West Michigan voters are backing their GOP congressman’s calls for impeachment: ‘Nothing but positive comments’

President Donald Trump’s allies on Capitol Hill are lashing out at the first Republican Congressman to back impeachment.

On Saturday, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) made a powerful case for impeachment, which he then pushed again on Monday.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), who chairs the far-right House Freedom Caucus, said they will be discussing whether to eject Amash from the group.

Meadows claimed that Amash would have a tough time getting re-elected after backing impeachment.

“Anytime that you come out against the president of your own party makes it very difficult to support in any primary challenge,” Meadows argued.

But Marcy Wheeler, a top national security expert who lives in Michigan, disagreed.

“I’ve heard nothing but positive comments about Amash’s statements. A lot of really enthusiastic comments and surprise,” Wheeler said. “But what does Mark Meadows know [about] West Michigan?”

“When I say I’ve heard nothing but positive comments, I don’t mean, second hand heard via DC. I mean Amash’s comments have been the topic [of] very spirited discussions every time I leave the house in Amash’s district,” she noted.

Internet slams ex-Trump aide for bragging he’ll be loyal to the president when he testifies before Congress

Published

On Tuesday, ahead of his public testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski took to Twitter to effectively boast that he will parrot the president's talking points and offer nothing new to House Democrats — and tease an upcoming run for Senate in 2020:

Excited about the opportunity to remind the American people today there was no collusion no obstruction. There were lots of angry Democrats who tried to take down a duly elected President. Tune in. #Senate2020.
