Sarah Sanders Wrecks Lone Wolf Amash for Impeachment Calls: Not ‘Worth the Time of the White House’

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is crushing Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) for his repetitive calls for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Amash became the lone wolf within his party to put his foot down that the president engaged in impeachable conduct following special counsel Robert Mueller’s report — which he has since doubled down on — while also going after Attorney General William Barr in a tweetstorm for allegedly “deliberately” misrepresenting special counsel’s report.

When confronted by reporters outside the White House on Wednesday about Amash’s calls for Trump to be impeached, Sanders said she doesn’t “think Congressman Amash is worth the time of the White House.”

The press secretary also made it clear that it was up to the president to “make that determination” on whether he will support Amash’s primary opponent.

The Republican lawmaker recently said that running against Trump as the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee in 2020 is not “off the table.”

Watch the video below:

Amash has since drawn criticism from his Republican colleagues, as well as the president, over his impeachment remarks.

Trump previously slammed Amash on May 19, accusing the congressman of being “a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy.”

Others joined in with their disapproval. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on May 21 that Amash’s comments have “zero” importance.

“He made his decision. He’s going to have to live with it,” Graham added. “But I don’t think it’s going to be a trendsetting move by any means.”

However, Amash claimed during Tuesday’s town hall in Michigan that “a lot” of his Republican colleagues “think I’m right about the Mueller report, but they just won’t say it,” as IJR Blue reported.

As for Mueller’s probe, the special counsel appeared before reporters on Wednesday and explained that charging Trump was “not an option we could consider.” He also announced that he is “formally closing the special counsel’s office” and is “resigning from the Department of Justice to return to private life.”

Amash was once again the lone Republican in response to Mueller’s public speech, proclaiming to Congress that “the ball is in our court.” Meanwhile, several other GOP members of Congress deemed it as case closed.

  1. I THINK AMASH, THE TURNCOAT, WANTS TO GET FIRED……..AMASH IS A TYPICAL DEMOCRAT!!!!

  2. Amash wants to be recognized…but who can stand his ugly face? He needs to get a life….

    1. MAYBE AMASH IS A MUSLIM THAT IS A ‘PLANT’!!!!

  3. Amash should register as a Demoncrat, he doesn’t belong on the Republican side, a regular Benedict Arnold!!!!!!!!

  4. Oh Sarah Sanders one tough cookie, love her.

  5. All we hear is impeachment from the haters. What we don’t hear is specifically based on what? Hate for a successful president because “we” hate him is not an impeachable offense.

    1. You are correct, “we hate him is not an impeachable offense” or R’s would have introduced it against Obama. No articles have been announced as there is NO impeachment inquiry at the present time. After an inquiry, I would guess the obvious articles would be very similar to Nixon’s articles. If you were not old enough to remember them, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE: 10 offenses are listed in the Mueller Report, you can not miss them. ABUSE OF POWER, CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS, AND possibly FAILURE TO PAY TAXES. Nixon and Clinton were much more successful POTUS than Trump. In 1974 and 1998, Congress did not consider the POTUS ABOVE the law. Both Nixon & Clinton had higher approval ratings than Trump at the time of their impeachment (indictments).

      1. When was Nixon IMPEACHED???? Tell us just WHEN was Nixon impeached? The all-knowing one has just out and out lied or is mistaken about her facts, but since she is NEVER mistaken about facts, looks like she just lied to all of here. Give us the date Nixon was impeached, philly.

  6. Lone wolf Amash has rabies and should be treated as such. He should definitely switch parties.

    1. In 2004, 33% registered voters identified as Republican. Today that is down to 24%. You might want to reconsider your plan to kick everyone out of the party that does not agree to do Trump’s bidding.

  7. Another RINO (a la J. McCain and Paul Ryan) – and DEFINITELY NOT a libertarian! Being from Michigan, however, he can now proudly stand with Omar and Tlaib… holding hands, singing Kumbaya, and doing NOTHING in “the peoples’ House JUST LIKE THEM!

  8. This stance is the only way a dim bulb like Amash can get any attention. “The ball is in our court” he says as though he’s prophesying and galvanizing a strike while the stars are aligned. Then he looks around and realizes no one is following him, and he feels like a pariah, ‘cept when the applause of Wapo, USA Today and the LA Times causes him to blush. It appears all his conservatism and libertarianism is “inferred”. I’d say he’s a liberal and masquerading as a Midwesterner with actual American values. In any event, like Sarah says, he’s not worth anyone’s time. This guy is like the bad seed of a seedless Bill Weld.

  9. I think if Mueller told Barr that the fact that you couldn’t criminally charge a sitting President was not the reason he didn’t decide not to charge him then Barr should make that public and destroy Muellers credibility!
