GOP Rep Doubles Down On Impeaching Trump, Now He Could Be GONE From Congress

Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash is doubling down on impeaching President Donald Trump, but he may not be in Congress long enough to help Democrats achieve their mission.

Soon after Amash claimed that Trump obstructed justice and committed impeachable offenses, he got a primary challenger in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District.

Speaking with the Detroit Free Press​, GOP State Rep. Jim Lower​ — who describes himself as pro-Trump, ​pro-life, pro-jobs, pro-Second Amendment, pro-family values Republican​ –announced his intention to run against Amash in 2020.

“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 said.

“He must be replaced and I am going to do it,” Lower added.

There is no evidence of collusion or obstruction — but Amash may lose his re-election bid before Democrats ever get close to impeaching Trump.

On Monday, Amash went on a Twitter rant and detailed in a series of tweets why he thinks Trump should be impeached for obstruction of justice.

“People who say there were no underlying crimes and therefore the president could not have intended to illegally obstruct the investigation—and therefore cannot be impeached—are resting their argument on several falsehoods,” Amash tweeted.

 

Many are understandably infuriated with Amash over his comments.

Last month, Attorney General William Barr put the final nail in the collusion coffin and reiterated countless times that Mueller found no evidence that Trump, his campaign, or any American colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

So that is the bottom line. After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the Special Counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.

Barr also stated that Mueller left it up to the Department of Justice to determine if the president obstructed justice.

Barr said he consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and they both determined there was no evidence to charge Trump with obstructing justice in the Russia probe.

This means that Trump and the White House provided Mueller’s team with essentially all of the records and documents they requested.

Barr and Mueller have made it clear that there is no evidence of collusion or obstruction — but Amash may lose his re-election bid in 2020 before Democrats ever get close to impeaching Trump.

He could learn the hard way not to mess with Trump.
