The Republican Party, in my view, is nothing but a bunch of Trump lovers, who refuse to call out his 10,000 lies and other misdeeds. But one Republican has made a name for himself and lived by his conscience. He is U.S Representative Justin Amash, a very conservative Republican from Michigan, who publicly stated on Saturday June 18, that after he “carefully and completely” read the Mueller report, he concluded that Donald Trump committed “impeachable conduct.” He also accused Attorney General William Barr of intentionally misleading the public, which Barr certainly did. In a tweet Amash wrote:
“Here are my principal conclusions:
1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.”
All these conclusions are fact-based and can be verified by reading Vol. II of the Mueller report. In addition Amash stated, “When loyalty to a political party or to an individual trumps loyalty to the Constitution, the Rule of Law — the foundation of liberty — crumbles.”
If only a few more Republicans would stand with Amash instead of criticizing and blasting him for not being loyal to his political party. Instead these Republicans who put party before the U.S. Constitution are going along with Trump who (true to form) immediately began trashing the Michigan legislator.
Yet I keep hoping more Republicans will come forward and if nothing else at least call Trump what he is: a liar, a thief, a misogynist, a racist, a hater, and an obstructer of justice.
