Mueller says he could not charge Trump as Congress weighs impeachment

Catherine Rampell Trump’s narrative is nonsense. So why is the media buying Trump supporter confronts Justin Amash at town hall for endorsing impeachment, and it gets very heated

In a recent interview with CNN, Amash revealed that a few of his Republican colleagues have privately sympathized with his Trump impeachment remarks.

The only Democratic member of Utah's congressional delegation said Wednesday there's still a "high bar" for impeaching President Donald Trump after the special counsel in the Russian investigation did not exonerate him. "No matter what any individual member of Congress wants to do, if the speaker is not on board, the thing is not happening and that's true under Paul Ryan and it's true under Nancy Pelosi, so I think it would be appropriate to proceed with that".

"Nobody has fought more against FISA than me", Amash said, noting he voted against reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 2018 after House leadership defeated his measure that would have limited warrantless surveillance.

A redacted version of Mueller's report was published in April, concluding that Russia repeatedly interfered in the 2016 election and that Trump's election campaign had multiple contacts with Russian officials, but did not establish a criminal conspiracy with Moscow to win the White House.

"So many of us are upset for him to come out and basically side with the Democrats", said Bonnie Keller.

Mueller's report declined to make a judgment on whether Trump obstructed justice, although it outlined 10 instances in which Trump tried to have Mueller fired or otherwise impede the investigation.

"Under the current administration", he added, "spending is skyrocketing, so spending has gone way up, and Republicans unfortunately, haven't said that much about it, and I continue to reduce spending at the federal level". "We can't let conduct like that go unchecked".

Defending his stance, Amash told supporters and opponents that Congress "has a duty to keep the president in check". "I'm a principled constitutional conservative who has stayed consistent regardless of whether we have President Obama in office or President Trump". Nonetheless, we have a job to do.

"I don't believe you can criminally indict a sitting president - I think that's what the founders believed", Amash said during a town hall event in Grand Rapids on Tuesday.
