Rep. Justin Amash Is The Number One Bona-fide Trump Hating Republican. by Roger Kimball

Editorial Note: Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) refused to vote for Trump in 2016 and may challenge the President as the Libertarian Party nominee in 2020. After the GOP nominated Romney in 2012, Amash said his only endorsement was for Ron Paul. 
Instapundit says "Amash is always ready to stand selflessly for principle, so long as it gets him good press."

The chief conclusion of the Mueller report — no collusion — was a watershed. The American people had been waiting around for nearly three years.
Every night, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, George Stephanopoulos, and their confrères bleated on about how the latest bombshell/tipping point/beginning of the end was just about to unseat the President.
RNC’s Ronna McDaniel says Amash has made a career out of ‘parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia.’ His latest tweets are just the latest installment in that anti-Trump comic book.
Maybe the soon-to-be former congressman can take John Brennan’s place mouthing anti-Trump slogans on the nightly news: Brennan will be occupied elsewhere, possibly clad in orange (it would be orange).
Anyway, the bottom line is that Justin Amash will soon be pursuing a new line of work, pundit, probably, maybe the Michigan correspondent for The Bulwark. Time will tell.
