Republican Justin Amash Calls for Impeachment – While Holding Personal Business Interests in China…

Michigan Republican Congressman Justin Amash made headlines Saturday by declaring on Twitter that President Trump deserved impeachment.  The media was quick to promote his position and advance an anti-Trump narrative.  However, a review of Amash’s financial interests quickly reveals a very personal business motive.  His family tool business is heavily invested in Chinese manufacturing.

In his 2017 financial disclosure forms (pdf here), Representative Amash reports income of between $100,000 to $1,000,000/yr. for his ownership stake in Michigan Industrial Tools.  Michigan Industrial Tools is the parent company, manufacturing in China, that produces Tekton Tools, Justin Amash’s Michigan family business.

According to an earlier Michigan article “Amash is a co-owner of Dynamic Source International, a Chinese company that supplies Michigan Industrial Tools.”  A visit to the website of Dynamic Source International (link) shows the company operates “manufacturing and factory facilities located in Hangzhou, capital city of Zhejiang Province”, China.

When you follow the internal link [“MIT-Tool“] within Dynamic Source International website, it connects to the portal of  Tekton Tools:

Dynamic Source International Link -and-  Tekton Tools Link

What you quickly discover is it appears Republican Congressman Justin Amash was challenged in 2010 [News Link] for his family business claiming to sell hand tools made in the U.S.A. but were actually manufactured in China.

Dynamic Source International and “Michigan Industrial Tools” (financial disclosure) appear as same corporation doing manufacturing in Hangzhou, China.  The finished product is then shipped/sold in the U.S. by the Amash family (Justin and his brother Jeff) under the name Tekton Tools.

Justin Amash was called out for lying about his product being manufactured in America during a campaign challenge.  For some reason the local media didn’t call Amash to task on the connection to his DC financial disclosures (maybe they didn’t look).

.

It is demonstrably a fact (as above) that “Michigan Industrial Tools” operates as a manufacturer in China, and the product they produced is Tekton Tools which is Amash’s family company (as admitted in the interview).

Obviously President Trump’s tariff and trade position against China is adverse to the financial interests of Justin Amash.

In addition to previously lying about his Michigan company selling product “Made In USA” and the nature of his business relationship with China, the family business contains the financial motive for Representative Amash to call for President Trump’s impeachment.

  4. Just so everyone knows, this time around, Mr. Amash is facing a credible challenger. Thomas J. Norton is an Afghanistan veteran, and successful businessman, who has finally had it with the congressman’s shenanigans. Mr. Norton is a good friend of mine (in addition to being a fellow veteran), and I would like all of you to check the man out (campaign website: https://tomnortonusa.com/) (facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/tomnortonusa/), and please contribute if you are so inclined.

      Kevin, does Michigan allow democrats to “cross over” to vote in Repub primaries? If so, this creep is scheming to defeat your candidate Norton with dem primary votes, forcing Michigan Republicans to vote for Amash in the 2020 election if they do not want a Dem representative. If so, it would probably be best to vote him out in 2020 and get an honest candidate in 2022.

        Yes, they can. Unless rules have changed recently, Michigan voters choose which primary they will vote on on primary election day. Once a choice is made, they cannot cannot vote for candidates from the other party. The choice can be changed at the next primary election.

        I expect that Amash will likely not win the republican primaries this time around due to his impeachment comments. However this guy has been a thorn to us for quite a while. If he loses his district has a lot of never trumpers who could possibly vote for him as a lolberterian candidate costing this seat to the democrats. Not sure but possible. In 2016 Amash got 57% to dims 39%. But Trump got 52% to Hillary’s 42%. Hypothetically, the republican who defeats amash could get 52% to dim’s 42% to Amash 6% ideally. However you never know as he’s been in the district a while and the numbers could go against us.

      mcfyre2012, you may be on to something, imho.

      fiefdom (countable and uncountable, plural fiefdoms) The estate controlled by a feudal lord; a fief. The duke’s fiefdom had been greatly expanded as a reward for his dutiful military service on behalf of the king. (by extension, chiefly derogatory) Any organization in the control of a dominant individual.

      https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/fiefdom

      What if we exchanged the word “fiefdom” with, say District. Perhaps House or Senate Seat.

      Something along the lines of…

      “You just do your thing. Whatever sick thing that is…we don’t especially care. Simply, do as we say, pass legislation we tell you to… and all will be well. Remember, you owe us. Just keep the Tools (In this case) coming in. We’ll make it worth your while.”

              Elections are state and local matters, not federal. Even when we vote for a pres/VP ticket, we are actually voting for electors derived from congressional districts, not the candidates themselves.

              I finally looked. Michigan’s constitution has had recall election language for over a century. It appears that there have been several recall elections of local officials. The process is pretty arduous, so not to be undertaken lightly. The law also applies to congressional delegations but has not been challenged in federal court. Quite frankly, I don’t see federal court as the proper venue.

              The good people in his district may wish to give it a try.
