Top GOP Congressman Turns On Trump – Announces He’s Not Innocent

Published on

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) urged former President Donald Trump not to criticize the criminal justice system, despite the four indictments he faces in state and federal court.

Donald Trump has been charged by four distinct jurisdictions. On Monday, he was indicted in Georgia for attempting to manipulate the 2020 presidential election, which he incorrectly asserts was held against him. In addition to being indicted in federal court in Washington, D.C. for his schemes in that state and other states he lost, he is also facing charges in federal court in that state.

Thursday’s CNN Primetime presenter Abby Phillip questioned Buck about Trump’s suitability for the presidency.

“When you think about what this Georgia indictment, in particular, is alleging, just a whole lot of election falsehoods – Trump himself saying that he would hold a press conference on Monday to further those lies,” she began. “Now he’s saying he won’t do that… Do you ever wonder about just the mental fitness of a person who believes those lies, even though he’s told they’re not true, and whether that person should be the one who is potentially in the White House next?”

Before answering her query, Buck took a moment to condemn the threats made against the grand jurors involved in the case, as well as Trump’s recent remarks on attorneys, judges, and witnesses in response to the investigations into him.

“First of all, the discussion that you had earlier about these threats that are being made and other actions toward grand jurors and people doing their civic duty, showing up and doing their job as Americans, is despicable,” Buck replied. “And if you’re innocent, start acting like it. I can’t think of anything worse than trying to attack the criminal justice system because you’re a criminal defendant. And I think that’s just terrible of any defendant to go through that process.”

The congressman went on to say that despite Trump’s massive advantage over the Republican field, he is confident that at least one of the candidates will narrow the gap because the party has capable candidates.
