Trump Hits Back Against GOP Rep Who Took Stance On Impeachment: ‘Justin Is A Loser’

by Evie Fordham

 

President Donald Trump criticized Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash on Twitter after the congressman said Saturday that Trump “engaged in impeachable conduct” related to the Mueller investigation.

“Never a fan of Justin Amash, 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,” Trump wrote Sunday.

“If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, ‘composed’ by 18 Angry [Democrats] 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!” he continued.

Amash took his stand on impeachment Saturday in a tweet after reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into potential Russian election meddling.

He wrote Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” Mueller’s report in his summary and that “Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.”

Members of Amash’s own party widely criticized the libertarian-leaning congressman for his stance.

“It’s sad to see Congressman Amash parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia,” Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel wrote on Twitter Saturday. “The only people still fixated on the Russia collusion hoax are political foes of Donald Trump hoping to defeat him in 2020 by any desperate means possible.”
