Amash: ‘High-level’ Republicans privately thanked me for supporting Trump impeachment

Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.), who announced last week that he was leaving the GOP to become an independent, said Sunday that «high-level» Republican officials have thanked him for his support of impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Amash, who had been the only GOP member of Congress to support impeachment proceedings against the president, made the comments while appearing on CNN’s «State of the Union.»

Asked by host Jake Tapper what he’s been hearing privately from Republicans following his decision to leave the party, Amash said people have texted and called him to say «thank you for what you’re doing.»

«When I was discussing impeachment, I had fellow colleagues and other Republicans, high-level officials, contacting me, saying, ‘Thank you for what you’re doing,'» he added. «So there are lots of Republicans out there who are saying these things privately, but there not saying it publicly, and I think that’s a problem for our country.»
