were bounties on the heads of American troops, American sons and daughters. We clearly need more oversight over what the president is doing in Afghanistan.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is the most eloquent voice for an “America First” foreign policy in the House, opposed the measure because of its obvious implications against peace.

“A great nation does not force the next generation to fight their wars, and that’s what we’ve done in Afghanistan,” Gaetz said. “I think the best day to have not had the war in Afghanistan was when we started it, and the next best day is tomorrow.

“I don’t think there’s ever a bad day to end the war in Afghanistan,” he added. “Our generation is weary of this and tired of this.”

The defense industry is pushing the Russia bogeyman yet again, in order to create xenophobic outrage and a pretense to keep troops occupying in the region. The Pentagon has reported that Russia is trying to expedite the removal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, but they are painting this news as if it is a bad thing.

“As of February, the Russian government was working with the central government, regional countries, and the Taliban to gain increased influence in Afghanistan, expedite a U.S. military withdrawal, and address security challenges that might arise from a withdrawal,” a report from the Pentagon said.

“Russia has politically supported the Taliban to cultivate influence with the group, limit the Western military presence, and encourage counter ISIS operations, although Russia publicly denies their involvement,” they added.

The political establishment, including the military-industrial complex, is pulling out all the stops to sabotage President Trump and deprive him of achieving his goals before November’s election.
