Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) faced his constituents on Tuesday for the first time since announcing his support for impeachment.

Amash was met with a warm reception and a standing ovation from attendees at a town hall meeting in his district, CNN reported.

The congressman stood by his previous statements that President Donald Trump had engaged in conduct that would be worthy of impeachment and even claimed that some of his Republican colleagues agree with his assessment of the Mueller report.

“My colleagues tell me all the time — in fact, you wouldn’t believe how many phone conversations I had or conversations in person with colleagues,” he explained.

“By the way, a lot of them think I’m right about the Mueller report, but they just won’t say it,” he added.

Amash recounted private conversations with colleagues warning him that coming forward in support of impeachment wouldn’t garner him support among Democrats, but the congressman quickly brushed off those concerns.

“It doesn’t matter to me,” he explained. “Because you have to look at what you’re doing first.”

“You have to care about what you’re doing. And if we have a society where all we care about is that the other side is bad and, therefore, we don’t have to do the right thing, that society will break down, and you will have no liberty.”

Amash argued that simply hating the other side and disagreeing with them no matter what is “the surest way to destroy our Constitution.”

“And I refuse to be a part of that,” he added, closing out the town hall meeting. “I will always stand up for liberty — stand up for our Constitution.”
