Republican congressman Justin Amash calls for Trump impeachment

CNN
“Michigan GOP Rep. Justin Amash said Saturday he had concluded President Donald Trump committed "impeachable conduct" and accused Attorney General William Barr of intentionally misleading the public.”

Amash’s Twitter thread outlining his position after reading the Mueller report.




AG Barr comes under harsh criticism.

“In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings.

Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice.”

He still needs to get 18 Republican Senators to sign on for it to mean anything.

He's a libertarian masquerading as a Republican. Very conservative and here, something tripped his trigger and he spoke out.

Good for him. And it assures his re-election.

I agree with the label of Libertarian for Amash, he's always been more independent of the Republican machine. He is quite conservative, but isn't afraid to call a spade a spade. He'll get re-elected, no matter what, ours is quite a red district.

Interesting fellow.

[en.wikipedia.org]

Seems like he's a GOP 'never trumpster'.

Alas, his call is not going to lead to a group of fellow conservatives calling for a restoration of the balance in DC.
