WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US representative Justin Amash, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, became the first Republican legislature on Saturday to say the president has engaged in unreliable behavior.

Special Advisor Robert Mueller's report on the study of Russian interference in the 2016 election reveals that Trump "deals with specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meets the threshold", Amash, who has signaled that he would consider running as a libertarian courage Trump in the 2020 election, wrote on Twitter.
Mueller's report "identifies several examples of behavior that meet all elements of justice obstruction, and no doubt any person who is not the US president will be accused of such evidence," Amash wrote.
Trump has said Mueller's report concluded there was no obstacle to justice. Mueller's report gave no formal conclusions on this matter and left the case up to Congress.
Amash also wrote that "it is clear" that lawyer William Barr intended to mislead the public about Mueller's report in its conclusions and congressional evidence of it.
In his letter to Congress, Barr said he and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, had determined that there was insufficient evidence to establish that the president was committing a criminal obstacle to justice or acting illegally to prevent the investigation.
Amash's comments repeated the conclusions of many Democrats. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on May 8 that Trump moved closer to persecution with his efforts to counter the congressional summons and prevent lawmakers' efforts to monitor his administration.
Democrats are still divided on prosecution, and Pelosi also said that prosecution procedures would be "divisive" to the country.
The White House and the Justice Department did not respond promptly to requests for comments on Amash's tweets.
Ronna McDaniel, President of the Republican National Committee, wrote on Twitter "It is sad to see … Amash parroting the Democrats" talking about Russia. "She said that the only people still concerned about the Russia study are Trump's political enemies" Hope to defeat him by 2020 with all desperate means. "
Amash, representing Michigan's 3rd Congress District , wrote that he had read Mueller's fully-fledged report but had congressional members.
In February, Amash became the only Republican to contribute to a decision of the US House of Representatives to reject the Trump emergency declared at The border between the United States and Mexico, to build a wall there in a crime against the president.  Impeachment should only be carried out under exceptional circumstances, wrote Amash on Saturday, but the risk of an extreme party creation time is not that Congress will use it as a means too often, but rather that Congress will use it so infrequently that it cannot discourage abuse.
