Powerful Michigan Political Family Ends Longtime Support of Fake Libertarian Liberal Justin Amash

I imagine that he's been reassured by certain factions that he will get corporate support if he runs for president, and that he'll get corporate gigs after he loses. So I don't think he really cares about elective politics anymore anyway.

The Ruling Class protects its pawns. (To some extent, at least.)

The powerful DeVos family of West Michigan is ending its longtime support of U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, the libertarian Republican who has repeatedly clashed with President Donald Trump.

The family has not made any political contributions to Amash this cycle and "they have no plans to do so," said family spokesman Nick Wasmiller.

...

"Family members have expressed increasing concerns about a lack of representation for their district, the Third Congressional, and I would say an inability to advance efforts connected to important policy matters," he said.

They also cited his Ruling-Class-pleasing support for impeachment.

The Freedom Caucus is sick of his Kristol Meth addiction too.

The House Freedom Caucus on Monday night formally condemned one of its founding members for declaring that President Trump committed impeachable offenses, but stopped short of kicking Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) out of the hard-line conservative group.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee and a former chairman of the Freedom Caucus, said that every single member in attendance during a weekly caucus meeting was unified in their opposition toward Amash's comments. The group, which took a show of hands, needs the support of 80 percent of its members to take a formal position on an issue.

"It was every single person who totally disagrees with what he says," Jordan said after the meeting.

Amash did not attend the meeting, but Jordan said he spoke to Amash Saturday night to ask, "What are you doing?"
