President Donald Trump’s Republican allies are working to stop Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., from becoming the first of many in the GOP to publicly accuse Trump of having “engaged in impeachable conduct,” CNN reports.

Amash tweeted on Saturday that Trump has committed “impeachable conduct,” and that Attorney General William Barr had intentionally misled the public, the first Republican member of Congress to do so.

"My own view is that Justin Amash has reached a different conclusion than I have. I respect him, I think it's a courageous statement," Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told CNN's Jake Tapper.

"The American people just aren't there," he added. "The Senate is certainly not there, either."

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel wrote on Twitter that Amash was "parroting the Democrats' talking points on Russia,” according to CNN, and said that "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.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wondered whether Amash is “even in our Republican conference,” claiming that “he votes more with [Democratic House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi than he ever votes with me,” even though the American Conservative Union has Amash voting with their group’s positions 88% of the time.
