FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD – On Saturday, Representative Justin Amash became the first Republican to call for the impeachment of President Trump. The Congressman noted underlying crimes in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russia. In response, John Delaney released the following statement:
“Congressman Amash is a principled conservative, and I admire the fact that he speaks his beliefs. He is certainly not the only Republican who believes that the President has obstructed justice, undermines the separation of powers, or otherwise engages in highly inappropriate behavior; but he is one of the few who takes a stand. It is time for principled Republicans to similarly take a stand and defend the Constitution, the institutions of government, the rule of law, and the norms of our society.

“If we continue to allow this President to be unchecked and manipulate the truth, we will forever alter our Democracy for the worse.”
