House GOP President Kevin McCarthy disputes the five-year-old Congressman Justin Amash's call for President Trump's assault.
Joining a growing choir of Republicans, McCarthy said Tuesday that Rep Amash, D-Mich., Was out of step with others in the Republican party and with the American people.
Last weekend, on Sunday Morning Futures, he told Maria Bartiromo, "what he wants is attention in this process. He is not a criminal lawyer. He never met Mueller. He never met Barr. And now comes he did with this? "
" It's very disturbing, "McCarthy noted. "This is exactly what you would expect from Justin. He never supported the president. And I think he's just looking for attention."
JUSTIN AMASH GOP PRIMARY CHALLENGER: "TOTAL RIDICULOUS "TO TAKE TRUMP'S IMPEACHMENT
" Mr. Amash always has a different list of votes than most of us, anyway, "McCarthy told Tuesday's journalists.
In a number of tweets on Saturday, Amash said to prevent justice as described in Special Report Robert Mueller's Russian Interference Report The presidential election in 201
"While oppression only had to take place in extraordinary circumstances," he said that, unlike many of his colleagues, he had read the Mueller report fully "the risk we face in an extreme party's environment is not that Congress will apply it. as a means too often, but rather that Congress will use it so infrequently that it can not deter abuse. "
Amash, founder of the Conservative House Freedom Caucus, told The Associated Press," Your pressure has no influence I'm really not worried about what Kevin McCarthy thinks of it. "On Monday, caucus voted to condemn Amash's call for execution by a hand.
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH), the Supreme Republican at the House Oversight Committee and a former chairman of Freedom Caucus, said each member participated in their opposition to Amash's comments. Jordan tweeted in response to Tuesday: "The @ freedomcaucus is about FREEDOM. This is not about Amash. It is not even about the president. It is about what Emmet Flood said: If the Intel community can target the president for political reasons, Imagine what they can do for any of us. "
President Trump also fired on Sunday, tweeting:" Never a fan of @justinamash, a total lightweight that contradicts me and some of our amazing Republican ideas and policies just to get his name out there through controversy. "
"If he actually reads the partial Mueller Report," composed "of 18 Angry Dems, who hated Trump, he would see that it was nevertheless strong in no collapse and ultimately NOT OBSTRUCTION …" Trump said. "How do you prevent when there is no crime and in fact the crimes were committed by the other side? Justin is a loser who unfortunately plays right into our opponents (sic) hands!"

National GOP President Ronna McDaniel accused Amash of "Parrot Democrats" talking about Russia. "
Closer to home, Michigan State Secretary Jim Lowe said he would run for Amash's place in Republican primary next year. While Michigan GOP chairman Laura Cox attacked Amash's lack of loyalty tweeting:" In a desperate attempt to get hold of In headlines and promoting his own president's ambitions, Amash peddling a tale that has been repeatedly proved false. Shameful. "
Any Movement By Prosecution would be a formal charge from Parliament. The Senate will then hold an attempt to write off President Trump in his office. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds his increasingly restless caucus for a step-by-step process and says that it would take more Republicans than just Amash and a broad public mood to trigger charges.
