Rep. Amash Faces Pro-Trump Challenger After Impeachment Remarks

Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) faces a pro-Trump primary challenger after tweeting over the weekend that the president has “engaged in impeachable conduct.”

Michigan State Rep. Jim Lower was quick to criticize Amash and announced his run for Congress today.

WWMT reports that Lower released a statement saying, “I am a Pro-Trump, Pro-Life, Pro-Jobs, Pro-2nd Amendment, Pro-Family Values Republican. Amash has not only failed to support President Trump as the President works to make the United States stronger and safer, he has now united with radical liberals like Democratic Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit) to try and bring down our President. He must be replaced and I am going to do it.”

On Saturday, Amash made headlines as the first Republican Congressman to call for Trump’s impeachment.

He tweeted:

“Here are my principal conclusions:

1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report.
2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.
3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances.
4. Few members of Congress have read the report.”

On Sunday, President Trump responded to Amash, calling him a “total lightweight.”

He wrote, “Never a fan of @justinamash, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy. If he actually read the biased Mueller Report, “composed” by 18 Angry Dems who hated Trump….”
