Amash Takes Heat from Fellow Conservatives after Calling to Impeach Trump

On Saturday, GOP Rep. Justin Amash took major heat from Republicans and conservatives after calling for the impeachment of President Trump.

Amash maintains that the president has committed “impeachable offenses” and these claims prompted intense responses from both conservatives and President Trump himself, as documented by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Why Does Amash Believe Trump Should be Impeached?

Typically, calls for the president’s impeachment come from far-left radical Democrats. However, Amash is one of the few “never Trump” Republicans who believe that impeachment is warranted and necessary.

Despite the plethora of faults within this logic, Amash explained his reasoning in the following tweets:

It’s worth noting that Amash is not the only politician to direct criticism towards Attorney General William Barr. However, this manner of criticism generally comes from the left side of the political aisle.

Nevertheless, Amash’s statements continue:

This logic is questionable at best. Which “specific actions” and “pattern of behavior” is Amash referring to? Mueller’s Russia probe remained ongoing for nearly two years; never throughout any time of the probe did Mueller come up with a shred of evidence that the president colluded with the Russian government in order to win the 2016 election. Mueller also couldn’t prove that Trump obstructed justice during the probe, much to the chagrin of Democrats.

Still, there’s more from Amash:

Amash concluded his statements with four more tweets to explain why he believes the system of checks-and-balances and the Constitution merits the impeachment of President Trump.

Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up.

Reactions to Amash’s Statements

Many conservatives openly spoke out against the Michigan representative in light of his commentary. However, Democrats were more than thrilled to sing Amash’s praises. It’s amazing to see how Democrats will go from slandering virtually all Republicans to openly embracing anyone on the right-wing who comes out as anti-Trump. It defies all logic and reason, but that’s never stopped the Democrats.

The president had words for Amash also, slamming the Michigan representative and professing that Amash is only criticizing him for the sake of self-promotion.
