Rashida Tlaib Is Recruiting Justin Amash To Cosponsor Bipartisan Impeachment Resolution

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib was quick to capitalize on concerns voiced by Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, claiming that they should cosponsor an impeachment resolution.

“@justinamash come find me in 1628 Longworth. I’ve got an impeachment investigation resolution you’re going to want to cosponsor,” Tlaib tweeted. (GOP House Lawmaker: ‘Trump Has Engaged In impeachable Conduct’)

Tlaib was responding to a lengthy thread from Amash in which he laid out a case for the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Amash argued that the president had engaged in “impeachable conduct” but also noted that impeachment was a “special kind of indictment” that didn’t actually require a crime to have been committed.

Amash’s office did not respond to requests for comment. The Michigan lawmaker has given no indication whether he would draft or cosponsor any impeachment resolution.
