Cocktalis & Popcorn: Does Justin Amash Know Mariia Butina? - He Resigned From House Freedom Caucus

Justin Amash if from Michigan.

Justin Amish knows John Conyers, Jr.

Justin Amash read the Mueller Report that was in the basement of the Rayburn Building, for six weeks, where only a handful of Members took the opportunity to look at it.

Grand Rapids is in his Congressional District, where the DeVos Dynasty was created.

Justin Amash knows about Medicaid Fraud in Child Welfare, Alpha Bank and Spectrum Health.

Justin Amash knows about the Kent County Land Bank.

Justin Amash knows about the Michigan GOP and its relations with the NRA.

Justin Amash knows about SIGTARP.

I am wondering if Justin Amash knows Mariia Butina.

We should definitely ask him in House Judiciary impeachment proceedings.



Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash resigned from the House Freedom Caucus Monday, citing his efforts to not be “a further distraction for the group.”

“I have the highest regard for [the caucus], and they’re my close friends,” Amash, who is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus and the lone Republican of the group to call for impeaching the president, told CNN. “I didn’t want to be a further distraction for the group.”

The libertarian congressman’s decision comes in the wake of a series of tweets last month accusing President Donald Trump of having committed “impeachable offenses.”

“Here are my principal conclusions,” Amash, an outspoken GOP critic of the president, on Twitter last month. “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.”

“Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” Amash continued.

The Michigan lawmaker’s stand likely alienated him from many of his Republican colleagues. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul called the Mueller Report itself the “antithesis of libertarianism” when discussing Amash’s position. GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel accused him of “parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia.”

Amash told Freedom Caucus members about his decision at a board meeting Monday night, CNN reported.

“It was a positive meeting. It wasn’t negative,” he told CNN.

CNN reported that Amash “emphasized his decision was voluntary and that he remains on good terms with his colleagues.”
