GOP Rep. Amash becomes first Republican to call for Trump's impeachment

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)Michigan GOP Rep. Justin Amash said Saturday he had concluded President Donald Trump committed "impeachable conduct" and accused Attorney General William Barr of intentionally misleading the public.

Amash's comments recommending Congress pursue obstruction of justice charges against Trump were the first instance of a sitting Republican in Congress calling for Trump's impeachment.

Amash said on Saturday that he made his conclusions "only after having read Mueller's redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis."

"Our system of checks and balances relies on each branch's jealously guarding its powers and upholding its duties under our Constitution," Amash tweeted. "When loyalty to a political party or to an individual trumps loyalty to the Constitution, the Rule of Law -- the foundation of liberty -- crumbles."

In other news, a cold snap has been reported in Hell and they are expecting a couple inches of snow.

Less flippantly, one can hope that now that Amash has said it, a few other GOP Congresscritters will feel a strange sensation in their backs and rediscover their spines. Probably not terribly likely, unfortunately.

Don't really get the hate for Apple either, personally.

I had an iPhone and felt that it was a bit too restrictive, so when it came time to get a new phone I switched to Android. I still have my old iPad since I have a bunch of ebooks on it, but I mainly use my Android tablet now.

Apple's products are well-made and easy to use, which is great for people like my mother-in-law who aren't very tech-savvy.

With so many options out there, if one doesn't like Apple's products or the way they do business, the solution is simple: buy a different device. It's not as if they're the only smartphone game in town.
