It looks like Rep. Justin Amash, the lone Republican who agrees with pursuing the impeachment of President Donald Trump, may have ulterior motives for doing so.
The representative from Michigan has attempted to justify his call by claiming Trump has violated the constitution. However closer scrutiny has revealed that Amash has several business interests that are based in China, interests that will not fair well as the trade tensions between the two nations continue to mount.
Amash has a significant ownership stake in Michigan Industrial Tools (MIT). In 2015 alone he received roughly $1 million in annual income.
MIT is also the parent company to Tekton Tools, the family business of mash which relies on Chinese manufacturing.
That isn’t Amash’s only Chinese tie in either. In 2010 MLive revealed that Amash was the co-owner of Dynamic Source International (DSI). DSI was a Chinese company that also served as a MIT supplier.
Lonny Paris, who at the time served as campaign manager to Amash’s political opponent Democrat Pat Miles Jr., called out Amash’s conflicting interests point blank.
“The fact is, instead of making American-made products made by American workers, Justin Amash has chosen Chinese workers to make products which he then sells in America,” Paris had stated.
While still outrageous, Amash’s actions are far less surprising as it becomes known that he’s a sleazy business man willing to throw the president under the bus in order to make a few bucks.
