Republican Amash Breaks With Party, First To Raise Trump Impeachment

Tyler Durden's picture

In what may be the most material development of the day, moments ago GOP Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said the report that President Trump pressured ousted FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation would merit impeachment if true, becoming the first Republican lawmaker to break from the party and hint at impeachment.

Subseqeuentlly, when asked by The Hill if the details in the memo would merit impeachment if they're true, Amash reiterated "Yes.... But everybody gets a fair trial in this country," Amash added as he left a House GOP conference meeting.

When asked by another reporter whether he trusted Comey's word or Trump's, Amash said: "I think it's pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey."

According to the Hill, Amash has been one of only two House Republicans to cosponsor a Democratic bill to establish an independent commission to investigate Russia's role in the election. Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) has also endorsed the legislation.  

Amash is a frequent conservative critic of the Trump administration, and in the past has broken with the White House on a variety of issues, including healthcare reform, NSA surveillance and the Justice Department's new tougher sentencing guidelines.

And now all eyes on John McCain who many speculated would be the most vocal Republican opponents of Trump, and the first GOPer to recommend impeachment of his old nemesis.

Following the report, the USD tumbled to fresh intraday lows.

But my anonymous sources say it isn't true so we all good right? Once Bullshit cancels out another Bullshit right? Or do they come together and form a giant Bullshit type of Voltron? Add this turn coat to the list with McCain, Ryan and Graham.

Comey is already complicit.

Trump is certainly finding out who his friends are...

Nice to hear from Mr. High and Mighty.

I think there are not, fortunately they are made sturdy enough to hold two or three at a time...  should work out.

Trump needs to launch HIS OWN party.

ASAP and start a purge.. PHYSICALLY.

You don't just come from outside the Swamp and shake the tree and hope to get away with it. All bad things will fall on your head.

The Deep State planned this thing when they saw Trump winning presidency was imminent. So expect comey's BS memo to be "real" and taken seriously. 

They even pulled out a manchurian candidate with a fake birth certificate, a lousy memo with a prior date is piece of cake.

"Justin Amash" sounds like a great moonshiner name.

Trump should have accidentally met Comey on the tarmac of a random airfield as he just happened to be passing in his plane, .

everything would have been ok then provided he only talked about golf and the grandkids etc etc...

Like that democrat guy did to the democrat AG, what's his name...

they all start to run together but this amash sounds like a real self hating palestinian:

the zios seem serious; i wonder when president trump will start to get the same.

put some real resources on seth rich and, as backup, 9-11.

then it could be like when the indians with bows and arrows find out about the gatling gun in the conestoga.

Maybe he can do that after he loses his seat.

Democrats prove their continued mental deficiencies once again as they try to oust Trump. Trump is a barrier to the GOP and Pence would be just as big a war monger as Killary.

Will the Dems be shocked when they lose more seats in 2018? Ryan and this jagoff should flip to blue.

All of these cocksuckers , where were they when we needed them on the Hillary emails and A Weiner case that is still sitting around ? Those are both real crimes and these assholes are going along with enuendo and utter bullshit stories created by PRAVDA/MSM and the DEM machine of corruption !

Trump is being undermined with complete horse shit BS storeies fabricated deliberately























NoDebt's picture

The only thing going to save Trump's presidency now is a war.  Nixon ended the Vietnam War and look what they did to him shortly after.

Attack Syria. He bombed Syria to improve his approval ratings so he might go for the full surge/invasion from Jordan.

Amash was always a Never-Trumper.

A useless waste of space who wants an easy career being part of the "opposition party", and not someone who ever expected to have to actually work for a living, ie "govern".

Justin "The Great Disappointment" Amash strikes again.

Trump is losing. Consequently, he has no friends in DC. Trump is playing his card like he deliberately wants to lose.

Soon, one way or another, we will have another President very soon. This BS cannot continue too long and Trump is not fighting back.

thebigunit's picture

Trump will be fine.  Trump's base is sticking with him.

If the election were held today, Trump would still beat Hillary.

Trump is losing. Consequently, he has no friends in DC. 

Harry Truman once said, "If you want a friend in Washington, buy a dog."

If the GOP continues on this path and goes for impeachment THEY ARE DONE as a party. The GOP gets the support it does because of Trump. People are fed up with the GOP going-along-to-get-along, sacrificing their own for the sake of trying to be liked by the presstitutes. They are so out of touch and insulated from reality that they can't see this is sheer suicide.

And Hillary has friends?

Name one.

Republican Amash Breaks With Party, Says If True Comey Memo Merits Impeachment

My response: Unbelievable!!!! Amash, how about you spend your time prosecuting CLINTON for her crimes??

 President TRUMP is America's Nineveh moment. 

If this TRUMP BASHING doesn't stop, the following quotation will become America's nightmare.

Thomas Jefferson ...


If GOD ever gave America true JUSTICE, America would be laid waste including all of its citizens and it markets!!!!!

AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC and RINO leaders should careful what they wish for because it might become a nightmare from which they will be fleeing for their lives.

Personnaly, I hope we really get the CORRECTION that is way overdue. I want to watch the DEMOCRATS and RINOs explain to the American people why they are worth less because it was in the nations best interest to bash President TRUMP.

Warthog777's picture

ooh! ooh! I know....

They'll blame the crash on Trump?

thebigunit's picture

Amash breaks with WHICH Party?

Republican Amash Breaks With Party, . . .

There's the Conservatives, the Tea Party,  the RINO's, the Establishment, the Cronies, the Never Trumpers, etc. etc.

Probably, Amash and McCain make up their own party.

Mercuryquicksilver's picture

Exactly my thoughts. Every Republican pushing for impeachment is a compromised child rapist. This has nothing to do with "Dems Lost" or "Russia" or "Globalism."  Its simply a matter of delaying/haulting pedophile investigation and prosecution.

They are cornered child rapists. Probably dangerious.

Amen sir!

I understand one third of CONgress is compromised.  Then there are the judges. Swamp.

This is what you get when there are not term limits.

If True Comey Memo Is True; remember, you can write any memo up from thin air and it doesn't make it true. A man like Comey can do anything...
Koba the Dread's picture

Your confusion stupifies the air around this issue. The Memo Comey says he has would be a memo from President Trump to Comey, one signed by President Trump.

Let's assume that Comey has such a memo in his hands. So what?  On a scale of egregious actions taken by American presidents, this memo must rate almost at the bottom. Looking up from it, one sees an infinite mountain of impeachable offenses, criminal offenses that reach to heaven--and none of them is by Trump. How's about working from the oldest to the newest offense against America in that order. By the time Trump's tiny little memo is up for consideration, he and we will all be dead several hundred years ago.

"Froze25": During the election my college-aged son came up with a theory that we've reached the Bullshit Singularity, where everything has been taken over by bullshit and the bullshit is becoming self-aware.  I think we reached that point some time ago, but overall I think he's right.

froze25's picture

I like that "Bullshit Singularity". Thank you.

NotApplicable's picture

I agree, but I wouldn't call it self-aware, though.

More like the signal to noise ratio is forever locked down on zero. Which means it's pretty much pointless to try to talk to anyone about anything, any longer.

Thanks, MSM!
