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.

HUGE: Mitt Romney Spokesman Reveals He’s Not an Automatic ‘No’ On SCOTUS Nominee Confirmation

Romney might vote to confirm a nominee.

Mitt Romney Votes With Democrats Against Wall

Mitt Romney isn’t an automatic ‘no’ vote for a Supreme Court nominee in the Senate, contrary to initial reports suggesting that he would be.

Initial reports- just hours after Ginsberg’s death- from an anonymous(as usual) source claiming to be a Romney ‘insider’ had suggested that the Utah Senator was already planning to refuse a confirmation vote for a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

Senator Romney’s communications director, Liz Johnson, refuted the report just hours after former Utah State Senator Jim Dabakis claimed to have been privy to it.

A similar report had come out at the time of Ginsberg’s death, claiming that Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley was also planning to vote no on a potential Trump administration nominee. This report that was also promptly corrected by a Grassley spokesperson.

This is a game changer for the potential confirmation prospects of a Trump administration Supreme Court nominee. It leaves Maine’s Susan Collins and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski as the only outstanding Republican ‘no’ votes on a nominee, hypothetically opening up a possibility of 51 votes(if every single Democrat votes against a SCOTUS nominee) to confirm a judge in the Senate.

It’s even possible to confirm a SCOTUS judge with fifty votes and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker, but an extra potential vote would give Senate Republicans breathing room for error.

Romney is known for his liberal sympathies, but he has not come out in opposition to a SCOTUS nominee as of yet. He’ll doubtlessly receive a load of invective and hate from the progressive left for refusing to instantly ice a new judge, especially if he actually votes in favor of the confirmation of the eventual nominee.
