Republicans opened impeachment inquiries into both Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Now all hell is breaking loose. 

And Joe Biden breathed a sigh of relief when a key Republican delivered this impeachment stunner.

Ken Buck defends Joe Biden from impeachment inquiry 

Retiring Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) was one of the three Republicans who voted against articles of impeachment against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Buck is also a vocal opponent of impeaching President Joe Biden.

Newsmax host Rob Schmitt confronted him about his defense of Biden and Mayorkas.

Schmitt asked Buck how he could possibly believe Joe Biden wasn’t aware of his family members raking in millions of dollars from foreign oligarchs in what many believe was an obvious influence-peddling scheme.

“In your heart of hearts, do you really believe that Joe Biden had absolutely no idea how his family was raking in millions and millions of dollars from around the world?” Schmitt asked.

Despite the evidence that Joe Biden showed up at dinners with Hunter Biden and his business associates and went on speaker phone at least 20 times with his son’s business associates, Buck claimed he couldn’t prove Joe Biden actually did anything wrong.

“Rob, that question to me is irrelevant. I prosecuted for 25 years. The question is, can I prove it? Can I prove that Joe Biden took some action? Can I prove that Joe Biden got money? That’s the question that we have to answer before we impeach a President that has been duly elected by the American public, and that’s the issue right now. They impeached Trump twice. I voted against both those impeachments because they did not have evidence of a high crime or misdemeanor. We did not have evidence of a high crime or misdemeanor with Alejandro Mayorkas,” Buck added.

Buck gets impeachment wrong 

Schmitt then pivoted to Mayorkas by asking Buck how he couldn’t support impeaching him after he lied to Congress by saying the border was secure.

“High crimes, misdemeanors, whatever you wanna call it, I mean when your job is to secure a country and you just let everybody come in, and you invite everybody in and you bring in all that crime and misery,” Schmitt stated. “I just don’t understand how that doesn’t meet the bar of impeachment for Mayorkas.”

“Well, what’s the crime? What’s the crime? 18 United States Code. You tell me, Rob. What’s the crime?” Buck shot back.

“I think lying to the public over and over again, telling them that the border is secure, I think that should be a crime,” Schmitt responded. “I mean, I think it should be a crime to take a job and to exploit it for just the opposite. Is it not?”

Buck then claimed it was just Mayorkas’ opinion that the border was secure and that you can’t charge someone with lying to Congress for an opinion.

 “Well, it’s not a crime to take a job and then exploit it for the opposite, but in terms of lying to Congress, that is a crime, and in his opinion the border was secure. In my opinion, it’s not secure. In your opinion, it’s not secure. But when you start getting into opinions and charging people under 18 United States Code 1001 with a false statement, that gets very specific and he would not be convicted in front of a jury,” Buck concluded.

Both Mayorkas and Biden are responsible for releasing illegal alien Jose Ibarra into America in September 2022.

Police just arrested Ibarra for the murder of University of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley.

And many conservatives are wondering if helping to facilitate a murder by refusing to enforce immigration law isn’t an impeachable offense then what is.
