William Barr could not believe who just betrayed him
It’s no surprise Democrats want to take down Attorney General William Barr by any means necessary.
But what shocked many Americans is who is helping them.
And William Barr could not believe who just betrayed him.
Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee voted to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt after the Trump administration asserted executive privilege on documents pertaining to how it put together the census.
However, they were joined by never-Trump Republican Justin Amash.
The Hill reports:
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), the only Republican in Congress to come out in favor of starting impeachment proceedings against President Trump, broke with his party again on Wednesday with a committee vote to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt.
Amash joined Democrats to vote in favor of the contempt resolution, which was in relation to subpoenaed documents on the Trump administration’s addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Amash had also sided with Democrats in votes over which amendments to add to the contempt resolution.
The Republican stepped down from the conservative Freedom Caucus this week after going public with his impeachment comments. The group is typically pro-Trump.
Amash is already in massive political trouble after he decided to link arms with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats and call for President Trump’s impeachment.
A recent poll showed him trailing a pro-Trump primary challenger by 16 points after this awful double-cross.
Now that Amash voted to hold Barr in contempt, his transformation into never-Trump Republican is complete.
And the political reality is that Amash will pay for his betrayal with his seat.
