Justin Amash Doubles Down on Impeachment: Mueller Report Showed ‘Underlying Crime’

H/T Breitbart.

Rep. Justin Amash(RINO-MI)is proving just how delusional he really is.

If Meuller found any underlying crimes committed by President Trump he would have filed charges.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the first congressional Republican to accuse President Donald Trump of engaging in “impeachment” acts, doubled down Monday, claiming those who assert the president did not commit any crimes are relying on “several falsehoods.”

In a series of tweets, Amash claimed special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on now-debunked collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russa did, in fact, reveal the president acted illegally, arguing that “obstruction of justice does not require the prosecution of an underlying crime.”

People who say there were no underlying crimes and therefore the president could not have intended to illegally obstruct the investigation—and therefore cannot be impeached—are resting their argument on several falsehoods:

Often a lone GOP voice in Congress, Amash sent a series of tweets Saturday faulting both Trump and Attorney General William Barr over Mueller’s report. Mueller wrapped the investigation and submitted his report to Barr in late March. Barr then released a summary of Mueller’s “principal conclusions” and released a redacted version of the report in April.

Mueller found no criminal conspiracy between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia. In a summary to Congress, Barr said Team Mueller concluded that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia. Further, the attorney general stated Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump obstructed justice, stating that he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein determined that the president had not done so.

Amash said he reached four conclusions after carefully reading the redacted version of Mueller’s report, including that “President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.”

“Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” the congressman tweeted. He said the report “identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.”

President Trump and Republican lawmakers generally view the matter as “case closed,” as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), recently declared on the floor of the Senate.

On the other hand, Democrats who control the House are locked in a bitter standoff with the White House as it ignores lawmakers’ requests for the more complete version of Mueller’s report, the underlying evidence and witness testimony. Some Democrats wants the House to open impeachment hearings, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), has resisted, saying impeachment must be bipartisan.

On Monday, Michigan State Rep. Jim Lower (R) announced he will mount a primary challenge to Amash. He was expected to officially launch his primary challenge around July 4th, but moved up the announcement in the wake of Amash’s impeachment comments.

“Congressman Justin Amash tweets yesterday calling for President Trump’s impeachment show how out of touch he is with the truth and how out of touch he is with people he represents,” said Lower, per the Detriot Free Press. “He must be replaced and I am going to do it.”

GOP Congressman Amash Facing Primary Challenge After Calling for impeachment of Trump

H/T BarbWire.

I will be contributing to the campaign of  Michigan State Rep. Jim Lower so he can send Rep. Justin Amash(RINO-MI) to the unemployment line.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), who is of Palestinian and Syrian Christian descent, spoke out over the weekend, saying that according to the Mueller report, President Trump had committed impeachable offenses, including obstruction of justice.

Amash stated that the Mueller report indeed contained details of impeachable offenses committed by Trump.

President Trump responded by tweeting that Amash was just trying to get attention.

Michigan State Rep. Jim Lower, a Republican, said that he had been planning to run against Amash in the primary election, but decided to fast-track his announcement and campaign after Amash’s statement about Trump.

The Hill – Pro-Trump GOP state rep announces Amash primary challenge in Michigan – A Michigan state lawmaker on Monday announced he will mount a primary challenge to Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) after the congressman tweeted that he believed President Trump had committed impeachable offenses, according to the Detroit Free Press.

State Rep. Jim Lower (R) said he would challenge Amash in the Republican primary for his western Michigan seat rather than seek a third term in the state legislature.

Lower said he had been planning to run before Amash’s remarks but fast-tracked his announcement after the tweets this weekend despite originally planning to make it closer to July 4.

Amash drew fire from Trump on Sunday for tweeting that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report detailed “impeachable conduct” and that Attorney General William Barr had misrepresented Mueller’s findings…

I can’t help but believe that even though Amash is of Christian heritage, that his statements against Trump are more about his re-election efforts than about real justice.

Many parts of Michigan are becoming hotbeds for Muslims who hate Trump.

Therefore, by speaking out against Trump and calling for his impeachment, might just win him votes of Muslims and other Democrats in his district.

Trump Has A STERN WARNING For Iran And We Don’t Think He’s BLUFFING

H/T Clash Daily.

Iran had better know President Donald J.Trump is not kidding.

Iran needs to understand President Trump will hit them like the wrath of God. 

Iran has been making some threats against the United States. Here’s President Trump’s response…

The country that leads the world in funding terrorism is getting pretty bold in taunting the United States.

Last week, Politico reported that a briefing to lawmakers included a “credible and imminent threat” from Iran and its proxies against the U.S. On the floor of the Senate, Sen. Marco Rubio(R-FL) said that the threat was “serious and potentially imminent” and that the Trump administration is right to reposition military assets in order to be in a position to retaliate if an attack occurs.

The New York Post reported that on Saturday a top Iranian official was used a cruel 9/11 imagery to mock the American political system.

Trending: Here’s What Police Found In The Car Of Biden’s Son… But Refused To Prosecute

“The [US political] system has an apparently huge body, but suffers from osteoporosis,” Revolutionary Guard head Gen. Hossein Salami told the Fars news agency. “In fact, the US is like World Trade Building that collapses with a sudden hit.”

The remark came as tensions between Iran and the United States escalated.

But while Salami claimed the American system “has cracked and lost its strength,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif said his country is “not seeking war,” according to the state-run IRNA news agency.

President Trump is squashing the talk with his own bold language.

Former CIA Director, David Patreus, has said that Iran needs to be very careful as tensions rise with the Trump administration because it could “going to get worse” for them if they do something dumb.

“They are going to have to make a decision. Either they are going to have to really tighten their belt and keep tightening, because it’s going to get worse,” Petraeus said on ABC’s “This Week.” “There are going to be further screws tightening down in maximum pressure campaign and try to grit their teeth and get to November 2020 in hopes that their desired outcome emerges.”

He added: “They’re going to have to be very careful not to overplay their hand and result in some kind of response that is quite punitive.”

The Trump administration sent a carrier strike group and a bomber squadron to the Middle East in response to escalations in the region, including between Israelis and Palestinian militants in the Gaza strip. The move was to be a “clear and unmistakable message” to Iran.

“In response to a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings, the United States is deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the U.S. Central Command region to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force,” Bolton said. “The United States is not seeking war with the Iranian regime, but we are fully prepared to respond to any attack, whether by proxy, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or regular Iranian forces.”

Source: fox news

Last week, several ships were bombed of the coast of the United Arab Emirates. The initial U.S. assessment, as well as that from a foreign entity, says that Iran or Iranian-backed proxies committed the bombings.

Standing up to the bullies was the one response the Left’s political machine was completely unprepared for… and Trump knew it. It’s why we elected him in the first place.

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Well, this isn’t good.

The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached.

The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased.

From Politico:

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings.

His tweets:

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.

Lara Trump unconcerned by new 2020 election poll showing Biden, Sanders and Warren ahead of President Trump

H/T  Fox News.

These are the same pollsters that told us the Hildabeast Clinton would beat Donald Trump in 2016.

Lara Trump, a senior campaign adviser for her father-in-law President Trump, told “America’s Newsroom” hosts she’s unbothered by a new poll showing Sens. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of Trump.

The Fox News poll illustrated that if the 2020 election were held today, Joe Biden would be polling at 49 percent, Bernie Sanders at 46 percent and Elizabeth Warren at 43 percent, all higher than Donald Trump’s numbers of 38 percent.

“I say this all the time, but none of these people seem like a huge threat to me,” Lara Trump said during an interview Friday morning.

She went on to discuss perceived evidence of a successful Trump presidency, including increased job numbers and heightened GDP reports in 2019.

“He has real results to show here,” she said of President Trump. “Where all these other people, even Joe Biden, had eight years under the Obama administration to do a lot of great things for this country and we didn’t really see that,” she continued.

“So we still maintain we feel very comfortable no matter who the candidate is.”

Host Sandra Smith went on to detail another Fox News poll which indicated that the most important priority sought by Democratic voters in terms of a 2020 presidential candidate is that they be able to beat Donald Trump.

According to Smith, 73 percent of voters placed the importance of a candidate’s ability to halt Trump ahead of “high ethical standards, track records, new ideas.”

Lara Trump added that she thought those results were “sad” and credited it to Democrats continuing to be angry about the defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
