Trump calls pro-impeachment Republican 'total lightweight'

After all, it was a rising tide of Republican disgust that eventually became the unstoppable force that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon in 1974.

Barr released a 4-page summary of Mueller's 400-page report in March, which stated the investigation found neither Trump nor any of his aides conspired or coordinated with the Russian government during the election, bud did not find significant evidence to exonerate Trump of obstructing justice.

Amash is disputing Attorney General William Barr's portrayal of the Mueller report's findings.

But the fact that Romney would not join Amash on the impeachment stage is an indication of the impenetrable wall of opposition the party is likely to erect should the Democrats initiate proceedings. ". It's a courageous statement". And I also believe that an impeachment call is not only something that relates to the law, but also considers practicality and politics.

He said that if the MI lawmaker had "actually read the biased Mueller Report ... he would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION..."

The Senator also said that those who are calling for impeachment - primarily Democrats - need to look at who Trump's jury would be - the Senate - and realize "they're simply not there either".

Even Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, who was dismayed by the Mueller report's catalog of furtive meetings between Trump aides and potential evidence of obstruction, stopped short of endorsing Amash.

After explaining that he had read the full report, reviewed pertinent statements and testimony and thoroughly discussed the matter with his staff, Amash criticized Attorney General Bill Barr in a pair of tweets by arguing that "in comparing Barr's principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller's report, it is clear that Barr meant to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller's analysis and findings". "Leo is doing his best to minimize his exposure to Trump on this visit, but he is in a tricky position, as practically every American digital company's European headquarters are in Ireland", said the source. 'The Senate is certainly not there, either'.

The White House and the Department of Justice did not immediately respond to requests for comments about Amash's tweets.

The chair of the Republican National Committee publicly lashed out at a GOP congressman on Saturday after he detailed why President Donald Trump must be impeached.

Romney added that he respects Amash and believes that his statement is courageous, but "the American people just aren't there".

In a series of tweets, Amash - a member of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus - said "few members of Congress even read Mueller's report", which identified "multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice".

The Congressman's intervention, on Twitter, came as the Democrats remained divided on whether to push for Mr Trump's impeachment. "But it did not suggest to me this was a time to call for impeachment".

Even if the Democratic-controlled House impeached Trump, the Republican-controlled Senate would nearly certainly reject removing Trump from office.
