Amash tweeted on Saturday that the president’s actions to potentially impede special councils Robert Mueller Robert (Bob) Swan MuellerSasse: The United States should pay tribute to Mueller’s election to lead Russia’s probe MER s investigation of Russian election disturbances justifies sanction procedures from the chamber.

He also accused Attorney General William Barr William Pelham BarrTlaib urges Amash to join impeachment resolution 5 things to watch as Trump, Dems collapses over investigations GOP lawmaker: Trump has engaged in several actions that “meets threshold for impeachment” MORE on “deliberate distortion” Mueller’s study findings.

This is not the first time Amash has stood out in the Republican Party by criticizing Trump or other senior officials, something the president emphasized when he hit back on Twitter on Sunday.

Amash, a member of the freedom caucus and the freedom chef, was elected to the House in 2010 as part of the anti-establishment libertarian wave that returned control of the lower chamber to the Republicans.

He quickly made a name for himself by voting no on a GOP-backed state funding measure because it did not do enough to cut spending and quote constitutional issues to abstain from several other votes.

In 2012, he was removed from a committee post at its time-speaker John Boehner John Andrew BoehnerLiz Cheney faces a major decision on her future NBC’s Kelly O & # 39; Donnell tears over the video celebrating 25 years on the Boehner network: “I wouldn’t care about” The primary challenge against Trump if I was Kasich MORE (R-Ohio) to challenge his leadership.

Amash then organized a failed coup a to deposit Boehner John Andrew BoehnerLiz Cheney faces a major decision that her future NBC’s Kelly O & # 39; Donnell tears up over video celebrating 25 years on the Boehner network: “I wouldn’t bother” with the biggest challenge to Trump if I was Kasich MORE .

“We have to stand for something and we must present a clear message to the American people and it has not happened,” Amash said then, calling on the Republican Party’s strategies.

As soon as Trump won the Republican nomination for president, Amash made it clear that he was not supporting the New York Real Estate Mogul, which he said had an “extra constitutional” view of the presidency.

“He seems to believe that the government acts as a company and he is the CEO, and that’s not how it works,” Amash told The Hill in December 2016, after Trump’s surprise choice. “We have separate branches, controls and balances, federalism.”

Constitutionality has been an important part of Amash’s contradictions against Trump since the inauguration of the President.

He has also been critical of the Trump administration’s policies, including his attempt to abolish and replace ObamaCare.

“While I have been to Congress, I cannot revoke a more universal deterrent law than this GOP health bill,” Amash tweeted in March 2017.

The bill was approved by the house and defeated in the Senate, but only after it The original version was drawn after opposition from Amash, among others

Just months in Trump’s term, Amash said the president, who announced himself as an outsider, had merged with Washington marble that he had promised to drain, coined in the hashtag #Trumpstablishment.

After Trump kicked the FBI Director James Comey James Brien ComeyGiuliani returns to Comey: “No one really respects h Im & # 39; Comey: Barr beats his own title & # 39; Trump says the campaign was” merely spied “, it calls treason” MORE Amash joined the Democrats’ voice calling for an independent investigation into Russia’s possible ties to the trump administration.

“My staff and I review legislation to set up an independent commission for Russia. The second paragraph of this letter is bizarre,” Amash tweeted in May 2017, referring to the paragraph in Trump’s letter to Comey who said “I greatly appreciate that you inform me on three separate occasions that I am not under investigation. “[19659006] He was also one of the first Republicans to propose that impeachment was on the table in May 2017 after Comey wrote a note indicating that Trump urged the FBI to release the investigation to former security adviser Michael Flynn.

In June of June, Amash and Trump received a public argument about the President’s attacks from then-Rep. Mark Sanford Marshall (Mark) Clement SanfordTrump holds firm grip on GOP Endorsement Trump is not the easiest decision for any Republican Mark Sanford warns the United States could see “Hitler-like character” in the future MER (RS.C) during a closed door meeting.

Trump claimed that Republicans “applauded and laughed out loud” when he called Sanford a “nasty guy” in a meeting South Carolina Republican, a pronounced critic of the president’s rhetoric, missed due to a flight delay.

Amash questioned Trump’s claim that the comments were well received.

“House Republicans had prime seats for the @ POTUS dazzling exhibition of pain and insecurity. No applause or laughing. People were disgusted,” Amash tweeted.

The Freedom Arena was one of eight Republicans in the House last fall to vote against a funding package that included $ 5.7 billion in funding for Trump’s border, it called a “massive wasted expense bill”.

He was then the only republican who cosponsor a bill to block Trump’s emergency statement to secure funding for a wall after Congress refused to move the issue.

“A national emergency declaration for a non-emergency is invalid. A prerequisite for explaining an emergency is that the situation requires immediate action and Congress is unable to act. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump is trying to bypass our constitutional system,” Amash tweeted President’s Declaration. “

Amash has said he would not rule out challenging Trump in the 2020 election as the Libertarian Party candidate.

Amash’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on this story.
