Glad he’s gone…
Rep. Justin Amash announced this morning in an opinion piece for The Washington Post that he was leaving the Republican Party.
Amash is the only Republican in Congress to call for President Trump’s impeachment.
“Representative Justin Amash, a frequent critic of Republican President Donald Trump, said on Thursday that he was quitting the Republican Party, saying politicians have become more loyal to their parties than to the American people.”
“‘Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party. No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us,’ Amash, of Michigan, said in a Washington Post opinion piece published on the U.S. Independence Day holiday.”

I’m asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it.”
Amash didn’t mention the President by name, but his decision to abandon the party comes after months of escalating criticism not just of the President but of his own colleagues for their failure to hold Trump to account, specifically for the actions detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the 2016 election and its aftermath. …
