A Republican opens impeachment door

Posted By on Wed, May 17, 2017 at 10:15 AM

A Republican member of Congress has finally gone beyond being "troubled" by revelations about Donald Trump's conduct in office. He is Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan.

Asked if the new revelations that President Trump pressured then-FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation of national security advisor Mike Flynn’s communications with the Russian government could be grounds for impeachment, Amash told reporters: “If the allegations are true, yes. But everybody in this country gets a fair trial, including the president.”

Asked who he trusts more if the matter comes down to a dispute between Comey’s memos versus Trump’s account of their conversations, Amash said: “I think it’s pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey.”
To the battlements Trumpsters! This apostasy cannot stand!
