After being attacked as “impeachable” by Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., a frequent critic of the president, President Donald Trump lashed back Sunday via Twitter, calling out the “lightweight,” “loser” critic for political opportunism that “plays right into” resistant Democrats’ hands.
“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 actually read the biased Mueller Report, ‘composed’ by 18 Angry Dems 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!”
Rep. Amash had tweeted Saturday about his “principal conclusions” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, listing at No. 2 “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.”
Amash’s position on impeachment might not truly move Congress. While House Democrats might have the votes to send the impeachment proceedings to the Senate, Amash’s vote does not count there. Still, House Democrats have been hesitant on moves for impeachment because of potentially riling up President Trump’s voter base before the 2020 presidential election.
