Asked this week by a conservative radio host about the impeachment of Trump, U.S. Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) said the president has done nothing wrong except “trigger the sensibilities of a bunch of very soft people.”
“They have no evidence that rises to the level of a high crime or misdemeanor,” Buck told KHOW’s Jon Caldara Monday. “They have no evidence that suggests that this president has done anything other than trigger the sensibilities of a bunch of very soft people.”
If so, one of those soft people would be Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, as we know thanks to Buck, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee.
Buck himself asked Mueller in July if Mueller “could charge the president with a crime after he left office.”
“Yes,” Mueller replied flatly.
Most recently, Trump has been accused of obstructing the investigation of the House Judiciary Committee by instructing former aids not to testify before the panel, which is controlled by Democrats.
Buck said on air that there’s “zero” chance impeachment will be “voted on on the floor of the House.”
“The impeachment itself — the charging of the President itself — will never happen in this Congress,” said Buck on air.
Buck also told Caldara that he’s opposed to all federal red flag legislation, which would allow judges to take guns from people deemed dangerous–and he argued vehemently against a ban on assault weapons, saying they are used by people in “rural Colorado” to shoot “raccoons” or “prairie dogs, whatever.”
Listen to Buck on KHOW Sept. 16:
Because lying about consensual sex is an impeachable offense.
In February of 1974, the House Judiciary Committee set up rules for investigation. In August, after hearings and court battles, Nixon resigned rather than allowing the full House to consider the Articles of Impeachment drafted and approved by the Committee.
In September of 2019, the House Judiciary Committee set rules for investigation. I guess we will see if in the next six months, there will be Articles drawn up for Committee and full House consideration.
Meanwhile, a House minority member is saying “The impeachment itself — the charging of the President itself — will never happen in this Congress.” Why his prediction is worth much of anything escapes me.
Worst prosecutor evah.
A bunch of people with soft hearts and hard heads, who are tired of dragging our high heels through Ken Buck’s BS, will be teaching him to spell next year. It’s I-M-P-E-A-C-H, Mr. Buck. It’s one cure for voter’s remorse.
Apparently, moral turpitude, financial self-dealing, endangering lives and our national security by exposing sensitive intelligence sources, placing corrupt individuals with severe conflicts of interest into high office, and general failure to uphold his oath of office to protect and defend the constitution against enemies, foreign and domestic don't count in Congressman Buck's moral universe.
It is always unfortunate when lawmakers and those who claim to be "tough on crime" have so little regard for the law.
