    Interesting tweet from Representative Justin Amash (R)

    Justin Amash on Twitter

    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.​

    Did we look at justin Amash at all? Not the 1st time he talked about Trump. He knows how to get the DEMS to praise him.

    I agree with him on the first three things, and think he's probably right on the 4th, although I have no direct knowledge of how many in Congress have actually read the report.

    He is either planning to leave the Republican Party, Congress, or both.

    Yes, Democrats are fine, when a republican tells the truth. Sadly, a lot of the Conservative/ Republicans seems to have blinders on. When it comes to Trump. And turn on any Conservative / Republican ,that tell the truth about Trump.

    Amash is a member of the Conservative Freedom Caucus and also got an "A" Liberty Score from the Conservative Review.

    Maybe he's just not one to bow down to Trump.

    He must care more about the country than his loyalty to Trumpism.

    Yeah, that's the only reason he's doing this...

    What a bizarre claim. Because Freedom Works has given him no less than a 97% rating during his entire time in Congress.
    Justin Amash | FreedomWorks Key Voting Record

    Is this like where John McCain was claimed not to be a Conservative despite his high ratings from the American Conservative Union?

    Edit - Amash's ACU rating is 88%.

    Not sure how one is "not a Conservative" when the ACU gives his voting record a near A rating.

    Well, now that he's demonstrated disloyalty to its master, he has little choice, does he?

    I doubt that Trump can unseat every Congressman and Senator. He is a weak president.

    I believe that's actually called the "Freedom Caucus."

    Notice also that the score you are referring to is the LIBERTY score, not the "Conservative" voting score.

    So two misunderstandings there, but if you study his voting record you will figure this out.

    And what have you learned from studying his voting record?

    So the "Freedom Caucus" is made up of liberals and the LIBERTY score is about how liberal a person is? (After all, "liberty" and "liberal" are almost the same word.)

    Or maybe Amash is a liberal because he fought against indefinite detention in the NDAA since he felt the need to "liberate" people?

    Or maybe your own equiLIBrium is off track and you are in great danger by gLIBly following God Emperor Trump?

    Wait, would that make *you* a liberal too? Ohhh it only gets more and more terrible by the moment! *holds head*
