Michigan Congressman Justin Amash delivered a clever K-O this week in a Twitter back-and-forth with Donald Trump Jr.
Amash, a fifth-term representative facing a primary challenge since breaking with his party to call for President Trump's impeachment, responded to a primary threat from Trump Jr. by quoting from a 2016 email in which Trump Jr. said he'd accept dirt from Russians on Hillary Clinton.

Jr. really set himself up for it. Responding to an email from an intermediary promising “sensitive information” about Clinton, the Republican candidate's son wrote three years ago: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
The president hasn't yet said whether he'll support one of Amash's two challengers. The congressman has represented Michigan's 3rd district since 2011.
