You made this up and have no proof. His fathers business, who he consulted for, is well known for importing hand tools. It's name was Amash Imports before it was changed to Michigan Industrial Tools Inc

Good to see someone with a backbone. The only other Republicans to recognize the obvious truth publicly are those that aren't facing re-election.

One question for Amash: using his logic and definitions - why isn't Hillary Clinton sitting behind bars right now?

Notice how it is no longer collusion but obstruction...

The first big crack in Trump's armor, with plenty more coming shortly. McGahn testifies this week, Mueller will probably be the second week of June. Amash is getting ready to have a lot of company.

He's in a district where his position on impeachment will probably strengthen him.

I was thinking the very same thing.

The shape and exact area the district covers has changed over the years, but has generally covered the Grand Rapids are for quite some time. The GOP has held the seat and the other versions of the seat going back to the mid 70's when it was known as the 5th district.

Trump won the district by 9 points, Romney by 7. Amash has won all five of his elections in the 10-20 point or so range.

It is a fairly Republican seat and one in most cases would be safe, but is a seat in which if the wrong candidate comes out in a Primary could be vulnerable to a flip (think Akin, Murdoch, Angle)

Amash made this state and country proud yesterday. He selected country over party. Everything in his tweet was correct. He is on board with 900 other prosecutors. He won't side with a pathological liar and his corrupt AG. Let's hope the Kremlin president is prosecuted when he leaves office.

More russian nonsense.
You want to go after Trump? Go after him for acting as an agent of Israel or the Saudis.
However since much of congress is also on their payroll its unlikely for that to ever happen.
