Trump facing growing mutiny in his own Republican party

By

On top of trying to run this country and help us rebound from eight years of Barack Obama, President Trump is having to battle his own Republican Party.

And that fight is getting ever more intense.

Just this week, a Republican representative openly called for Trump to be impeached.

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) has been an outspoken critic of President Trump from day one.

He was also one of just two Republican representatives to jump on the Democrat bandwagon falsely accusing Trump of colluding with Russia to win the election.

Now, Amash is using the firing of FBI Director James Comey to call for Trump’s head.

Earlier this week, Comey wrote in a memo that he had been pressured by Trump to drop an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Even though at least one top constitutional scholar has said this is by no means grounds for impeachment (assuming Comey is even telling the truth), Amash went on record saying the opposite.

Asked by a reporter for The Hill if Comey’s memo was enough to remove Trump from office, Amash answered “Yes”.

Amash went on to explain that he trusts Comey far more than he trusts Trump.

President Trump is under direct assault from within his own party.

Do you stand with President Trump?
