Baish’s POV| Representative Justin Amash (Republican, Michigan) is now going into a primary challenge after pushing to remove President Donald Trump from office, claiming that he engaged in “impeachable conduct,” which he says was shown in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
“Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trump’s impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents,” Lower stated. “He must be replaced, and I am going to do it.”
“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 stated.
After the Republican’s impeachment stand against the President, Republicans were quick to make it clear that Amash is on his own on this one.
“Trump himself, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel, and Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox all harshly criticized Amash for his statements, with Trump calling him a ‘loser’ in a Sunday tweet,” explains the Caller.
Trump tweeted, “Never a fan of @justinamash, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy. If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, ‘composed’ by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump,….”

The Daily Caller reports:
Amash refused to support Trump when he was the Republican nominee in 2016, and has remained a frequent critic of the president since he took office. Amash was the only Republican to co-sponsor a resolution disapproving of Trump’s national emergency declaration at the southern border, claiming that it was executive overreach.
