A Republican congressman from MI on Saturday became the first member of President Donald Trump's party on Capitol Hill to accuse him of engaging in "impeachable conduct" stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's lengthy investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump is far from the only Republican to lash out at Amash for veering off the party line (which seems to be "defend the president's criminality at all costs"), and on Monday Amash responded to the critics who have challenged him by dismantling, one by one, the most popular ways conservatives have tried to argue that Trump did not obstruct justice.
The House Freedom Caucus officially took a stand against Michigan Representative Justin Amash's' statements, which advocated for the impeachment of President Trump. "He must be replaced and I am going to do it", Lower added.
Amash sports the most anti-Trump record of any current congressional member.
The Department of Justice stuck to its guns on keeping protected portions of special counsel Robert Mueller's report protected Tuesday, despite the possibility of another contempt vote from House Democrats.
The Mueller report, now at the center of an escalating oversight battle between Trump and House Democrats, detailed extensive contacts between Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation, but did not find that there was a conspiracy with Moscow. Mueller also decided against filing an obstruction of justice charge against the president.

Scarlett Johansson has officially said yes to her comedy news anchorman who has a haircut you can set your watch to. Jost and Johansson made their first public appearance together in October 2017 for an " SNL " afterparty.
No Republican joined Amash's call for impeachment. Sen.
In February Amash became the lone Republican to co-sponsor a resolution in the US House of Representatives to reject the emergency Trump declared at the US-Mexico border to build a wall there, in a stinging rebuke to the president. There are a great deal of how for other Republicans to insist him on all of his stances that deviate from the monumental consensus for the length of the event, at the side of on the insist of impeachment.
Norton told FOX 17 he believes Amash is playing three-dimensional chess by posting such inflammatory comments about the president. "He's been in Congress quite some time".
"Regrettably, the President's most recent actions and continued disrespect for the Constitution are forcing us down the road to impeachment", Pocan said in the statement. "President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct", read one. "It's a question whether he's even in our Republican conference as a whole". In a closed-door meeting yesterday, top House Democrats reportedly clashed over the issue of pursuing impeachment against President Trump.
Lower has held the state seat for two terms while Amash was elected in 2010 and re-elected three times.
Amash is in spite of the whole lot a libertarian Republican who I could well accept as true with on a different of home factors but disagree with vehemently on a different of areas of foreign coverage. He also appeared to run unopposed in 2016 before winning almost 60 percent of the vote in the general election.
