Republican Lawmaker Says Trump Meets “Threshold of Impeachment”


In a Twitter post on Friday, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) became the first Republican lawmaker to say publicly that President Donald Trump should be subject to impeachment. While not necessarily going so far as to call for those proceedings to begin, Amash did say that Trump’s behavior rises to the level necessary to impeach.

“Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meets the threshold for impeachment,” Amash wrote, instantly making himself the new Flavor of the Month for a mainstream media that loves Republicans who go against Trump. “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.”

“In fact,” Amash continued, “Mueller’s report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.”

And so Amash set in motion a very predictable wheel of events. No, not the impeachment of Donald Trump. Rather, the ousting of Justin Amash. No doubt, it will not be long before he joins the ranks of Bob Corker, Jeff Flake, Evan McMullin, Bill Kristol, and other NeverTrump politicians and pundits who have successfully tanked their own careers in their zeal to hate this president. As a matter of fact, Amash’s comments were barely cold by the time a Michigan conservative hinted that he would run against Amash in the next election.

“This cannot go unchallenged!” insisted Michigan State Rep. Jim Lower. “I support @realDonaldTrump, I support West Michigan values, I support our party’s values and I will have a major announcement regarding MI CD3 this week!”

Hopefully Lower will be successful in his bid. We don’t need every Republican to think, speak, and act in lockstep with President Trump. That’s not good for anyone. But there’s a difference between measured political disagreement and this kind of nonsense. Anyone who thinks Mueller found anything even approaching “high crimes and misdemeanors” is drinking the wrong kind of Kool-Aid. At this point, it’s not even about keeping Congress clean of NeverTrump ideology; it’s about electing Republicans who aren’t stupid enough to fall for the media’s propaganda. It’s clear that Amash is not among them.

What do you think?

  1. All they have on their brain is the word IMPEACHMENT….get a life, please
    They just CANNOT stand that Trump was elected President of the USA…

    GOD help us if the Democrats are elected!

    • No. God help the DemonCrapShitHeads if they get elected because there will be a civil war, and the people will get rid of the vermin rats.

  2. Shouldn’t the person in question be referred to as “USELESS RINO POLITICIAN”?

    And nobody really cares what the fool thinks… Well, except for the MAN running against him in the Primary.

  3. Finally…. a Republican with the courage to see things for the way they are. Even the article acknowledged they’re all drinking Kool-Aid… suggesting Amash just drank the wrong kind…. and that any former GOP politician or conservative pundit who calls Trump out for the global embarrassment that he is… has “tanked” their career. I think Bill Kristol will be around a lot longer than this ‘Liar-In-Chief’. Rep. Lower’s claim of supporting ‘party values’ is a joke, as he continues to back the fragile, narcissistic ego and pathological lying career, chronic and corrupt, self-aggrandizing fraud in the White House. His value would go up immensely IF he had the courage to support ‘TRUE’ party values and call this joker out for who and what he is. The GOP party might actually survive then. Even Nixon’s own people had to stand up and vote against the obstruction and abuse of power that now looks pale in comparison to this Putin-Puppet. Doing what’s RIGHT for the country should NEVER have anything to do with party affiliation. That includes Dems and Independents as well!

      • bob I agree!!!! Just because our president doesn’t fly around the world kissing a** and apologizing for the United States he is an embarrassment. Not too much of an embarrassment to have the Queen invite him for a visit. They don’t like Trump because he doesn’t mince words and tells it like it is. I love our president and I am loving what he is doing for our country. Dimiwits and RHINOs just want to spin that Mueller reports to suit and fit their agenda. That’s why they couldn’t wait to get their hands on it and were willing to break the law to do it.

        • He’s not an embarrassment. He’s standing up for America and he doesn’t take shit from anyone in the world. He’s respected. He’s not an ass-kissing jiggaboo muslim slime who is the first non-American illegal president.

    • I am sure that you will bvb e getting plenty of backlash for your insane comment.

      Obviously, you are just as uninformed and unintelligent as the rest of the crying deranged snowflakes. Pity! It would be a relief to hear ONE intelligent comment from a braindead Liberal, like yourself!

      I didn’t hear ONE example of this so-called near- impeachable offense that even comes CLOSE to any valid reason for this disgraceful RINO’s stupid comments. NOT ONE!

      If anyone needs a verifiable list for ANY impeachable or criminal act, you need not go any farther than Obama, Hillary. The Deep State puppets, and every Democrat politician alive today! EVERY ACT OF CRIME HAS BEEN VERIFIED.
      And I hope that you have a front seat to the public executions when they happen, as you sit crying into your soaked handkerchief.

      • I could not agree more. I am not sure that obstruction of justice without an underlying crime qualifies as ‘high crimes or misdemeanors’ as understood in the Constitution. Oddly enough Nixon was not impeached, he resigned. The indictment against him were obstruction of justice and perjury. Clinton was impeached for the same crimes but served out his term. So it appears that dems have some sort of privilege to avoid the consequences of their actions while if a repub spits on the sidewalk that person is perp walked to the nearest jail.

    • just another rhino whose family have factories in CHINA MAKING MORE CRAP TO SEND TO THE USA
      OF COURSE THAT SMALL DETAil is never mentioned

    • Bdog: No he didn’t say they were “all drinking kool-aid” first of all he just said this dic*wad was drinking the wrong kind of kool-aid…That being said, and your bias be duly noted, let me clarify some things you just said which are just total bullshi*…If President Trump is “self-aggrandizing” why is it that he even wants to be President? This man is worth BILLIONS of $$$$ and has power that you and others even ever dream about having…If he “self aggrandizing” he sure has caused himself a lot of trouble doing so…The GOP party will survive long after this “cart and pony show” the Liberal Democrat party is entertaining the American people with has long died, or the USA has been over-run by the idiots who call them selves American, but are truly saving themselves for a World of hurt…
      This “pathological liar, chronic and corrupt” individual has done more for America in 2 years(I’ll refrain from listing them, someone as stupid as you can’t understand them anyay)than every other President in History bar none…So there goes your name calling crawling right up your ass…Now you can go to your favorite proctologist(that’s a doctor ho deals with assholes, case you didnt know)and get him to soothe that hole your naming calling crawled up into…
      President Nixon was forced to resign because members of his own Cabinet, and Republican party had become disappointed in the President, and had lost faith in his ability to lead…Even though he was re-elected by a very large landslide, in the electoral college, and had rcieved the MAJORITY of the POPULAR vote…unlike the stealing fuc*ing Kennedy who was defeated in the Popular vote for Presidency and only won the Majority because of the 35 votes he got for his
      VP….
      The only thing you said up there with a grain of consideration is “doing whats right for the…party affiliation”..if thats true, then why is it that the Democrats march lock step with Schumer in the Senate on every thing that President Trump is doing?…FUC*YOU

      • “So there goes your name calling crawling right up your ass…”

        Name calling is just about all leftists have left as ammo against President Trump. I especially appreciate the final destination of leftists name calling.

  4. Interesting Mr. Amash comes to the conclusion that President Trump should be impeached but does not state the crime(s). Mr. Amash reasoning is suspect since the gentleman’s family have a business with China.

    • There are NO CRIMES except made up BS that the Democrats are afraid to move for impeachment on…They better hurry because after they impeach him, they got nothing left to stand on after that…The chances of him being removed by the Senate is absolutely ZERO and they know it…Let’s see if Nancy Peloshit is able to convince them NOT to commit political suicide…!

  5. Amash is the one who needs to be impeached. He is a RINO at best and a threat to the Republican. party. Having a family business in China tells me he would( or already has) do favors for his China business. Michigan, get him out of office!

  6. This guy Amash sounds like a traitor. I gave up a piece of my life and some body parts in the Naval Amphibious Forces. I will not give up my gun. Cold, dead hands!!!!

  7. He is a co-owner of Dynamic Source International, a Chinese company that supplies Michigan Industrial Tools. A visit to the website of Dynamic Source International (link) shows the company operates “manufacturing and factory facilities located in Hangzhou, capital city of Zhejiang Province”, China.

    When you follow the internal link [“MIT-Tool“] within Dynamic Source International website, it connects to the portal of Tekton Tools.

  8. Well, another idiot exposes himself as one of the many dumb-asses that votes to put the vile and non-persons we now have in our government, mainly the Democraps…etc, clowns,, crazies, socialist criminal, and all the very popular names as supporters of “ITS’ , including the two man team, one turned into a fake woman, that is headed for his punishment soon…stay tuned, the show is about to begin, let the kingpins be damned!! As far as you, Mr. Bdog, you are facing some very hard rough times ahead, Karma has a way of rewarding really stupid ones.

  9. Amash is history! He will never be re-elected after being a traitor to the party and to our republic. President Trump has done NOTHING that is an impeachable offense! Therefore all the talk from the Left and from this RINO is plain bologna! Goodbye Congressman!

  10. I don’t think this jerkwad Amash will be around much longer. A good thing. Note the ethnic attitudes building against Trump. We let way too many morons into this country since WW2. It is a kind of demographic suicide. Then we give many affirmative action and the nation get’s divided evermore. The inner hatred many ethnic groups bring to this country is deep seated. It is really bubbling up these days. But ask yourself, is a Somali or Venezuelan lifestyle what these people seek? Really? Are they that stupid?
