    Long Twitter thread from Justin Amash. He’s no Republican squish either, he’s very conservative/libertarian.

    I do not want Congress to prejudge this, but it is their duty to decide whether or not to impeach and whether or not to convict. Both sides needs to stop playing politics. If he's innocent, then fine, and move on. If he's guilty, then impeach him and convict him. What mustn't happen is the ongoing internecine nonsense.

    IMO there is case to answer and the Mueller report invites Congressional investigation rather than precluding it. However, that investigation doesn't have to be some long drawn-out spectacle for Democratic or GOP party purposes.

    Which cannot happen.

    There are too many who are invested in this administration to let it go down in flames before the next election. There are still judge seats to fill, more profit to be wrung, more personal & philosophical quests to be fulfilled, and more partisan games to be played.

    The tired refrain of "both sides must blah blah", is pretty much the same as "we need rainbows & unicorns to lead our way to love". It's honestly going to take more individuals like Amash to finally hit their own personal tipping points on what is acceptable. Only with the likes of McConnell & Graham, I'm afraid everything going down in flames will only seem like a hint to some that something maybe going wrong.

    Let's be real. Trump has never heard of Justin and is only lashing out like a toddler because he came forward..

    Justin Amash has around 200K Twitter followers. Nobody knew who he was. Now Trump has given the media a free pass to talk about him on every newscast. Instead or ignoring it and saying “Justin who?” if asked he’s elevated the guy. I say it all the time but it really is true: Trump is a #moron.

    I’m confused the Mueller report is biased yet he claims absolves him? That’s some pretty bad bias right there

    And a baby. Always the victim. Amash was spot on. Especially about reading the report. Which is why it's so funny that Trump is trying to make it seem Amash didn't read it. We know Trump hasn't.

    One of the biggest questions for the past couple of years has been: can Trump read at all?

    He appears to be functionally (though more like disfunctionally) illiterate.

    Wasn't aware that the GOP had a Democratic Macaw.
    Interesting.
