He became the first sitting Republican in Congress to say President Trump committed “impeachable offenses.”

He will now face a primary challenge from a pro-Trump Republican in 2020.

On Monday night, Rep. Justin Amash (MI) stepped down from the Freedom Caucus.

Michigan Repubican Rep. Justin Amash announced Monday evening he was leaving the influential conservative House Freedom Caucus, just weeks after he attracted the ire of his colleagues by arguing in Twitter posts that President Trump had committed impeachable offenses, Fox News has learned.

Amash, speaking at a Freedom Caucus board meeting, insisted his departure was voluntary. Amash said he did not want to continue to be a “further distraction” for the caucus, which is chaired by North Carolina GOP Rep. Mark Meadows.

Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the Freedom Caucus, told Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle” Monday evening that Meadows and Amash mutually came to the decision after several conversations.

WATCH:

Justin has set his sights on AG Bill Barr.

LOOK:

Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented key aspects of Mueller’s report and decisions in the investigation, which has helped further the president’s false narrative about the investigation.

Mueller’s report says he chose not to decide whether Trump broke the law because there’s an official DoJ opinion that indicting a sitting president is unconstitutional, and because of concerns about impacting the president’s ability to govern and pre-empting possible impeachment.

But, in fact, Mueller finds considerable evidence that several of Trump’s actions detailed in the report meet the elements of obstruction, and Mueller’s constitutional and prudential issues with indicting a sitting president would preclude indictment regardless of what he found.

Barr quotes Mueller saying the evidence didn’t establish that Trump was personally involved in crimes related to Russian election interference, and Barr then claims that Mueller found that fact relevant to whether the president had the intent to obstruct justice.

As a result of Barr’s March 24 letter, the public and Congress were misled. Mueller himself notes this in a March 27 letter to Barr, saying that Barr’s letter “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this Office’s work and conclusions.”

To “alleviate the misunderstandings that have arisen,” Mueller urged the release of the report’s introductions and executive summaries, which he had told Barr “accurately summarize [Mueller’s] Office’s work and conclusions.”

Barr was asked about reports “that members of [Mueller’s] team are frustrated…with the limited information included in your March 24th letter, that it does not adequately or accurately necessarily portray the report’s findings. Do you know what they’re referencing with that?”

In subsequent statements and testimony, Barr used further misrepresentations to help build the president’s false narrative that the investigation was unjustified.

But whether there’s enough evidence for a conviction of a specific crime which Mueller thought was appropriate to charge is a different and much higher standard than whether the people whom Mueller investigated had done anything worthy of investigation.

For instance, Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner took a meeting with a Russian lawyer whom Trump Jr. had been told worked for the Russian government and would provide documents to “incriminate Hillary,” as part of the Russian government’s “support for Mr. Trump.”

Barr says the White House “fully cooperated” with the investigation and that Mueller “never sought” or “pushed” to get more from the president, but the report says Mueller unsuccessfully sought an interview with the president for over a year.

The president instead gave written answers to questions submitted by the special counsel. Those answers are often incomplete or unresponsive. Mueller found them “inadequate” and again sought to interview the president.

Barr has so far successfully used his position to sell the president’s false narrative to the American people. This will continue if those who have read the report do not start pushing back on his misrepresentations and share the truth.

Palestinian Terrorists Blow Up Israeli Teen, & Rashida Tlaib Has the Nerve to Blame ISRAEL

She’s just unreal.

Can the Democrats of Michigan truly feel good about themselves knowing they put an openly anti-Semitic woman in Congress? Maddening. Check out Muslim Democrat Rashida Tlaib’s tweet on Israel upon learning Palestinian terrorists literally blew up an Israeli teenager… From Red State: You may have heard the recent news of a 17 year old Israeli girl being killed by a bomb that was planted by Palestinian terrorists. Her father and brother were also seriously wounded in the attack. This all occurred while they simply out enjoying a family swim. Worse, the bomb had apparently been planted months ago and the terrorists were waiting on the “right” victim to denote it on. That turned out to be a teenage girl because these are the kinds of monsters the Israelis have to deal with on a daily basis. Enter Tlaib: This is absolutely tragic & horrible. My heart goes out to Rina’s family. More than ever we need to support nonviolent approaches to ending the Israeli occupation and guaranteeing equal rights for all. Extremism that puts innocent lives at risk moves us no closer to peace. https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1165067456676847616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1165067456676847616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbonchie%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Fpalestinian-terrorists-kill-israeli-child-rep.-rashida-tlaib-blames-jews The first thing to note is that she’s retweeting a rabidly anti-Semitic organization that continually blames Israel for all the world’s ills while never standing against Palestinian terrorism. That would be bad enough, but Tlaib goes further. She gives her own awful commentary blaming the “occupation” and the idea that if only Israel gave into the Palestinians, they’d all live in peace and harmony. You see, it’s not the fault of the Palestinian terrorists who killed this girl. It’s Israel’s fault for somehow provoking them by not letting their country be overrun with an Islamism that wants to destroy it. Reactions: This is vile! Have you no shame? How dare you blame the murder of…

AOC Comes Unglued, Says the Electoral College Is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans

Come on, man!

Democrats hate the Electoral College because they don’t understand what it’s about. Preventing tyranny of the majority is crucial. New Yorkers and Californians and people from a few other large states shouldn’t get all the say, leaving residents of smaller states feeling as though their voice literally does not matter. Had Hillary Clinton acquired the necessary electorals to win in 2016, Dems would be fighting to see the system remain in place. And yet, here we are. Enter embattled rookie lawmaker, Alexandria O’Commie-Cortez… Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans. I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college. So let’s talk about it. 1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote. They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164987742842830848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1164987742842830848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Focasio-cortez-electoral-college-is-affirmative-action-for-rural-americans%2F 2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS. a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164988657209507845 3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural. But very importantly… https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164989849226506240 4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do…
