Justin Amash, Congress’ Only Libertarian Representative, Will Not Seek Re-election

On Thursday, Rep. Justin Amash, the only Libertarian representative in Congress, announced he would not seek reelection.

Amash, who has represented Michigan’s 3rd district since 2011, said he loved working in Congress, but it was his choice not to stay.

Amash is a vocal critic of President Trump’s, having quit the GOP  last year after calling for Trump’s impeachment when reading the Mueller report. Amash claimed that Trump had “engaged in specific actions” that “meet the threshold for impeachment,” even though the report said that there was no conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, which should have put the  narrative of “Russian collusion” to bed once and for all.

Amash then became an independent before joining the Libertarian Party in April of this year, and made a name for himself while exploring a possible third-party run for President, which he later decided against.

It became clear that Amash, while once a principled conservative, became infected with Trump derangement syndrome, which ended his career. As a great man would say, “sad!”
