One House Republican is ‘Struggling’ With Biden Impeachment Inquiry Vote



With the GOP-led House expected to vote on formalizing the corruption-focused impeachment inquiry against President Joe Biden this week, one Republican member said on Monday he is “struggling” with how to proceed.

Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO), who has criticized the probe in the past and could break with the vast majority of his party, explained to CNN that the way the White House rebuffed subpoenas and interview requests has raised some concerns with him.

“I’m struggling right now, I have to tell you,” Buck told anchor Erin Burnett, who asked how he plans to vote. “On the one hand, I have come out strongly and said there is no direct evidence linking President Biden to the activities of Hunter Biden,” the president’s son.

“And I have, at the same time, the White House who recently sent a letter after these committees issued subpoenas to the White House,” Buck added. “The White House sent a letter back and said, you haven’t held an impeachment inquiry vote yet, and we’re not going to give you any records until you pass an impeachment inquiry. I think that is an absolutely wrong position and it’s a delay tactic which would necessitate Congress going to the courts and having the courts enforce the subpoenas.”

He continued, “So, I wish the White House hadn’t done that. I don’t think there is direct evidence. I’m struggling, and I want to read the resolution before making a final decision on whether to vote for it or not.”

Three panels — the Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means Committees — have led the impeachment probe since mid-September, when then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced the endeavor. Congressional investigators have been looking into whether the business practices of Biden’s family members fostered corruption in government — spurred by a money trail showing millions of dollars from foreign countries — as well as the Department of Justice’s handling of a criminal probe into Hunter Biden.
