Trump Supporters Confront Justin Amash During Town Hall Over His Support for Trump Impeachment

@SamKWEaster/Twitter

Two of President Donald Trump’s supporters went after Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) for continuing to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment during a town hall on Tuesday.

The representative was confronted by a woman sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat, who asked why he had “become a Democrat.”

“I’ve been your supporter since you started running for Congress, and I can’t tell you how disappointed I am,” said Diane Luke. The crowd booed Luke as she called the Mueller report a “smear attack,” and questioned why the lawmaker was taking the report seriously.

Luke continued to be booed by the crowd, which prompted her to make a comment about the reaction to the hat, saying, “That’s so typical that you boo me because I have a Make America Great Again hat on again.”

Watch the confrontation below:

Amash fired back, saying that he stands by his belief that Trump had obstructed justice.

“It’s just not legally true that you can’t obstruct justice when there’s no underlying crime… The reason someone may not charge an underlying crime is because justice was obstructed. So, for example, you might have a situation where someone obstructs justice and therefore evidence is destroyed or prevented from getting to the prosecutor, so the underlying crime then cannot be charged.”

See his response:

Another of the president’s supporters, who actually campaigned for Amash, also confronted him over his impeachment remarks during the town hall.

“I’ve changed my position on you,” she said. “You’ve spent the least two years failing to do your job, which is to directly represent the popular will of your constituents.”

“That’s not my job,” he argued in return. “My job is to uphold the Constitution.”

“Those are not mutually exclusive,” she shot back.

While Amash was highly critical of Trump, he did admit that impeachment does not mean removal from office, saying that “so many layers that have to be moved through” before that will happen.

As IJR Red reported, Amash has been very outspoken about his opinion of Trump recently, claiming that he had committed impeachable offenses. On Tuesday, Amash also criticized Attorney General William Barr for his summary of the Mueller report.

Amash is one of only two Republicans who have spoken out against Trump concerning the Mueller report. However, it is uncertain if Congress will take any action towards impeachment.

AMASH is the son, grandson, and on down the line to a “Palestinian” family. How much of his teachings, which typically come from grandparents and parents remain with him? Therefore, when Rashida TLAIB wanted to partner up with him (she calls herself palestinian), the radar went up. The main reason i n my opinion is that they hate President Trump because HE LOVES ISRAEL. THEN…there’s that money from China flowing in to him, that he would not otherwise even have access to had he not been able to parlay into big bucks had he not been in the House of… Read more »

Sorry but this fellow seems to think he doesn’t represent the people who voted for him, that is a big problem it also makes him a fraud just like hillary and the opposite of the President who i might add is doing what we the people voted him in to do, this guy obviously has a hidden agenda by his own words by not representing the voters, so he represents himself with the cloak of the constitution as his shield hopefully the voters fix this next election so they have someone who “WILL REPRESENT THE PEOPLE”. not his own agenda,… Read more »

It makes me angry that ALL Republicans in Congress do not stand behind our President especially when the democrats are working with George Soros who is the one leading this huge HOAX to destroy him. He’s paying everyone to make up lies, etc. George Soros has been kicked out of many countries, 1 of them being Spain. And now he’s here, causing horrendous trouble and needs to be dealt with NOW. TREASON is the word. Our President has done so much good for our country. And I am so disappointed in Rep. Senators/House of Rep. who turned against the Pres.… Read more »

That the woman called him a Democrat is laughable. You can disagree with the President and still be a Republican.

I disagree and often disgusted with some elected Democrats and it still doesn’t make me a Republican.
