Representative Justin Amash, the only Congressional Republican who publicly argues that President Donald Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct, announced he is quitting the GOP.
Amash has come under fire from President Trump for his independence as a Libertarian-leaning Republican in the past. He’s now making it official.
The Michigan lawmaker is becoming an independent.
In an op-ed published by the Washington Post today, Amash wrote: “modern politics is trapped in a partisan death spiral.” He says that is why he’s leaving the GOP.
Amash is the only Republican representative in Congress to accuse the president of impeachable acts.
In the op-ed Amash says partisanship is the people’s worst enemy.
President Trump now taking it to Twitter where he lashes out criticizing Amash, calling him disloyal and a total loser.
