President Trump Slams “Loser” GOP Rep. Justin Amash Over His Call For Impeachment
Trump slammed “loser” GOP Rep. Justin Amash in a pair of Tweets Sunday morning after the lawmaker called for the President’s impeachment.
Libertarian Republican Congressman Justin Amash of Michigan called for the impeachment of President Trump on Saturday, becoming the first GOP congressman or senator to do so. Amash also accused Attorney General William Barr of misleading the public about the findings of the Mueller report.
Last month Justin Amash expressed his openness to running against President Trump in 2020 as the Libertarian Party candidate, so it looks like he wants to drum up some attention.
President Trump unleashed on Amash Sunday morning.
Trump called Amash a “total lightweight” and accused the GOP lawmaker of “getting his name out there for controversy.”
“Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!” Trump said arguing the Mueller report showed no collusion, no obstruction.
….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!

GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also blasted Justin Amash and said he votes more with Nancy Pelosi than he votes with him and Republicans.
