Rep. 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 Chairman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement about the situation, condemning Amash's calls that "parrot the Democrats' talking points on Russia."

It’s sad to see Congressman Amash parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia. The only people still fixated on the Russia collusion hoax are political foes of President Trump hoping to defeat him in 2020 by any desperate means possible. Voters in Amash’s district strongly support this President, and would rather their Congressman work to support the President's policies that have brought jobs, increased wages and made life better for Americans.
