Justin Amash, the only Republican in Congress to accuse President Trump of impeachable conduct gave a speech in his Michigan district Tuesday, receiving a standing ovation from many who saluted his “courage” while also debating with some former supporters who claim he’s embracing a Democratic “smear attack” against president Trump.
During this two hour event, originally scheduled to last one hour, fifth-term Rep. Justin Amash answered more than two-dozen questions from a crowd of about 900 in high school auditorium in Grand Rapids.
According to Justin, those who read Robert Mueller’s report on Mr. Trump’s conduct during and after the 2016 presidential election will be “appalled.” He also said Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to hold the majority in the House of Representatives rather than upholding the law.
“We can’t let conduct like that go unchecked,” Amash said. “Congress has a duty to keep the president in check.”
Two Republicans are running against Amash, who has not ruled out potentially running as a Libertarian for president.
“I’ve been your supporter since you started running for Congress, and I can’t tell you how disappointed I am,” said Diane Luke of Grand Rapids.
In an intense debate with Anna Timmer of Grand Rapids, she told Amash a lot of people cheering him on “most likely didn’t vote for you.” She said she made hundreds of calls on his behalf during his first congressional campaign, in 2010, and has voted for him every two years.
“You know you have no future in this district as a Republican,” Anna said.
