Justin Amash may be only one Republican but....

... his argument for impeaching Trump is worth a million Republicans. We should not de-value this very important ally.

How many people will hear?

1. None who haven't heard already.

It's nice to have an ally, but seriously, he's been a principled critic all along, and the only one not to quit or lose an election. Everyone else put re-election over country.

2. He is running for reelection in Michigan, so is this a campaign

issue and strategy or is he really sincere?

3. I wouldn't call him an ally

but he is a unicorn...a Republican with at least a small amount of ethics and backbone.

He is the enemy of my enemy, not necessarily our friend, but temporarily on the same side of this one issue.

6. They don't have to get into an impeachment process...

All they need to do is vote to have an impeachment inquiry, it that will help them get documents and the witnesses they need to do their job.

All the while they should be attacking the Republicans for not defending Congress's right to subpoena witnesses and the right to oversee the Executive Branch. If they cannot do that simple job, then what good are they?

11. Yep. Just get the inquiry going

and hopefully, the documentation will follow.

And there's plenty outside of Mueller to investigate!

8. He'd better be taking his case to other offices and

trying to lure GOP votes...
