Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Reason.com: “Donald Trump Responds To Justin Amash: 'Never a Fan…Total Lightweight…Loser'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Yesterday, the most-libertarian member of Congress, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said that he believes President Donald Trump had "engaged in impeachable conduct." A lawyer by training, Amash tweeted that he'd read the Mueller report carefully and conferred with others before concluding that

Mueller's report identifies multiple examples of conduct satisfying all the elements of obstruction of justice, and undoubtedly any person who is not the president of the United States would be indicted based on such evidence.

Amash's conclusion aligns with that of another high-profile libertarian presence with a background in law: Judge Andrew Napolitano, the senior legal analyst for Fox News, who told Reason a couple of weeks ago that the Mueller report describes behavior that clearly meets the threshold for charges of obstruction.

In response to Napolitano's claims, first aired on Fox, the president shrugged them off and claimed that the former judge had asked to be placed on the Supreme Court and sought a pardon for a mutual friend. Responding to Amash, Trump lashed out via Twitter, calling the congressman "a total lightweight," a glory hound trying to "get his name out there through controversy," and a "loser who sadly plays right into our opponents [sic] hands." Oddly, the president also refers to himself in the third person, taking a swipe at the Mueller report as being written by "Angry Dems who hated Trump."

….he would see that it was nevertheless strong on NO COLLUSION and, ultimately, NO OBSTRUCTION…Anyway, how do you Obstruct when there is no crime and, in fact, the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who sadly plays right into our opponents hands!
