Amash 's comments in which it was recommended to Congress to prosecute the president for charges of obstructing justice were the first case of a Republican sitting in Congress calling for Trump' s removal.
"In contrast to Barr's portrayal, Mueller's report reveals that President Trump has engaged in specific actions and behavior that meets the threshold of impeachment," Amash said in a series of posts on Twitter.
"@ justinamash come to me in Longworth in 1628. I have an impeachment investigation resolution that you are going to want to sponsor," tweeted Tlaib.
Amash said Saturday that he had formulated his findings "only after having carefully read and fully read Mueller's written report, read or viewed the relevant statements and testimonies, and discussed them with my staff, who carefully examined the documents. and m provided a more in-depth analysis. "
He added that Barr had repeatedly misled the public about the Mueller report, a charge repeatedly made by Democrats and others that the Attorney General challenged.
"Barr's false statements are important but often subtle – they often take the form of tricky maneuvers or logical errors, which he hopes no one will notice," Mr. Amash said.
Amash said that "unlike Barr's representation," Trump's actions "reach the threshold of impeachment" and that anyone without the unique legal protections of the presidency would be charged with an indictment.
He argued that the role of the Congress was to advance the impeachment process and accused people on both sides of the aisle of political motives, claiming that they had changed "opinion", depending on whether they discussed (former president), Bill Clinton or Donald Trump. "
"Our system of checks and balances is based on the fact that each branch is jealously guarding its powers and fulfilling its obligations under our Constitution," Amash tweeted. "When loyalty to a political party or individual overrides the Constitution, the rule of law – the foundation of freedom – erodes."
