GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — The biggest winners to come out of Michigan congressman Justin Amash’s stand against President Donald Trump may be Democrats. Amash was the first Republican on Capitol Hill to call for Trump’s impeachment and has since decided to seek reelection as an independent, setting up a three-way race in his Grand Rapids-area district that could divide right-leaning voters. Amash is considering running for president as a Libertarian, another move that could hurt the Trump-led Republican Party.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is calling on other members of Congress to visit Israel while she and Rep. Rashida Tlaib cannot. Israel last week blocked the two Democratic House members from a planned trip to that country over their support for a Palestinian-led boycott movement. Omar is calling on her colleagues to “meet with the people we were going to meet with, see the things we were going to see, hear the stories we were going to hear.”

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama veterinarian is dead following an apparent drowning on Lake Michigan. News outlets report that 71-year-old George Seier jumped into the water to retrieve a sailboat dingy that had drifted away on Saturday afternoon. He was at Harbor Springs in the northern part of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. Seier swam about 75 yards and went under while treading water in about 10 feet of water. Seier had a large veterinary practice in Prattville, near Montgomery.

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan prosecutors say no criminal charges will be filed in connection with a motel fire that killed five children and an adult from the same family. Investigators determined the likely cause of the July 2018 fire at Benton Harbor’s Cosmo Extended Stay Inn was careless use of a hot plate by a hotel guest. Berrien County Prosecutor Michael J. Sepic said Monday that it’s not alleged “nor does the evidence suggest” that someone intentionally caused the blaze.
