Rep. Amash unleashes more criticism of AG Barr ahead of town hall meeting

Rep. Justin Amash in Belding, 7/31/17

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – U.S. Representative Justin Amash (R-Grand Rapids) unleashed another series of tweets Tuesday afternoon about U.S. Attorney General William Barr, President Trump and the Robert Mueller investigation, ahead of a town hall meeting with constituents.

Amash is holding a town hall Tuesday night at Grand Rapids Christian High School’s DeVos Center for Arts & Worship at 5:30 p.m. It is his first meeting since tweeting that he believes that President Trump committed “impeachable offenses” and that Barr is misrepresenting and “helped further the president’s false narrative” about the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections.

In Tuesday’s approximately two dozen tweets, Amash goes after Barr, who Trump appointed Attorney General after Jeff Session’s removal. He says that Barr picks out parts of Mueller’s report to  support Trump’s “no collusion” claim, while ignoring other parts where he says Mueller points out instances of obstruction by the president.

Since making his stance, two candidates have entered the primary race against Amash in 2020. Amash has also lost the financial support of the DeVos family for his campaign.

Tuesday’s town hall is expected to run until 6:30 p.m. We’ll have live updates throughout the event on FOX 17 News and online.

    AMASH IS NOTHING BUT A MUSLIM LOVING DUMBRAT WHO WILL NOT BE IN OFFICE LONG HIS THOUGHTS ARE AS WORTHLESS AS HE IS

    Did you ever wonder if the Democrats ever just ran a stooge as a Fauxpublican just to get another name on the ballot and a shot a holding office somewhere?
    Well…Here is your obnoxious proof.

    I bet he runs for President on the Libertarian Party. That would divide the Republicans just like Ross Perot did to George Bush causing Bush to loose the election. Dems win.

    I think I’m more inclined to believe Mueller’s assessment that Barr did NOT misrepresent the report. Justin better polish up his resume. He’s alienated his base and the liberal media, now humping his leg, will turn on him like a pack of wolves when it gets near election time.

    I think these politicians need to be looked into by we the people and not listen to what fake news say about them. I do believe he either lied about his agenda or he is another compromised politician

    Amash is going to look pretty stupid when the IG starts handing out indictments to many of the “investigators”.
