Michigan House Representative Matt Maddock (R) of Milford Township is calling for Governor Gretchen Whitmer's impeachment after the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services issued new restrictions on Sunday.
In a statement posted to Twitter, the Republican representative of the 44th District says he and a growing list of Michigan legislators have decided that Governor Whitmer has crossed the line and will be calling for hearings to impeach her, saying its long overdue.
Today, myself and a growing list of Michigan Legislators have decided that @GovWhitmer has crossed the line and will be calling for #ImpeachWhitmer hearings. The list of violations is long and the call is overdue #MIGOP #MILEG

Maddock also posted on his personal Facebook page saying other Michigan lawmakers are calling for hearings for Governor Whitmer to be impeached.
Among the reasons listed, Maddock said Whitmer ignored court orders, violated our Constitutional rights, and completely ignored due process.
Maddock also claimed Whitmer 'weaponized contact tracing databases to aid democrat campaigns'.
We have reached out to the governor for comment on this but have not yet heard back.
