Republican lawmaker joins the Democrats to call for President Trump’s impeachment

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

Rep. Justin Amash said ,Wednesday, that if the allegations against President Trump were true, they constituted grounds for impeachment. He has joined a growing number of members of Congress  escalating calls for Comey to appear before them. President Trump travelled to New London, Conn., where he is delivering the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy.

The Michigan Republican who has a history of openly criticising President Trump and bucking his party, told reporters on Wednesday that if the allegations contained in the so-called Comey memo were true, they constituted grounds for impeachment. He is the first Republican to join a fast increasing list of Democrats suggesting Trump may be guilty of an impeachable offence, a determination that would be ultimately made by the House.
House Democrats accused Republicans of not conducting any relevant oversight of the administration, despite the back-to-back revelations linked to the President. “House Republicans have shown repeatedly that they refuse to conduct credible, robust oversight over this president,” said Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee. “They do as little as humanly possible just to claim that they’re doing something.”

Since Tuesday, President Trump focused on the question of whether the memo was authentically written by James Comey at the time, according to people briefed on the discussions.
