Ken Buck Testifies In Case Against Trump In Colorado

 November 4, 2023

There has been some high-profile testimony delivered in Donald Trump's Colorado ballot case, and it's coming from Rep. Ken Buck, a Republican from the state.

Plaintiffs in the matter are seeking to disqualify Trump from the 2024 ballot under the Constitution's 14th Amendment.

Buck appeared remotely as a witness for Trump's side.

The congressman and Trump's attorneys were trying to discredit the House select committee that investigated the unrest that occurred at America's Capitol following the former president's "loss" in the 2020 election.

Buck described a scene in which "U.S. Capitol Police tried to barricade the House chamber from rioters."

"A police officer came to the microphone and said that tear gas had been dispersed. And we were advised that there were gas masks under our seats, and we should deploy those gas masks," Buck said. There was clear indication that there was a danger at that point."

"I came back to my office rather than the secure committee room, and I saw on TV what was going on, and I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, there are a lot of people out there,’" Buck added.
