An obscure member of Congress who few had ever heard of has suddenly become the newest hero of the anti-Trump resistance and he is calling on Nancy Pelosi to get the impeachment process moving.
Justin Amash has seized on the opportunity that a third-party challenge to President Trump represents and on Sunday, the congressman from Michigan was the toast of the town on the Sunday morning blabfests.
Following his departure from the Republican party – he has virtually no chance of winning his primary – the 39-year-old clearly has his eye on something bigger and siphoning off enough votes from Trump to put a Democrat into the White House would earn Amash the enduring gratitude of the swamp.

Amash popped up on CNN’s “State Of The Union” where he was given the star treatment by Jake Tapper and during the chat, he made it clear that it’s time for Pelosi to get cracking.
Rep. Amash on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s position on impeachment: “From a principled, moral position, she’s making a mistake. From a strategic position, she’s making a mistake. … If she doesn’t want to go forward, then we’re going to have a big problem” #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/MsyUwjbBPv

Newly independent Rep. Justin Amash said on Sunday that he believes Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is making a mistake by not calling for impeachment proceedings to begin on President Trump.
“From a principled, moral position she is making a mistake. From a strategic position, she’s making a mistake,” Amash told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday on “State of the Union.”
Amash, who announced he is leaving the GOP last Thursday, had been the only Republican in Congress to call for impeachment proceedings.
Despite a growing number of Democrats calling for impeachment after the allegations of obstruction of justice against Trump outlined in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Pelosi has maintained she will not begin proceedings at the moment.
“I do believe there’s a strong case, I believe she believes there is a strong case…if so move forward,” Amash said on Sunday.
