Amash reportedly told HuffPost while in a House elevator filled with Republicans that the president’s allies in the House “talk about it like we’re all stupid,” referring to the impeachment process after U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland testified before the House Intelligence Committee.
“Sondland testified to a quid pro quo. He testified to significant details and facts. He testified that he thought it was wrong. So the inference is obvious that the president was withholding security assistance,” Amash said, referring to the White House’s decision to withhold security assistance to Ukraine while the president pushed the country’s leader to open a criminal investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.
“They talk about it like we’re all stupid, like we can’t see what’s going on,” Amash said, adding, “If this were any grand jury proceeding, it would be obvious to everyone.”
