Donald Trump’s enemies in the Republican Party are pulling out all the stops to destroy the President.
One even joined with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in supporting impeachment.
But this Never-Trump traitor watched his career end when he saw the jaw dropping results of one brand new poll.
Michigan Republican Congressman Justin Amash rocked Washington by becoming the first Republican to back impeachment.
Amash justified his outrageous act of treachery by falsely claiming the Mueller report proved Donald Trump obstructed justice and that Attorney General William Barr misled the American people when he reported Mueller’s findings.
Republicans across the country – and especially in Amash’s district – erupted in outrage over Amash throwing his principles out the window to preen for the media and virtue signal to the left.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel – who is also a Michigan native – blasted Amash in a statement.
“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,” McDaniel declared.
“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.”
That was not all, as the fallout continued to spread.
The DeVos family – of which Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is a member – announced they were cutting ties with Amash.
DeVos’ family members contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Amash’s campaigns over the years.
The DeVos’ renouncing Amash put blood in the water—and it was only a matter of time before Amash attracted a pro-Trump primary challenger.
State Senator Jim Lower – who supports the President – announced he would challenge Amash in next year’s GOP primary.
And in the first public poll since Amash declared his support for the coup against President Trump and Lower’s announcement found Lower trouncing Amash by 16 points.
Trump’s aides strategized about whether the President should endorse Lower and campaign against Amash in order to send a message.
Lower obviously welcomed the President’s support.
“If they were to get involved early I think it would help make sure that it was just me versus Amash in the August primary — and if that’s the case we’re definitely going to win,” Lower told Politico.
“Obviously Trump is a huge component of our campaign, so it will probably go without saying that we’d love to have his endorsement,” he added.
But Trump may not jump into the race.
The Libertarian Party is courting Amash to be their nominee in 2020, and considering Michigan’s pivotal role in Trump’s Electoral College majority, Amash could play the role of spoiler.
Trump may judge it’s better to sit back and watch Amash lose rather than antagonize him in a primary campaign and spur him to jump into the Presidential race.
