Justin Amash Votes with Democrats to Subpoena Kellyanne Conway for Bogus ‘Hatch Act’ Allegations

This is the latest betrayal from the turncoat Congressman who has stabbed Republicans in the back.

In the latest phase of the Democrat-pushed witch hunt against the Trump administration, the House Oversight and Reform Committee voted 25-16 to subpoena White House counselor Kellyanne Conway today over alleged violations of the Hatch Act.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was the only Republican to vote with the Democrats to subpoena Conway, as the impeachment champion continues his betrayal of his party, his constituents, and the Fourth Amendment.

“There are rarely issues that come before our committee that are so clear-cut, but this is one of them,” Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said. “This is about right and wrong. This is about the core principle of our precious democracy, that nobody, not one person, nobody in this country is above the law.”

Henry Kerner, who leads the OSC and wrote the report claiming Conway violated the Hatch Act, claimed earlier today that Conway’s behavior “created an unprecedented challenge to OSC’s ability to enforce the Hatch Act.”

“Her conduct sent a false message to other federal employees that they need not abide by the Hatch Act, or that senior officials are above the law,” Kerner testified. “I’m here to emphatically say that’s not the case.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Freedom Caucus blasted the ridiculousness of Kerner’s request:

Amash, who recently left the House Freedom Caucus after calling for impeachment, is now essentially caucusing with the Democrats. He works to give their witch hunt against President Trump bipartisan cover at every opportunity.

He had previously voted with Democrats on the Oversight Committee to hold AG William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress over a subpoena attempt regarding the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Amash is on the record supporting illegals having the right to vote in certain elections.

“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.

“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 will likely continue doing the Democratic Party’s dirty work as he heads into a fierce primary battle with two Republican challengers in 2020.

He is also rumored to make a jump to the marginal Libertarian Party as their presidential candidate where he hopes to play spoiler against Trump in the key battleground state of Michigan, and potentially hand over the election to his Democratic Party allies.

House Republicans Beg Attorney General Bill Barr to Investigate Hunter Biden’s Laptop

Barr doesn’t seem too concerned.

Published

on

House Republican leaders are pleading with Attorney General Bill Barr, essentially begging him to actually investigate Hunter Biden’s laptop.

They issued a letter to Barr on Monday urging him to appoint a special counsel to look into the contents of Hunter Biden’s emails, which appear to show an extreme amount of cronyism that may implicate his father in some illegal or at least highly immoral activity involving foreign governments.

“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter states, according to a Fox News report.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) signed the letter along with Reps. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Andy Harris (R-MD), Steve King (R-IA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Ted Budd (R-NC), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Mark Green (R-TN).

“Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability,” the letter continues. “If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.”

“It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain,” the letter states.

However, these Republican lawmakers are not likely to get anywhere considering Barr’s inability or unwillingness to clean up deep state corruption.

Big League Politics has reported on how Barr’s probe into the Russia-gate scandal is resulting in no indictments despite the incredible amount of evidence showing brazen criminality:

Those who “trusted the plan” that Attorney General Bill Barr was going to clean up the deep state and put corrupt actors from the Obama administration to justice are learning a hard lesson in how the swamp works.

Barr, who initially served under globalist President George H.W. Bush and was responsible for orchestrating the heinous Ruby Ridge atrocity, is reportedly not going to charge anyone from the Obama regime for the “unmasking” of their political opponents in the Russia-gate scandal.

According to the Washington Post, the investigation ordered by Barr has concluded without “finding any substantive wrongdoing.” U.S. Attorney John Bash is the man who was tasked with this investigation by Barr, and he is allegedly using his authority to protect the deep state from being held accountable for the greatest crime in American history. Barr’s office is hiding Bash’s findings from the public.

Bash announced his departure from the Department of Justice on Oct. 5 but never mentioned the unmasking probe. The AG’s office has seemingly done everything in its power to keep this information under wraps, similar to what has been done with the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion scandal that is being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham…

President Trump is getting the picture that he along with the American public have been had by AG Barr and other veteran deep staters.

“If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump told Rush Limbaugh last week. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and I will say it to [Barr’s] face.”

Barr has shown he is all bark and no bite. If President Trump gets elected to a second term, Barr will need to be replaced with an AG who has a spine in order for lasting reforms to institutional corruption to take hold.
