GOP Lawmaker Throws Trump Under The Bus: Trump Should ‘Undoubtedly’ Be Impeached And Indicted

The majority of the Republican Party has stood by Donald Trump’s side no matter how much wrong he has done. But there are a few who have held Trump accountable for his actions.

On Saturday, Republican Congressman Justin Amash (R-Mich.) took to Twitter to write a series of tweets denouncing the president and claiming that the Mueller report had enough evidence to get Trump not only impeached but indicted.

“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.”

Amash didn’t only go after Trump, but he also called out Attorney General William Barr for attempting to protect the president.

“In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings,” Amash wrote.

“Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice.”

Amash is the first House Republican to publicly support the impeachment of Trump.
