U.S. Rep. Ken Buck, a Windsor Republican, said Monday that Joe Biden could be impeached today.

During an appearance on Fox Business, Buck was asked about a claim by Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, that under House Democrats’ current standards for impeachment, which Republicans consider to be very low, Biden could be impeached next year if he is elected president this November.

“There is no reason to wait for that. Vice President Biden could be impeached now. There’s no reason that you have to only impeach someone who is in office,” said Buck, a former federal prosecutor and chair of the Colorado Republican Party.

“You can hold the hearings; you can gather the evidence; you can move forward. The extent of the corruption that you see — at least the allegations of corruption that you see — around the Biden family is very troubling.”
