GOP Rejects Rep. Amash Doing Dems’ Impeachment Bidding
Written by MagaFirstNews on May 19, 2019
Republicans are rebuking Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., for calling President Donald Trump’s conduct as “impeachable,” with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeting he is doing the work of resistant Democrats.
“It’s sad to see Congressman Amash parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia,” she tweeted. “The only people still fixated on the Russia collusion hoax are political foes of @realDonaldTrump hoping to defeat him in 2020 by any desperate means possible.”
“Voters in Amash’s district strongly support this president, and would rather their Congressman work to support the President’s policies that have brought jobs, increased wages and made life better for Americans.”
Sen. Romney, while calling Rep. Amash’s position “courageous,” reminded CNN’s “State of the Union,” it is the Senate and not Rep. Amash’s House that is the “jury” on impeachment.
“My own view is that Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have,” Romney told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “But I believe that to make a case for obstruction of justice, you just don’t have the elements that are evidenced in this document.
“And I also believe that an impeachment call is something that not just relates to the law but considers practicality and politics. I think those considering impeachment have to look at the jury, which is the Senate.
“The Senate is certainly not there either.”
RNC’s McDaniel repeated President Trump’s position in scathing tweets on Rep. Amash doing the work of resistant Democrats.
“Never a fan of @justinamash, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy. If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, ‘composed’ by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump,….”
“….he would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION…Anyway, how do you Obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!”
Rep. Amash had tweeted Saturday about his “principal conclusions” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, listing at No. 2 “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.”
The GOP rejection of Amash’s position extended to Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox.
“While President @realDonaldTrump’s leadership has led to the strongest economy in a generation, Justin Amash has opposed his ‘America First’ agenda every step of the way,” she tweeted, and added in an ensuing tweet:
“Now, in a desperate attempt to grab headlines and advance his own presidential ambitions, Amash is peddling a narrative that has repeatedly been proven false. Shameful.”
