House Freedom Caucus roiled by Trump’s attacks on Mark Sanford

President Trump’s public attacks on Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) have roiled members of the House Freedom Caucus, with one lawmaker almost threatening to quit the conservative group over its muted response to the president’s repeated criticisms.

That anger reached a boiling point during a heated meeting on Monday night when Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) pressed fellow members to more forcefully defend Sanford, a fellow Freedom Caucus member and vocal Trump critic who lost his primary in South Carolina earlier this month. Amash was yelling to the point that he was overheard by reporters outside the meeting room.
