After news broke yesterday that Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) would be removed from the House Oversight Committee this week after turning his back on the Republican Party, Amash decided to get ahead of the issue, leaving the committee before he could get the boot.
“Today, I sent the attached letter to Republican leaders as formal notification that I am withdrawing my membership in the House Republican Conference and, consistent with House rules, resigning from the Committee on Oversight and Reform,” Amash tweeted on Monday morning.

He also posted a letter that he submitted to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) formalizing his resignation.
Amash has recently used his post on the Oversight Committee to help Democratic Party witch hunts against President Donald Trump. He supported Democratic overreach to censure Attorney General William Barr and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross based on their refusal to submit privileged documents regarding the proposed citizenship question on the 2020 census.
“The Democrats have continued to attack this administration on dubious grounds, and they aren’t going to let the facts get in the way of their own concocted stories,” Ross said of the Democrat-led stunt against the Trump administration that Amash joined.
“By holding a contempt vote, the committee has already demonstrated its scorn for the Constitution, continually refusing to engage in the constitutionally-mandated accommodation process. That is far more serious than the empty stunt the committee performed today,” he added.
Amash also voted with Democrats on the Oversight Committee to subpoena White House counselor Kellyanne Conway over alleged violations of the Hatch Act.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Freedom Caucus pointed out the ridiculousness of the effort against Conway by Amash and his Democrat counterparts.
Americans hate unfairness.

After being forced out of the Oversight Committee, Amash will have to rely on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to assign him to another committee. Considering how useful he has been to the Democrats in their war against Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda, it may not be out of the question.
“He votes more with Nancy Pelosi than he ever votes with me. It’s a question whether he’s even in our Republican Conference as a whole,” House Minority Leader McCarthy said about Amash in May.
Amash, who has emerged as the leading cheerleader for impeaching Trump, will likely continue nestling up to Democrats as he continues his campaign to sabotage the President for self-serving political gain.

HUH? Matt Gaetz Helps Disgraced Globalist RINO Scott Turner Attempt Return to Congress
Gaetz’s association with this RINO is worrisome.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has gained a reputation as a Congressman who embodies “America First” principles, but he will be fundraising for a disgraced RINO from Virginia who hopes to regain a Congressional seat he lost in 2018 due to his campaign’s corrupt actions.
Gaetz will be appearing with former Congressman Scott Taylor on Thursday in Newport News, Va. for a “meet and greet” at 2nd Street, an American Bistro. There is also a private roundtable event with Gaetz and Taylor that is available to those willing to pay an unlisted price for access to the duo.
Taylor lost his 2nd District Congressional seat to former Navy commander Elaine Luria, a Democrat, in the 2018 mid-term elections after only one term in office. Luria defeated Taylor by a 51 to 48 margin, as voters rejected Taylor following an embarrassing petitions scandal.
Taylor’s team was accused by Democrats of forging ballot signatures for a third-party candidate in a desperate attempt to split the vote. Judge Gregory Rupe ruled that the concerns of the lawsuit filed by Democrats were valid, and the independent candidate was thrown off of the ballot as a result. Taylor’s staffer would eventually be indicted for campaign fraud as a result of the actions taken for the campaign.
“Scott Taylor is a disgrace,” said Waverly Wood, Founder of the Virginia Freedom Caucus. “He’s an embarrassment to the party. This is exactly what you would expect from the RINO establishment.”
Big League Politics has reported on Taylor’s sad history as a RINO in Congress, supporting open borders and attending a Soros-funded globalist summit.
“This bottom feeding Washington group, NumbersUSA, is being completely disingenuous with this BS Ad. This is a group that raises money off people’s fears,” Taylor said of the anti-illegal immigration organization that pointed out his support for amnesty.
Taylor also spoke in favor of foreign aid to the Soros-funded Global Citizen summit in Sept. 2017.
“Good evening fellow Global Citizens,” he said. “It’s great to be here and an honor to represent Virginia.”
“Now is not the time to cut foreign aid,” Taylor said during his speech that lasted about a minute.
His appearance at the blatantly globalist event can be seen here:
The connections between Gaetz and Taylor go back several years, as the men have campaigned with each other and exchanged contributions between their respective campaign committees.
Live in NWF and want to see a young, energetic, conservative congressman in action? Aug 2 fmr Navy Seal Congressman Scott Taylor will join us for a YUGE rally in Niceville! @Scotttaylorva https://t.co/6LfpaHMG9m

Open Secrets shows that the Friends Of Matt Gaetz committee donated $2,000 to Taylor’s campaign to help the disgraced RINO get his Congressional seat back. Records retrieved from FEC.gov also show that Scott Taylor for Congress gave Gaetz’s Congressional campaign $2,000 in Aug. 2018.
It is impossible to know Gaetz’s motives, as he did not respond to the request from Big League Politics to explain his associations with the RINO Taylor.
