Appearing on CNN on Sunday morning, GOP strategist Tara Setmayer backed up Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) for his tweets saying Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses by saying that anyone can see that Amash is correct.
Speaking with “New Day” host Victor Blackwell, Setmayrer was critical of other Republicans who have remained silent.
“I think it’s clear that the Republicans have been cowards to the point they have debased themselves in unprincipled ways that I don’t think a lot of us ever thought was possible — to pledge to Trump because they are afraid of losing an election,” she remarked before adding, “Justin Amash is in Michigan where Donald Trump is not very popular.”
Noting Amash’s series of Saturday afternoon tweets stating his case against Trump, Setmayer agreed, saying, “Anyone who is intellectually honest would say the same thing.”
She also praised Amash for being the only Republican to ask probing questions of Trump fixer Michael Cohen in a congressional hearing — while his GOP brethren harassed the now-imprisoned lawyer.

Sarah Sanders’ replacement ‘won’t last one day’ if they won’t lie for Trump like she did: CNN host
During a panel discussion on White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' plan to depart her job working for President Donald Trump, CNN host Kate Bolduan scoffed at the idea that the president will employ anyone who doesn't lie like he does.
Speaking with CNN media analyst Brian Stelter, Bolduan asked about Sanders contentious tenure and her abrasive nature with the press.
"Essentially the post hasn't been filled in the traditional sense for a long time," Stelter explained. "95 days without a traditional briefing. Clearly, he's going to appoint somebody. The white house communications director role hasn't been filled in the way it traditionally is."
Ex-White House aide snaps at CNN’s Camerota after she calls out Sarah Sander’s lies
In a frequently contentious interview with CNN's Alisyn Camerota, former White House Communications director Anthony Scaramucci snapped at the CNN host when she pointed out exiting White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders' history of lying and attacking the press.
Asked about the timing of Sanders' departure, Scaramucci said the spokesperson had done her time -- one year serving on then-candidate Donald Trump's campaign and two years in the White House.
"She did a great job," Scaramucci attempted. "I know people have mixed views of her in places like this but I love her and think she did a great job and she is as an honest broker."
