Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) on Saturday took to Twitter to explain why he believes impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump should occur. According to Amash, Attorney General William Barr "deliberately misrepresented [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller's report" into the alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to address Amash's calls for impeachment, saying Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report cleared him of collusion and obstruction of justice. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said Amash is "parroting the Democrats' talking points on Russia."

Conservatives weren't happy with Amash and made their feelings about his claims known. Despite the backlash, Amash took to Twitter on Monday to, once again, give his take on the Mueller report:

We get it, Justin. You think President Trump committed crimes. You think Trump should be charged for it. The majority of people on your side of the aisle disagree with you. Just how long are you going to keep pushing this narrative? Right now you're sounding about as obsessed as the Democrats. In fact, your talking points mirror the Democrats' so much that Rep. Rashida Tlaib wants you to cosponsor her impeachment proceedings.

At what point do we, as a country, move on? How many people need to "investigate" the investigators and the investigations before every politician is satisfied? Because this is getting beyond ridiculous.
