Ken Buck claims ‘Moscow Marjorie’ is getting talking points from Putin

Former Colorado Republican Rep. Ken Buck accused Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) of receiving talking points from Russian President Vladimir Putin, specifically over her stance against providing financial aid to Ukraine.

The former congressman took issue with Greene for wanting to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), arguing that the speaker would be doing the right thing in providing aid to Ukraine in its war against Russia. He also claimed that “we know” Greene is getting talking points from Russia, adding that such talking points are incorrect.

“The fact that Marjorie is continuing down this false path, I don’t think many Republicans are going to support her,” Buck said in a Monday interview. “There will be some, and I expect that the Democrats recognize this moment in history and the importance of being bipartisan in supporting Mike Johnson.”

Buck also rebuked Greene’s recent comments that some are wondering if Johnson is being blackmailed, which she discussed in an interview with Tucker Carlson. The former congressman described these statements as “another distraction” made by her, arguing she is focused on drawing attention to herself.

“She was always focused on her social media account,” Buck said. “And Moscow Marjorie is focused now on this Ukraine issue and getting her talking points from the Kremlin and making sure that she is popular and she is getting a lot of coverage.”

Buck resigned from office last month, describing his last congressional term as the worst he ever served in the House. Prior to his resignation, he was one of eight Republicans who joined all Democrats in ousting former California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy from his position as speaker of the House.


Greene filed a motion to vacate Johnson last month, accusing him of failing to secure the border under his leadership. She also claimed there is no difference between him and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and that he has been acting like a Democrat.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) argued on Sunday that he believes Johnson is “a good guy” but that it would be a “disgrace” for him to focus on helping Ukraine without securing the United States’s southern border.
