Justin Amash @justinamash

People who say there were no underlying crimes and therefore the president could not have intended to illegally obstruct the investigation—and therefore cannot be impeached—are resting their argument on several falsehoods:
ersation

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

1. They say there were no underlying crimes.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

In fact, there were many crimes revealed by the investigation, some of which were charged, and some of which were not but are nonetheless described in Mueller’s report.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

2. They say obstruction of justice requires an underlying crime.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

In fact, obstruction of justice does not require the prosecution of an underlying crime, and there is a logical reason for that. Prosecutors might not charge a crime precisely *because* obstruction of justice denied them timely access to evidence that could lead to a prosecution.

Justin Amash @justinamash2 hours ago

If an underlying crime were required, then prosecutors could charge obstruction of justice only if it were unsuccessful in completely obstructing the investigation. This would make no sense.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

3. They imply the president should be permitted to use any means to end what he claims to be a frivolous investigation, no matter how unreasonable his claim.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

In fact, the president could not have known whether every single person Mueller investigated did or did not commit any crimes.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

4. They imply “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” requires charges of a statutory crime or misdemeanor.

Justin Amash @justinamash 2 hours ago

In fact, “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined in the Constitution and does not require corresponding statutory charges. The context implies conduct that violates the public trust—and that view is echoed by the Framers of the Constitution and early American scholars.

Stand strong @justinamash. Stay focused. Tell the American people the truth. And if the traitors in the #GOP want to attack you, primary you, etc., then let the chips fall where they may. Maybe Congress isn’t the place for you to be your best self. Real patriots salute you!

If the Republican party is still in existence in 3-4 years, I am confident you will be its new leader.

Congrats on having the guts to do what's right.

Your bravery has not gone unnoticed!

I may not generally agree with your politics, but I truly appreciate your candor and courage. I can only hope more of your colleagues understand the implications of their poor decisions and come around to your way of thinking. This is not right or left, it's right or wrong!

Trump is a public health crisis – and ‘stress management’ isn’t enough: Noted neurologist


Donald Trump’s presidency has caused a large increase in self-reported levels of stress among the American people. This will impact their health for generations. A similar dynamic is taking place in Europe and other parts of the world where authoritarian and other forma of extremist or reactionary politics have taken hold. Authoritarianism is not just a political and moral crisis — it is a public health crisis as well.

BREAKING: Trump is intimidating another witness, telling Don McGahn to defy a Congressional subpoena by not testifying tomorrow. This will backfire for Trump spectacularly if McGahn shows up anyways, and actually testifies. If he doesn’t show, Congress needs to lock McGahn up.

Can Justin Amash, aka #JustinSmash, recommend a good spine transplant surgeon?
I know of 197 House and 53 Senate GOP who should be looking.

BREAKING: Chairman Nadler says Judiciary Cmte will convene as planned tomorrow: “McGahn is expected to appear as legally required.” And says Mueller’s Report “documents a shocking pattern of obstruction.” If McGahn testifies, he’ll confirm Trump obstructed.

Trump hasn’t read The Mueller Report. But he’s been told what’s in it. And he’s afraid. It contains the most damning evidence of criminality of any President in US history. He & his consigliere AG Barr have been lying about what’s in it. Congress, it’s time for the truth.

Sr Hse Democrat who asked they not be identified asserted that Pelosi will likely have to switch her position on impeachment “within the next two weeks.”

The Democrat argued that “the vast majority of us are for impeachment.”

Trump AGAIN "joking" about serving more than 2 terms. Here is where I remind you he keeps sending up these trials balloons about ending term limits or extending this time in office, almost weekly. He means it! Take this seriously. He will never leave if given the chance.

Aaron Rupar @atrupar

Trump jokes about serving as many as 5 terms as president.

"And maybe if we really like it a lot and if things keep…
