Just hours before his first town hall with voters, since he announced that President Donald Trump has committed criminal offenses, the Republican from Michigan released a series of 25 tweets in which he shared his findings from the report of Special Envoy Robert Mueller explained Russia's interference in the 2016 elections.
"In fact, Müller's report describes the contacts between members of Trump's campaign and people in or in connection with the Russian government," Amash wrote on Tuesday.
The 39-year-old is the only sedentary Republican to say so openly Trump was involved in impeachment despite not signing any existing democratic impeachment decisions.
Amash dismissed attorney general William Barr for his treatment of the report, claiming he misrepresented Müller's findings, including in statements before Congress.
"Barr has successfully used his position to sell the President's false narrative to the American people, and that's what happens when those who read the report do not begin to push back their false representations and the truth share, "Amash tweeted.
Amash is known for his independent stance and has a history of splitting conventional GOP positions into controversial issues such as surveillance and foreign policy.
His criticism has made him a target for Trump ̵
1; the president recently said Amash was "a loser for a long time" – and has taken a primary challenge in his Grand Rapids district, which he has been representing since 2011.
