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 in part thanks to Buck, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee.
Buck 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 authorize the taking of guns from people deemed dangerous–and he argued vehemently against a ban on assault weapons, as he has before, saying they are used by people in “rural Colorado” to shoot “raccoons” or “prairie dogs, whatever.”
