Republican Rep. Ken Buck once again called out his fellow Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, this time criticizing her efforts to impeach Democratic President Joe Biden.
Despite being an outspoken supporter of impeaching Biden, Greene urged Congress in a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday to “not rush” an impeachment vote and instead vote to support an impeachment inquiry. Greene, a Georgia Republican, has previously filed multiple articles of impeachment against Biden, including one in January 2021 on Biden’s first day as president. She has since appeared to change her tune, calling on her congressional colleagues to launch an investigation “no matter how long it takes.”
Buck, a Colorado Republican, blasted Greene in an interview with MSNBC on Sunday. Inside Jen Psakihe said the idea that the Make America Great Again champion is an “expert” on impeachment is “ridiculous.”
Psaki, former Biden White House press secretary, asked Buck about Greene’s recent change of urgency in impeaching Biden.
The MSNBC host quoted one of the Greene’s X posts That said, “There are very important reasons why our country should allow Congress to vote in support of an impeachment inquiry rather than rush into an impeachment vote.”
“It’s a shift in the timeline, a little bit of a brake,” Psaki said before asking Buck what he thought of Greene’s post.
“Marjorie filed articles of impeachment against President Biden two and a half years ago before he was sworn in,” Buck said. “The idea that she is now an impeachment expert or that she should set the timing of impeachment is ridiculous.”
Weekly newspaper Representatives for Green and Buck were contacted for comment Sunday via email and phone.
Buck also told Psaki that he did not believe there was evidence that would lead to the president’s impeachment.
“The time for impeachment is when there is evidence that President Biden committed a high crime or a misdemeanor,” he said. “That doesn’t exist yet.”
Greene responded to Buck’s criticism of MSNBC in a post on X on Sunday night.
“When did Ken Buck announce he was a Democrat?” Green posted. “The amount of money Joe Biden is shilling is staggering. It’s almost like he’s hoping Joe will appoint him to do something.”
Buck and Greene have clashed multiple times this summer, including last week when the congressman mocked the Georgia Republican’s past as a former CrossFit gym owner.
In a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter), Green criticizes Buck On Sept. 5, he defended the defendants’ treatment on Jan. 6 after a Republican official in his home state of Colorado claimed their constitutional rights were violated.
Greene, an outspoken ally of former President Donald Trump and supporter of his false claims of election fraud, slammed Buck, a member of the right-wing Freedom Caucus, for opposing efforts to impeach Biden and voting to certify the Democratic president’s victory in 2020 election.
Buck fired back at the congresswoman two days later during an interview on conservative talk radio, where he mocked Greene’s past involvement in CrossFit and her ignorance of the U.S. Constitution. The Colorado Republican has served as a federal prosecutor and law professor.
