Justin Amash’s Business Interests in China Underscore His Push to Impeach Trump

It may be more than constitutionalism driving Amash’s dogged opposition to President Trump.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has become the darling of anti-Trump liberals following his declaration in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump yesterday.

While Amash acts like his support of impeachment is rooted in constitutional grounds, there may be a financial motive to his opposition to Trump. It has been revealed that Amash has significant business interests in China that may be harmed by Trump’s ‘America First’ trade policies.

In Amash’s financial disclosure forms for the year of 2015, he was shown as receiving up to $1 million in annual income due to his ownership stake in Michigan Industrial Tools (MIT). MIT is the parent company of Tekton Tools, Amash’s family business, that benefits directly from Chinese manufacturing.

An article from MLive in 2010 exposed Amash as being the co-owner of Dynamic Source International (DSI), a Chinese company that was once an MIT supplier. Amash’s family have been outspoken advocates of the globalist trade status quo for many years.

“Trade with China is providing American consumers with good quality tools that could not be made for those prices in the United States,” said John Amash, Justin’s brother, who is President of Tekton Tools.

The issue was a controversy when a Democratic opponent of Amash pointed out his Chinese business connections when the Grand Rapids Congressman initially ran for Congress in 2010 billing himself as a tea party advocate and Ron Paul Republican.

“The fact is, instead of making American-made products made by American workers, Justin Amash has chosen Chinese workers to make products which he then sells in America,” said Lonny Paris, who served as campaign manager in 2010 for Amash’s Democratic opponent Pat Miles Jr.

With Amash becoming a more vicious opponent of Trump than even most Democrats, his business record is once again under scrutiny as it may be more than principled constitutionalism driving this ‘Never Trump’ leaders motives in leading the drive for impeachment.

Georgia’s Unelected RINO Senator Cashed Out on Stocks After Coronavirus Briefing

Sen. Kelly Loeffler has demonstrated her cronyism.

Published

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was appointed to her post undemocratically against the wishes of President Donald Trump, has been revealed for selling stock shortly after a private briefing on the coronavirus.

She and her husband sold off a stunning seven figures worth of stock options after the Senate Health Committee held a private meeting with all Senators to brief them about the growing coronavirus epidemic.

“Appreciate today’s briefing from the President’s top health officials on the novel coronavirus outbreak. These men and women are working around the clock to keep our country safe and healthy,” Loeffler wrote in a tweet about the briefing at the time.

Loeffler dumped stocks worth between $50,001 and $100,000 in Resideo Technologies following the hearing. The stock for Resideo has dropped by half since that point, as the Dow Jones has tanked by losing roughly 10,000 points.

She also made a buy of between $100,000 and $250,000 in Citrix, a tech firm specializing in teleworking that has bucked the market during its downturn due to the increased demand for remote networking because of coronavirus.

In subsequent tweets, Loeffler has repeatedly downplayed the threat of coronavirus.

“Democrats have dangerously and intentionally misled the American people on #Coronavirus readiness,” she wrote in a tweet on Feb. 28. “Here’s the truth: @realDonaldTrump & his administration are doing a great job working to keep Americans healthy & safe.”

“Concerned about #coronavirus?” she wrote in a tweet on March 10. “Remember this: The consumer is strong, the economy is strong, & jobs are growing, which puts us in the best economic position to tackle #COVID19 & keep Americans safe.”

Since she wrote those tweets, most of the country has been locked down, Wall Street has cratered, and death tolls have continued to spike.

Loeffler is not the only Senator who seemingly took information about coronavirus to benefit their own finances. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who is chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, had his hand caught in the cookie jar as well. He jettisoned between $500,000 and $1.5 million of stock in February after the meeting.

Burr knew about how potentially deadly the coronavirus could become, but only told his inner circle of well-connected constituents and kept the public in the dark.

“There’s one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history,” he told the insiders in the uncovered audio. “It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic.”

Loeffler was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat last year by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp against the counsel of President Trump. Trump’s preferred pick for the seat, Rep. Doug Collins, is challenging Loeffler for her Senate position right now. The U.S. Senate election in Georgia will take place in November with multiple Republicans on the ballot.
