Skip to comments.Amash exits House Freedom Caucus in wake of Trump impeachment stance
Posted on 06/10/2019 8:28:21 PM PDT by yesthatjallen
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) has opted to quit the House Freedom Caucus in the wake of his comments in support of moving forward with impeachment proceedings.
The Freedom Caucus voted to condemn the Michigan Republican's remarks last month, but the group opted not to force him out despite a divide among members.
Amash was the first and only Republican House member to publicly say he thought President Trump had committed impeachable offenses after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
He has since doubled down multiple times on his statement that the president committed impeachable offenses and has clashed with Trump as well as with other members of his own party.
Pressure to kick the congressman out of the caucus began to mount after Amash failed to alert the group he was making his position, which conflicts with the majority of the groups pro-Trump views, public.
Members of the Freedom Caucus have been some of the presidents strongest defenders in Congress as momentum to impeach Trump has gained momentum within the Democratic caucus.
The president has maintained that Mueller's investigation found "no collusion" and "no obstruction." Mueller did not establish the that Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government. He neither implicated nor exonerated the president on allegations of obstruction.
more like he was told..
Quit or get ejected.
Yes, Freedom Haters must exit the Freedom Caucus. Goodbye, Mr. Hater.
My guess is that he has been approached by the never Trumpers and he is setting himself up as a ‘Conservative’ 3rd Party choice to run against Trump in 2020.
his uncontrollable mouth finally got his pretentious, ignorant a$$ into real trouble.
suck it, butt pirate.
nobody knows this insect exists. not even the never trumpers
in before the fanboys flood in this thread and gush like lovesick teenagers about how whats-his-face is “standing on principle”.
they do it every time.
He is toast. Goodbye and be gone.
Good. He should be primaries. Hes a disaster. May as well be a dem. Even the pro life support has been pulled
Amash has been a turd from day one
He is in favor of allowing the appointment of Democrat Federal judges (via removing President Trump).
It’s shocking that there are pederasts in the US Congress.
Nah - Im betting Steyer is funding the guy.
Its all too obvious from Romney and McCain that the Dems have been subverting the GOP for decades
If you're OK with a Democrat being appointed as a judge to the Federal courts, you're a Democrat.
Justin Amash and his supporters on Free Republic are Democrats.
I liked Amash when he first ran. Not anymore. Disgusting behavior by a R.
His family business imports Chinese tools. he doesn’t like and might be hurt by the tariffs. If it were me i would resign the office instead of using the office to protect my own personal stuff over the good of the country. oh i forgot hes a politician now.
My guess as well. Also some payoff of some kind. It’s no mystery why all of a sudden these people change.
There’s something wrong with that caucus. How could any member of a group purporting to believe in freedom believe that we would have more freedom if Trump were impeached?
