Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) has criticized the House GOP’s push to impeach President Biden, and his stance is putting him at odds with some members of his own party.
Earlier this month, Buck said in an interview with CNN that he was not convinced that there was enough evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry. He also said that he was concerned that an impeachment inquiry would be a distraction from other important issues, such as the economy and national security.
However, Buck’s stance appeared to soften on Tuesday after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced that he was launching an impeachment inquiry without a vote. Buck said that he still had concerns about the inquiry, but that he would “stay focused on spending.”
Buck’s criticism of the impeachment inquiry is likely to anger some members of the House GOP, who are eager to impeach Biden. However, Buck’s stance is also likely to be popular with some voters, who are tired of the political gridlock in Washington.
It remains to be seen whether Buck’s criticism will have a significant impact on the impeachment inquiry. However, it is clear that Buck is willing to stand up for what he believes in, even if it means going against his own party.
