Conservative pundit Dan Bongino is calling out anti-Trump Congressman Justin Amash to leave the Republican Party.
Amash made recent headlines when he called for President Trump’s impeachment base don the Mueller report, which vindicated him of any collusion with Russia.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, the Michigan congressman said attempts to obstruct justice as outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election amounted to “impeachable conduct”. He also accused the attorney general, William Barr, of misleading the US public.
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.

Amash’s actions outraged Trump supporters, who in turn, attacked him for his covert business dealings with China.
Big League Politics reported that while Amash acts like his support of impeachment is rooted in constitutional grounds, there may be a financial motive to his opposition to Trump. It has been revealed that Amash has significant business interests in China that may be harmed by Trump’s ‘America First’ trade policies.
In Amash’s financial disclosure forms for the year of 2015, he was shown as receiving up to $1 million in annual income due to his ownership stake in Michigan Industrial Tools (MIT). MIT is the parent company of Tekton Tools, Amash’s family business, that benefits directly from Chinese manufacturing.
An article from MLive in 2010 exposed Amash as being the co-owner of Dynamic Source International (DSI), a Chinese company that was once an MIT supplier. Amash’s family have been outspoken advocates of the globalist trade status quo for many years.

A new report today, indicates Amash will be facing a pro-Trump primary candidate in Michigan.
Jim Lower used to be a fan of 3rd District Congressman Justin Amash.
“I helped with his campaign,” the Republican state representative for the 70th District told the Daily News. “Hell, I voted for Amash in ’10, ’12 and ’14.
“At the time, I believed in what he was doing, but now I don’t,” he said. “I’ve just been very disenchanted.”
Lower, who recently moved from Cedar Lake in the 4th District to Eureka Township near Greenville in the 3rd District, has quietly been planning to primary Amash for the past two months and planned to make an announcement on July 4.
Then the weekend happened.
On Saturday afternoon, Amash, a libertarian Republican, posted a lengthy thread on Twitter alleging that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” the Mueller report and that President Donald Trump engaged in “impeachable conduct.”
By Saturday night, Lower had decided to move up his announcement.
“I was like, I can’t let this go by without commenting on it,” Lower said. “It’s not every day your Congressman says your president should be impeached.”
Lower will run in the 2020 primary election against Amash, pitting Republicans who support Trump (Lower’s base) against conservatives who question the current status of the Republican party (Amash’s base). The 3rd Congressional District covers all of Barry, Calhoun and Ionia counties, northern Kent County and the cities of Grand Rapids and East Grand Rapids, and Eureka Township in Montcalm County.
