This is how it started with Nixon.

Courtesy of CNN:

Michigan GOP Rep. Justin Amash said Saturday he had concluded President Donald Trump committed “impeachable conduct” and accused Attorney General William Barr of intentionally misleading the public.

Amash’s comments recommending Congress pursue obstruction of justice charges against Trump were the first instance of a sitting Republican in Congress calling for Trump’s impeachment.

Amash is a rare GOP critic of Trump and previously said Trump’s conduct in pressuring then-FBI Director James Comey could merit impeachment. In a Twitter thread on Saturday, Amash said he believed “few members of Congress even read” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report and that the report itself established “multiple examples” of Trump committing obstruction of justice.

Here is the Twitter feed from Amash that revealed his thinking on all of this:

This has already received a response from Trump which assures that it will now be seen by his supporters.

It is telling that Amash’s reaction essentially matches the conclusion that most people reach if they actually take the time to read the full Mueller report. 

Now that there is a Republican pushing for this it will be interesting to see if more Democrats are willing to openly call for Trump’s impeachment as well.

      SO effing stupid, they can’t see that what they once cherished as GREAT is being swept out from underneath them faster than they cry, “Jesus, help us!”
      I was watching HLN yesterday morning 4:30ish, and the anchor said (editorializing?) that followers do not care because it doesn’t affect them.
      Holy mother of God.

    In other matters that matter, except to wingnuts, the Senate confirmed new deputy AG to replace Rosenstein on a straight party line vote. The guy’s qualifications for the job are he is a lawyer and a faithful wingnut. Dems questioned his credentials as he has never worked in the DOJ and had never prosecuted a court case. In fact he is typically light in the necessary skills needed for the job he has been approved for. I am sure he is just another dupe for we didn’t find any collusion since we weren’t interested in finding any collusion.

    That trump is like the alien. Hes a self protective predator. No wonder putin has him on the team. One must have no conscience to be able to survive.

    Sarah probably has crosshairs on the guy. Just like she did to Giffords.

    He came to these conclusions having read the entire redacted Mueller report. Just imagine what conclusions would be drawn by reading the UNredacted report.
