U.S. Representative Justin Amash is leaving the Republican party. Yesterday, in a Fourth of July Op-ed article published in the Washington Post, the Cascade Republican explained partisan politics damaging American democracy is one of the reasons for hi departure.

Representative Amash is the only Republican member of Congress to accuse President Donald Trump of impeachable conduct. Amash, who represents Michigan's 3rd Congressional district, attended the 85th Annual Hollyhock Lane Fourth of July Parade in Grand Rapids.

That’s where Patrick Center spoke with the Congressman about his decision to leave the GOP.
