Amash in publicity seeking
Amash apparently has little regard for the image of the FBI
“Asked by another reporter whether he trusted Comey’s word or Trump’s, Amash said: “I think it’s pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey.”
I WOULD ASK CONGRESSMAN AMASH, HOPEFULLY ON HIS WAY OUT THE DOOR, EXACTLY WHAT IT IS ABOUT JAMES COMEY THAT INSPIRES SUCH “CONFIDENCE”.
After all, Mr. Comey is a big expert on “intent”. Can he say unequivocally that it was President trump’s “intent” to force him to halt the investigation of Michael Flynn?
Based on Comey’s alleged meticulous notes, would any “reasonable prosecutor” bring such a case?
I fervently hope that Justin Amash will have to find work somewhere else after 2018, regardless of this event’s outcome.
Maybe he and John McCain, between them, would have the expertise to run a taco stand…well, maybe not!
What a turkey! DLH
Republicans are beginning to talk of the possibility that President Trump could face impeachment after reports that he pressed ousted FBI Director James Comey to end an investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
While Republicans are choosing their words carefully, the fact that impeachment is even being mentioned is notable in Washington’s polarized political environment.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Wednesday said if the reports about Trump’s pressure on Comey are true, it would merit impeachment.
Amash spoke a day after The New York Times on Tuesday reported that Trump tried to pressure Comey to stop investigating Flynn.
According to a memo written by Comey after the February meeting, the president told Comey “I hope you can let this go.”
Asked by The Hill if the details in the memo would merit impeachment if they’re true, Amash replied: “Yes.”
“But everybody gets a fair trial in this country,” Amash added as he left a House GOP conference meeting.
