President Trump wasted no time firing back at libertarian-leaning Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) for joining the left's calls for impeachment. (The Hill)
 

"Never a fan of @justinamash, a total lightweight who opposes me and some of our great Republican ideas and policies just for the sake of getting his name out there through controversy," Trump said on Twitter.

 

Trump added that Amash would see that he was misguided if he "actually read the biased" report put together by special counsel Robert Mueller. 

"He would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION," Trump said. "Anyway, how do you Obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!"

Amash, a member of the House Freedom Caucus, on Saturday became the first GOP lawmaker to say that the president's conduct was "impeachable."


Amash also criticized William Barr, claiming the attorney general willfully misled Congress on Mueller's findings.
