Rep. Amash Discusses Potential Trump Impeachment
Well ladies and gentlemen we have the first elected Republican politician to discuss the "I" word and that "I" word is impeachment, in response to a reporters question.
Guess who the first elected Republican politician was, well our own Congressman Justin Amash who was elected to serve Michigan's 3rd district. He is the congressman for many of my listeners as well as myself.
Responding to a question from a Hill.com reporter, Congressmen Amash agreed today that President Trump could face impeachment proceedings if allegations that he urged the former FBI director to drop an investigation are actually proven true. How they would do that without tapes I do not know.
As reported by TheHill.com Congressman Justin Amash stated today:
if the reports about Trump's pressure on Comey are true, it would merit impeachment.
As you probably had heard already The New York Times reported yesterday that someone close to former FBI Director Comey had written notes after a meeting with President Trump that stated that President Trump tried to pressure Comey to stop investigating General Flynn.
According to these notes allegedly written by FBI Director Comey after the February meeting, the president told Comey:
I hope you can let this go. I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.
Now you must know that the New York Times did not actually see any memo or written notes they reported that someone read part of it to them. Can you believe it, they never even saw the notes they are just trusting an anonymous source.
When Congressman Amash was asked by The Hill if the details in the memo would merit impeachment if they're true, Amash replied:
Yes. But everybody gets a fair trial in this country
Congressman Amash was then 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
All I can say is WOW!
Congressman Amash answers a very leading question instead of deflecting the question in which the answer is now being used by Democrats everywhere to further impugn the President.
