The first or the last?

Today, in a 13-tweet thread, Michigan congressman Justin Amash chided his fellow Republicans for failing to respond appropriately to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election and Donald Trump’s efforts to thwart the investigation. Amash is calling for Trump’s impeachment.

He believes his colleagues are failing the US Constitution and the American people. He says Republicans are deliberately shirking their duty to thoroughly review Mueller’s 11 conclusions on obstruction of justice by the president. The report doesn’t clear Trump, Amash argues, but his colleagues are avoiding reading it closely because if they do they’ll be compelled to conclude as he did after a thorough consideration of the findings that Trump committed an impeachable offense. His first tweet outlines his position.

    I didn't know that the Trumpsters in Congress had refused to read the Mueller report! Now I understand why Pelosi read the whole thing out loud! So, this is what Amash has, obviously, responded to! Awesome!

    Amash clearly has designs on running for Trump's job in 2020.

    Sounds like political deal making. The democrats will need some republican votes in the House to have the appearance of a legitimate impeachment vote. Amash could be selling his vote, say for the democrats to not run a strong candidate against him. A new John McCain in the making.
