U.S. Representative Justin Amash is leaving the Republican party. Thursday, in an Op-ed article published in the Washington Post, the Cascade Republican explains partisan politics is damaging American democracy.

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 4th of July Parade in Grand Rapids.

WGVU spoke with the Congressman about his decision to leave the GOP.
