Career

On May 18, 2019, Justin Amash said he had discovered that President Donald Trump had behaved with impeachable conduct. Amash blamed Attorney General William Barr for deliberately trying to be deceptive towards the public.

After President Trump proclaimed a national crisis in February, Amash took to Twitter to give his thoughts. The Michigan Congressman wrote on his Twitter account, “A national emergency declaration for a non-emergency is void. A prerequisite for declaring an emergency is that the situation requires immediate action and Congress does not have an opportunity to act. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump is attempting to circumvent our constitutional system.”

Amash later tweeted out a string of statements spreading out his case that the president had acted with malicious intent. Amash contended that, while the leader of the United States has the privilege to pronounce a national crisis, he may just do as such in situations where Congress has had no chance to act. Amash focused on that pronouncing a highly sensitive situation ought to be for outrageous cases, similar to assaults on the country.
