Americans were shocked when Republican Rep. Justin Amash turned on the party to demand Trump’s impeachment. The little-known congressman seemed to want to win over the corrupt Democrats and steal the spotlight. It didn’t go well for him. His entire party turned on him over this act of betrayal. Now, he’s been booted from a major group.
Let’s just get this out of the way: President Trump did nothing that deserves investigation or impeachment. The entire Mueller probe and Russian collusion scandal was nothing more than a witch hunt. Democrats were so outraged by the 2016 Election, they pushed this lie for over two years, just to smear the president’s name.
Nobody in their right mind thinks Trump should be impeached. Democrats say it, to win brownie points with their uninformed, braindead base. As President Trump proves that he’s one of the most effective leaders in our history, Democrats spread rumors to tarnish his success.
Republicans, on the other hand, are over the moon. In just two and a half years, Trump has done more for conservative causes than few presidents ever did. Even Ronald Reagan wasn’t as successful as Donald Trump. This, while Democrats in Congress refuse to cooperate and obstruct him at every turn.
Yet, there are still Never Trump Republicans—and even one idiotic representative who has called for Trump’s impeachment. Justin Amash, from Michigan, claimed the Mueller report provided enough proof that Trump should be impeached. M-hm, you reading the same report as the rest of us, Amash?
Republicans were disgusted by this stunt. Most saw it for what it was, a pathetic attempt for a no-name rep to grab the spotlight. Maybe he thought he’d get some support from other Republicans or win over Democrats. Heck, maybe he wanted to appear on CNN.
But his stunt has backfired in a big way.
Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash announced Monday evening he is leaving the influential conservative House Freedom Caucus, just weeks after he attracted the ire of his colleagues by arguing in Twitter posts that President Trump had committed impeachable offenses, Fox News has learned.
Amash, speaking at a Freedom Caucus board meeting, insisted his departure was voluntary. Amash said he did not want to continue to be a “further distraction” for the caucus, which is chaired by North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows. [Source: Fox News]
Oh, sure, Amash. You decided—on your own—to leave one of the most important conservative groups in Congress. All so you wouldn’t be a “distraction.”
Don’t be fooled, this sucker was booted out. The leader of the Freedom Caucus, Jim Jordan, was being nice by letting Amash say he decided to leave on his own.
Jordan and other members of the caucus were particularly outraged over Amash’s impeachment statements. Trump has been winning again and again for their cause. Then, suddenly, one of their own members is calling for the president to be impeached!
Yeah, something tells me the Freedom Caucus wanted Amash’s head on a platter.
Things haven’t been going well for Amash ever since he went on a Twitter rant, demanding Trump’s impeachment. President Trump himself called out the congressman, saying he was a lightweight who was trying to get his name out there.
His own constituents slammed Amash during a town hall in Grand Rapids. They seemed to be pretty upset that their representative was attacking the one man making America great again.
“You talk about the Constitution and how important that is, but yet nothing that Mueller came out within this report, nothing that has been said about him and President Trump is constitutional — it’s been a smear tactic, because that’s how the Democrats work,” one Trump supporter told Amash.
“How can you become a Democrat when we voted for you as a Republican?” the attendee continued. “Because you’ve just drank the same Kool-Aid as all the Democrats.” [Source: Fox News]
Trump has been fighting a battle to save our country, often all on his own. What has Amash done to support the president’s goals of protecting our border, fixing our economy, beating back terrorism, attracting new businesses to our country, or solving our healthcare woes?
Oh… he’s done nothing.
Maybe Amash will learn to keep his big mouth shut.
