Amash leaves Republican Party

Share:

Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) on Thursday announced he is leaving the Republican Party, months after igniting a political firestorm after becoming the first member of his party on Capitol Hill to call for an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

Amash will remain in Congress as an independent. “I’ve become disenchanted with party politics and frightened by what I see from it,” Amash wrote in an op-ed for The Washington Post. “Modern politics is trapped in a partisan death spiral, but there is an escape,” he added.

Amash, who represents Michigan’s third Congressional district, last month became the first congressional Republican to conclude that President Donald Trump has engaged in “impeachable conduct.” Trump hit back at Amash on Twitter at the time, calling him a “loser.”

  1. Justin Amash has shown integrity, courage, conviction and honesty – all qualities TOTALLY MISSING from the Republican Party (and most Democrats too). He’s pointed out the deep flaws in partisan politics and is taking a lot of criticism because he dared speak out and challenge the status-quo. A real hero today spoke up.
