Justin Amash hammers Trump’s corruption in epic tweetstorm


Rep. Justin Amash, the first Republican in Congress to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, took to Twitter again on Thursday to explain Trump’s corrupt behavior against the Mueller report in an epic tweetstorm.

Amash called for impeachment last week after a careful analysis of the full (but redacted) report.

sis of the Mueller report and explained his decision.

Clearly, he demonstrated that the truth hurts because his Republican colleagues have been attacking him ever since, thus proving that they either did not read the report themselves, or did and just don’t care about what it says.

Because it’s a damning report that details Trump’s repeated efforts to undermine or outright kill the investigation at every level, including by firing former FBI Director James Comey, ordering former White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller, lying about the investigation on Twitter, lying in his written answers to Mueller’s questions and several other instances of obstruction of justice against a legitimate federal investigation looking into Russian interference in the 2016 Election.

Following up on his call for impeachment, Amash doubled down in yet another long tweetstorm defending it.

He began by pointing out that Trump violated the public trust and explained that Trump had lots of incentive to undermine the probe.

He then listed several examples of Trump’s misconduct.

He concluded by noting that while Trump has the authority to do a great many things, he cannot use that authority for corrupt purposes.

If Attorney General Bill Barr had been an honorable man who cares about the rule of law, this is what his summary of the Mueller report would have said.
