GOP Lawmaker Says Trump’s Conduct Crosses Impeachment Threshold

GOP Lawmaker Says Trump’s Conduct Crosses Impeachment Threshold:  Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), has become the first Republican congressman to publicly state that, based on the Mueller Report - the President “engaged in impeachable conduct.”  Rep. Amash further added that Attorney General Barr “deliberately misrepresented” the Mueller Report’s findings to congress and to the American public.

Oh boy!  One can only imagine the 3 AM tweet storm that’s gonna emanate from Trump’s porcelain throne over this level of betrayal.  I’ll tell you another thing, disloyalty of this magnitude to the Cult of Trump isn’t likely to set well in America’s trailer parks either.  

But then again, what else is new?  After all, Republicans have never viewed reality as being in their best interests.  Now, I have no idea how all this is gonna finally go down, but I do know one thing - Justin Amash is definitely not gonna get an invite to Donald Trump's next wedding.

No, but I think he’ll be invited to a few other weddings. He proved that there are still Republicans who value their country even with John McCain dead.

This is Amash’s string of tweets. Read from “America’s institutions” (I think third tweet) down to the video of Capt. Picard. Absolutely worth reading.

Hi Kosh - I read his tweets and they were quite impressive.  Conservative S. E. Cupp also did so on CNN with pretty decent commentary.  But before everyone thinks "what a great guy this is" or "he's one of us," please stop and consider his position during Flint's water crises.  He's still a monster.  He's also going to be running for President as a libertarian, so criticising Trump isn't quite so bold when you factor in those issues.

I’m not expecting the man to be a Democrat. However, he is proving to be different from any other Republican in sight in that he appears to value the structure with safeguards of American government more than he values whatever his Party feels like doing at the moment. As I’ve recently posted, I think the most dangerous people are the ones who dismantle the structures we have in place to hold back people in office who dangerously overstep their authority. More than we need people who agree with us, we need people to support safeguards. The scariest thing going on now is not Trump, it’s that the institutions designed to limit his damage aren’t functioning because the people who comprise them are refusing to make them function. At the moment, he’s the sole Republican exception in Congress. Monster or not, that’s critical.

No, I clearly feel that way also.  Its just that quite a few people now seem to feel he's a hero - and he's not.

Bush looked like a hero after Trump was elected but he wasn’t one either. Heroism is relative.
