Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump should be impeached and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” Robert Mueller’s report.

Amash, a libertarian whose views often put him at odds with Trump and his other Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings.
