First GOP Congressman to call for Trump's Impeachment greeted with a standing ovation at Michigan town hall

 Flip your wig, Donny
Mod: I have bashed the Tea Party regularly on this site for their cowardice and hypocrisy in betraying their much beloved United States Constitution by supporting Trump. Then along came Justin Amash, Tea Party stalwart and the first GOP Congressman to call for Trump's impeachment. Why? Defence of just that very Constitution. Go figure.

Amash greeted with a standing ovation at Michigan town hall (CNN link): Republican Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan may have been prepared to deal with critics at his first town hall since publicly stating earlier this month that President Donald Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct, but instead he got a standing ovation Tuesday.

Attendees even booed and heckled a woman in a Make America Great Again hat who defended Trump, prompting Amash to step in. "Let's be respectful," he urged the crowd.

During the town hall, which went on for two hours, an hour longer than planned, Amash defended his conservative credentials -- "I'm who I said I was. I'm a principled, constitutional conservative" -- and once again brushed off a new primary challenge from Michigan state Rep. Jim Lower. "I am not concerned about it," Amash told the crowd, adding: "And in any case, you should always do what's right."

He remains the only sitting Republican to openly say that Trump committed impeachable offenses based on his reading of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

"Clearly, things that violate the public trust are impeachable," Amash said Tuesday, drawing applause. "I think it's really important that we do our job as Congress. That we would not allow misconduct to go undeterred."

He has not signed on to any existing / impeachment resolutions, but said Tuesday that it would be appropriate for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to move ahead with an impeachment inquiry.

"She's very nervous about some of her Democrats who are in what she considers tougher districts," Amash said to a crowd of more than 700 packed into the Grand Rapids Christian High School auditorium.

"We have a job to do, and I think we owe it to the American people to represent them to ensure that the people we have in office are doing the right thing, are of good character, aren't violating the public trust." Hours before the town hall, Amash had put out a series of 25 tweets expanding on his takeaways from the Mueller report, which explored Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"In truth, Mueller's report describes concerning contacts between members of Trump's campaign and people in or connected to the Russian government," Amash wrote on Tuesday.

Amash singled out Attorney General William Barr for his handling of the report, arguing that Barr had misrepresented Mueller's findings, including in testimony before Congress. "Barr has so far successfully used his position to sell the President's false narrative to the American people. This will continue if those who have read the report do not start pushing back on his misrepresentations and share the truth," Amash tweeted.

  4. Amash accuses Barr of selling Trump's 'false narrative'

    Rep. Justin Amash, who earlier this month became the first Republican member of Congress to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, took aim at Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday — charging that the nation’s top law enforcement officer has “used his position to sell the president's false narrative to the American people.”

    In a 25-post Twitter spree, the Michigan lawmaker accused Barr of having “deliberately misrepresented” the findings of Robert Mueller’s investigation in a March 24 letter to Congress summarizing the special counsel’s findings.

    Amash wrote online Tuesday that Barr’s letter “selectively quotes and summarizes points in Mueller’s report in misleading ways,” and asserted that “the public and Congress were misled” as a result of the attorney general’s initial four-page summary.

    Amash admonished Barr for not complying with Mueller’s request — articulated in a March 27 letter from the special counsel to the attorney general — to release the introductions and executive summaries of Mueller’s report.

  5. Most Tea Party people know that actually reading the Mueller Report is an act of treason. That is why Barr put out his 4 page summary. It is all you need to know.

  10. Mueller resigns but first says this is the last time you will hear from me, there was insufficient evidence to charge broader conspiracy.
    The counsel of legal guidance said charging a seated President was not an option we could consider.
    * legal technicalities, found collusion or not found collusion!
    Everything i have said is in the report.
    Everything in the written report speaks for itself. * think Mueller SPOFFED the American public! Any questions!!!
    Supeana Anyone? Ahh, yes.
    Mueller has a convoluted way of saying things, if there was a federal obstruction committed then spell it out clearly, it was your assigned job at a great expense to tax payers, thirty pages of opinion and suggestions from you for YOU not to just leave it up to Congress to sort out broader conspiracy theories.
    I dont have a collusion case and i dont have a obstruction case...but i do have a big fat paycheck for my two years of ???

  12. The real crime is President Obama and Hillary Clinton not being charged in their paid for conspiracy against President Trump.
    Russia trolls were interfering with the 2016 election as they have for forty years, and nothing has been done about this.

  14. Insufficient evidence to convict Don Trump for the conspiracy with Russia just means that the organized criminals in the Trump campaign covered their tracks well.

    Here’s an example of insufficient evidence to convict another Don: John Gotti’s neighbor, after accidentally killing Gotti’s son with a car, was kidnapped and killed. Gotti was not charged due to insufficient evidence, but who do you think ordered the hit?

    “Russia, if you’re listening....”

  15. Second time around will not be so pretty for the no Trumpers and Progressive Democrats.
    Where to go from here?
    The presumption of innocence is what works in the United States and the liberals have forgotten this.
    What does that party stand for anymore?
    The Democratic party began as a way for slave holders to hold onto their ownership of humans; Dixiecrats.
    What is this party holding onto now?
    The economy is doing great.
    The field of twenty five Democratic Canadiates have nothing new to say.

  16. Hey you right wing nuts, read this from mueller:

    “And as set forth in the report, after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”
