"History will not look kindly on disingenuous, frivolous, and false defenses of this man."

He's right. The future of the GOP is on the line anyway. Considering the changing demographics and the young vote, pooh-poohing this impeachment could be the knockout punch for the GOP.

FORMER GOP REP. JUSTIN AMASH SLAMS REPUBLICANS: 'HISTORY WILL NOT LOOK KINDLY' ON 'FALSE DEFENSES' OF TRUMP
Independent Representative Justin Amash called out his Republican colleagues ahead of Thursday's House vote on a resolution laying out the rules for the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry, warning them that "history will not look kindly" on their defenses of President Donald Trump.​
Amash, who has been described as one of the most conservative members of the House, was elected as a Republican but formally declared himself an independent on July 4. The Michigan congressman parted ways with the vast majority of GOP lawmakers following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report regarding Trump's 2016 campaign and Russian election interference. Like many Democrats, he believed the report showed that the president had engaged in impeachable conduct.​
With the House Democrats' launch of a formal impeachment inquiry last month, Amash has been a lonely conservative voice in Congress supporting the investigation.​
"This president will be in power for only a short time, but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name," he tweeted on Thursday. "To my Republican colleagues: Step outside your media and social bubble. History will not look kindly on disingenuous, frivolous, and false defenses of this man."​
...On Wednesday, Amash also tweeted his criticism of the president and his defenders. "We swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, not an oath to support and defend Donald Trump's abuse of the office of the presidency," he wrote.​
