GOP congressman’s message to Trump: ‘If you’re innocent, start acting like it’

During an interview on CNN this Thursday, Colorado GOP Rep. Ken Buck took aim at Donald Trump over his attack on the criminal justice system.

Authorities in Georgia are investigating threats targeting members of the grand jury that indicted Trump and 18 of his alleged co-conspirators in regards to the effort to overturn the 2020 election results. Trump has personally attacked officials who are involved in his indictment, including Fulton County D.A. Fani Willis.

Buck slammed the threats against the grand jurors, “who are just doing their civic duty, showing up and doing their job as Americans, is despicable.”

“And if you’re innocent, start acting like it,” he said, referring to Trump.

“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.”

Buck has been a defender of Trump, saying the Georgia indictment and said on CNN that he expects the GOP to survive the attack on Trump due to the party’s “strong message when it comes to running against Joe Biden’s record.”

“And I think that other candidates are going to be able to step up and really assume that mantle,” Buck added.
