On Thursday, as House Democrats prepared to vote on the formal resolution codifying the rules of the impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) took to Twitter to warn his former Republican colleagues that their defenses of Trump today will be poorly judged by future generations:

Amash, a libertarian lawmaker who was elected as a Republican in the 2010 Tea Party wave and co-founded the far-right House Freedom Caucus, fell out with the party and eventually separated with them over his opposition to Trump's misconduct. He is widely expected to support Democrats in the impeachment proceedings.
