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.

CNN’s Cuomo demolishes Rudy Giuliani’s conspiracy theory about Biden and Ukraine
Last week, CNN's Chris Cuomo played host to President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who went off on a half-intelligible rant about former Vice President Joe Biden and tried to paint him as corrupt for fighting to remove a Ukrainian prosecutor.
"For us it's about whether or not people in power are telling you the truth, and Rudy Giuliani was not telling you the truth on things that matter," said Cuomo. "So we wanted to check the holes in the president's theory several times on this show. It's not just about the Biden family, it about other things that Rudy Giuliani's calling out and we went to the source."
Trump’s Ukraine stunt was just the beginning — he will do whatever it takes to poison the 2020 election
On Monday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," New York Times political editor Patrick Healy dropped an ominous warning about President Donald Trump's push for Ukraine to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden: Trump is going to keep doing this, no matter the circumstance and no matter the Democratic nominee, in his desperation to win re-election.
"The reality is, President Trump has been spreading this what looks like pretty clear misinformation for a while now in terms of these unsubstantiated allegations about Joe Biden," said Healy. "And the reality is, this is how President Trump plans to run his re-election campaign, whether it's Joe Biden or frankly any other Democrat who comes out."
An ‘obvious quid pro quo’ the American people must punish: CNN’s Toobin goes off on Trump’s Ukraine plot
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin broke down the "obvious" quid pro quo demand in President Donald Trump's attempt to pressure Ukraine into hunting for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
"What do you think, Jeffrey?" asked host Wolf Blitzer. "Does it sound like the president tied that military aid to his request to investigate the Bidens?"
"Of course. Of course," said Toobin. "The only reason the Ukrainian president is interested in talking to the president is because he wants this aid. And the president says, as he's acknowledging, go and investigate Biden. This is an obvious quid pro quo, and it's a quid pro quo not for the benefit of the American people, not for the benefit of our national interests — it's a quid pro quo to help Donald Trump get reelected."
