Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) has billed himself as one of the biggest opponents of endless foreign wars while serving as Congressman, but the weaselly legislator has flipped once more. Amash is now criticizing President Donald Trump for engaging in diplomacy as he attempts to pull troops out of Afghanistan.
“How about we end the war without inviting the Taliban to dinner on the week of 9/11?” Amash asked in a snarky response to President Trump’s announcement that he had cancelled a summit between the President of Afghanistan and leaders from the Taliban.
Trump made the announcement in a series of tweets this weekend.
“Unbeknownst to almost everyone, the major Taliban leaders and, separately, the President of Afghanistan, were going to secretly meet with me at Camp David on Sunday. They were coming to the United States tonight,” Trump wrote.
“Unfortunately, in order to build false leverage, they admitted to an attack in Kabul that killed one of our great great soldiers, and 11 other people. I immediately cancelled the meeting and called off peace negotiations. What kind of people would kill so many in order to seemingly strengthen their bargaining position?” Trump asked.
“They didn’t, they only made it worse! If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway. How many more decades are they willing to fight?” Trump added.
The President has shown a commitment to bringing troops home from Afghanistan, but Amash is not making it easier for Trump to do so by sabotaging his foreign policy efforts.
Amash has joined the neocons in the Washington D.C. establishment by attempting to legitimize the bogus Mueller probe, and inferring without evidence that the President is an agent of Russia.
Amash announced his support for impeaching President Donald Trump shortly after the findings of FBI spook Robert Mueller were released to the public, even though Mueller’s report never produced any evidence that Trump colluded with Russians:
Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.

Amash tried to undermine the President after he had an important diplomatic summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin as well:
The impression it left on me, a strong supporter of the meeting, is that “something is not right here.” The president went out of his way to appear subordinate. He spoke more like the head of a vassal state.

While Amash may pay lip service to supporting peace and diplomacy, he has become one of the biggest obstacles standing in their way because of his agenda to undermine President Trump at every turn.
Amash is widely expected to become a presidential challenger to President Trump in 2020, as he attempts to stop the incumbent from winning the crucial battleground state of Michigan.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
