GOP rep: Trump’s done a lot that meets ‘threshold for impeachment’

[Ed. – Apparently, not playing along in non-mandatory ways with a made-up “process,” as if you might be guilty of some ill-defined thing you know you’re not guilty of, now constitutes the “threshold for impeachment.”   If that were actually true, this government we have would not, in fact, be worth keeping.]

A Michigan Republican and member of the House Freedom Caucus broke with his party Saturday in a rare series of tweets accusing President Trump of “impeachable conduct.”

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) tweeted Saturday that the president’s actions to potentially obstruct the now-shuttered special counsel investigation warrant impeachment by the House. He also accused Attorney General William Barr of “deliberately misrepresenting” Robert Mueller’s report of the investigation’s findings.

“Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report,” Amash wrote Saturday afternoon.
