Justin Amash Leaves House Freedom Caucus

GOP Rep.

Justin Amash stepped down from the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus on Monday night.

"I have the highest regard for them, and they're my close friends," Amash told CNN.

"I didn't want to be a further distraction for the group." The move comes after Amash ignited a firestorm within his own party by calling for President Donald Trump's impeachment last month.
