Donald Trump and Republicans melt down after Rep. Justin Amash calls for his impeachment in a blistering Twitter thread after he read the unredacted Mueller report.
Trump tweeted: “Never a fan of @, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy. If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, “composed” by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump, he would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO collusion and ultimately no obstruction.”
He followed that up with a second unhinged tweet: Anyway, how do you Obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!”

Of course, Trump was triggered by Amash’s series of tweets: “President Trump engaged in impeachable conduct” and “Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.”
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.

RNC chairman Ronna Romney McDaniel led the GOP meltdown starting minutes after Amash’s Twitter thread went viral: “It’s sad to see Congressman Amash parroting the Democrats talking points on Russia.”
It’s sad to see Congressman Amash parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia.
The only people still fixated on the Russia collusion hoax are political foes of @realDonaldTrump hoping to defeat him in 2020 by any desperate means possible.

Serial liar Kaleigh McEnany also spun out on Twitter over Amash’s tweets: “Justin Amash was off his rocker long before his attention-seeking comments about Donald Trump.”
Justin Amash was off his rocker long before his attention-seeking comments about @realDonaldTrump He was…
– 1 of 14 to vote vs. opioid legislation
– 1 of 10 to vote vs. $ to prevent school violence
– 1 of 35 to vote vs. making targeted attacks on officers a federal crime

Let’s put this all in context….Republicans are attacking Justin Amash for taking a stand for what’s right while they kiss the ring of a con man and a fraud. Neither Ronna Romney McDaniel nor Kaleigh McEnany have read the unredacted Mueller report. So, who is parroting who?
