Amash Quits Freedom Caucus
The move comes weeks after he became the lone Republican to call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
The Michigan lawmaker told a CNN reporter that he has “the highest regard for them, and they’re my close friends."
He said he “didn’t want to be a further distraction for the group.”
Amash’s decision to step down was confirmed to POLITICO by his office.
Amash is a founding member of the Freedom Caucus.
