Rep. Justin Amash, the Michigan representative who left the Republican Party in July, is vowing to join Democrats in a vote to impeach President Donald Trump, The Hill is reporting.

“Yes. Assuming the articles are drafted properly, yeah, I think there's impeachable conduct that could be included in articles that I would support,”  Amash, who now is an independent, told The Hill.

He said he now backs the decision by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to start a formal impeachment inquiry.

“I think it's positive that Speaker Pelosi is acting with more force in this case than she did with the Mueller report,” he said.  “When the Mueller report came out, presumably she read it, and she must have seen how bad it was. But then she acted like they still need to gather a lot of evidence.

“And I think that sent the wrong message to the public, most of whom did not read the report. If you think there's something wrong, you have to come out aggressively and say it. And it seems like she's at least taking a step in that direction.”

Amash said he is still giving some thought to running for president.

 I haven’t ruled it out,” he said. “I don't rule things out that are positive opportunities.”
