Justin Amash Tells Congress: 'The Ball Is in Our Court' on Impeachment

Town Hall Crowd Cheers Amash Discussing Trump Impeachment Push

Trump supporter confronts Justin Amash at town hall for endorsing impeachment, and it gets very heated

A Trump supporter accused Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash of "drinking the Democrats' Kool-Aid" during the congressman's Tuesday evening town hall.

"I think it's really important that we do our job as Congress, that we would not allow misconduct to go undeterred, that we not just say, someone can violate the public trust and that there are no consequences to it", he said.

Rep. Amash recently contended that the president obstructed justice and his actions were "inherently corrupt", despite the Mueller's reports conclusion that Trump did not collude with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election and that Attorney General William Barr found insufficient evidence to warrant an obstruction of justice charge.

Trump hasn't taken that so well, calling Amash a "loser" and "total lightweight" last week.

"In truth, Mueller's report describes concerning contacts between members of Trump's campaign and people in or connected to the Russian government", he tweeted.

"This is what Mueller and the Democrats have all tried to, and the deep state, the bureaucrats, I don't know if you've ever dealt with a bureaucrat, but it's just mind-boggling that we have to deal with them", the woman said, "I have a lot of experience". And that's why I stated what I stated. "We can't let conduct like that go unchecked".

"Congress has a duty to keep the president in check, and it's a hard process..." "I am a principled constitutional conservative who has stayed consistent regardless of whether we have President Obama in office, or President Trump".

"First I have one of the most constitutionally conservative and fiscally conservative voting records in the whole Congress", Amash answered to great applause.

NBC News correspondent Leigh Anne Caldwell noted that Amash received a standing ovation when he walked in.
