Justin Amash is a charter member of the Freedom caucus but he votes with the Democrats more than he votes with the Republicans. He is the only Republican to fight against Trump’s Border Emergency Declaration and he was the only Republican to vote to allow illegals to vote.
But, today, the Freedom Caucus took a vote and they unanimously voted to condemn Justin Amash.
What puzzles me is why they didn’t revoke his membership. He never shows up for the meetings and he wasn’t there today. State Rep Jim Lower announced he is running against Amash in 2020. I will be making a donation to whoever has the best chance of winning the primary and put Amash on the unemployment line.
The conservative House Freedom Caucus condemned member Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash Monday after his Saturday comments that President Donald Trump “engaged in impeachable conduct.”
Every caucus member at the meeting Monday opposed Amash’s impeachment stance, Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said, according to Politico. Amash was not at the meeting and has shown up for virtually no meetings the entire year, sources told Politico.
“It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says,” Jordan said after the meeting, according to Politico
Jordan also said he had talked to Amash Saturday night to ask, “What are you doing?”
But Amash is still set to keep his membership in the Freedom Caucus even though he threatened to leave in 2018 after Trump went on the warpath against former Republican South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, reported Politico. Sanford is an ex-member of the caucus.
The Freedom Caucus vote could be just the beginning of Amash’s troubles. Republican state Rep. Jim Lower will challenge Amash for the seat in Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, Lower told the Detroit Free Press Monday.
Amash broke with his party to criticize Trump’s conduct and accuse Attorney General William Barr of “deliberately” misrepresenting special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report in Barr’s summary.
