Justin Amash attacked at town hall for Trump impeachment push

Seth McLaughlin The Washington TimesMay 28, 2019

Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan pushed back Tuesday against a Trump supporter at a town hall who accused him of drinking the “same Kool-Aid as all the Democrats” by calling on the House to launch the impeachment process against President Trump.

The Michigan Republican, who rode into Congress as a favorite of the tea party movement in 2011, has come under fire from Mr. Trump and his allies since he became the first sitting GOP lawmaker to support impeachment proceedings following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

At his first town hall since joining the impeachment calls, Mr. Amash, who represents Michigan’s 3rd Congressional District, received a standing ovation and applauded for being courageous at Grand Rapids Christian High School.
