Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) tore into President Donald Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr while offering his critical analysis of the redacted Mueller report in a Twitter thread Saturday afternoon.

Amash argued that Trump “engaged in impeachable conduct” and Barr “intended to mislead the public” about Mueller’s findings.

The GOP rep. notes that he is now offering his conclusions after reading the redacted report “carefully and completely.”

Along with Barr and Trump, Amash criticized members of Congress who he claims didn’t read the report and whose “minds were made up based on partisan affiliation.”
