    ‘"Under our Constitution, the president 'shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors,'" Amash wrote Saturday. "While 'high Crimes and Misdemeanors' is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates the public trust."

    […]

    Amash wrote that impeachment does not require "probable cause" has been committed, but rather "simply requires a finding that an official has engaged in careless, abusive, corrupt or otherwise dishonorable conduct."’

    Justin Amash, Michigan congressman, becomes first GOP lawmaker to call for impeachment

    Correct.

    Indeed, ‘misdemeanors’ refers to bad acts or bad conduct on the part of a president; a president can be removed from office via the impeachment process absent alleged criminal wrongdoing.

    Impeachment is a political – not legal – process.

    The findings of the Mueller investigation, along with Trump’s conduct before and during the investigation, clearly document careless, abusive, and dishonorable conduct on the part of Trump – such as his unwarranted attacks on the judiciary.

    That’s fine. Mr. Amash is guilty of Treason against the POTUS, the Republican Party and Conservative Ideology so far as I’m concerned.

    The penalty for such acts should be removal from office... and more.

    And so with such overwhelming evidence, we wait beady-eyed with bated breath for the House Democrats to perform their sworn duty. :auiqs.jpg:

    Another "WhoDat?" tries to use President Trump to elevate their political status. These people are truly pathetic and not working for the best interests of the country.

    AMASH IS THE LIBERTARIANS’ VERSION OF JOHN MCCAIN:

    He’s always ready to stand selflessly for "principle", so long as it gets him good press.
