The party had plenty of warning to run someone against this Rep. Justin Amash, but party leaders only go after conservatives.
On Sunday, President Trump ripped Rep. Justin Amash after the Michigan representative’s call for impeachment during a Twitter rant on Saturday evening.
Amash doesn’t side with Republicans that much when major legislation is passed through the House of Representatives, probably because he claims to be a Libertarian. Amash is currently the first GOP lawmaker in both the House or Senate to claim Attorney General William Barr MISLED the American public about the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation report.
Amash has also publicly floated the possibility of running against President Trump in 2020, again, via the Libertarian party and this could get him some public eyes as the Commander-in-chief expressed in this Sunday tweets:
Trump tweeted the following: “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 read the biased Mueller Report, “composed” by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump,….”
Trump added: “…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 the other side committed the crimes? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!”
….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!

Where was Justin Amash when the AG was committing crimes during President Obama’s administration? And what about the things President Obama was doing?
Amash’s constituents in Michigan are probably far more supportive of the President and his policies than of Amash, as Trump’s policies have brought stability, jobs, and prosperity to parts of Michigan that were hurting before.
Amash and his family manufacture tools in China, which are sold in the USA under the name Tekton. Trump tariffs on China are hurting Amash’s income, so naturally, he sees grounds for impeachment.
This begins at the feet of the GOP leadership. The only things the GOP should be doing is grooming political nominees who only embrace the Trump agenda and say so in writing. The other is to pressure POSs like Amash with defunding and removing support for any traitors who don’t toe the line. I am sick and disgusted by the unreliable republicans that make every vote in the Congress and Senate a crap shoot. Either burn this deceitful party down or fix it.
It’s reasonable to wonder how Amash got to become a member of the Freedom Caucus, aside from being a Republican. Does neither organization have any standards concerning who can be a member?
