A Michigan Republican and member of the House Freedom Caucus accused President Trump of “impeachable conduct” in a break with his party.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted Saturday that the president’s actions to potentially obstruct the now-shuttered special counsel investigation warrant impeachment by the House. He also accused Attorney General William Barr of “deliberately misrepresenting” Robert Mueller’s report of the investigation’s findings.

“Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report,” Amash wrote Saturday afternoon.

“Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” the Michigan Republican 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.”

In other tweets, Amash accused Barr of “sleight-of-hand” to obscure the findings of Mueller’s report in his own summary released to Congress earlier this year.

  1. His father is Palestinian
    Trump is pro-Israel

    So it’s not too hard to figure out why he is the only Republican interested in impeaching Trump

  2. His Parents are palestinians. He’s an Arab!!! North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Walker says about this looney Amash “He’s as much a Republican as Bernie Sanders is an Independant.”

  3. What an idiot why doesn’t he do like the democrats who never acknowledge any wrongdoing no matter what does he want a liberal socialist idiot running this country?

  4. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said that while he has called out Trump when deemed appropriate, he does not believe the Mueller report provided evidence that supports impeachment.”

  5. This Amashed Idiot is an Arab. He always votes against Israel. He sides with the muslims in the democrat party. Piece of garbage.
