Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has been on the frontlines telling it like it is when it comes to President Donald Trump’s impeachment, and the news networks have been thirsty for him.
While on with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo, Cruz, chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, laid out how flimsy the case against Trump was. To highlight just how flimsy it was, Cruz made it clear that the Democrats have brought nothing against Trump that can be legally held against him, not even so much as a speeding ticket.
“I do think what we have seen coming out of the House is an abuse of the Constitution,” Cruz said. “And the reason is that they’re using this for political purposes. This is the first time in history any president is alleged – has been impeached without the articles alleging any criminal conduct at all, without alleging any federal crime was violated.”
“They don’t allege any federal law was violated. They don’t even allege as much as that the president has a speeding ticket, and that has never happened in our country’s history,” Cruz added. “And to use impeachment like the House Democrats are doing, to express their political disagreement with the president, to try to overturn an election they’re unhappy with, that is an abuse of the Constitution.”
Watch the interview for yourself below.
I’d like to add to a point that Cruz just made, though.
The Democrats are doing this in order to express political disagreement, but while the disagreement may be, in part, with Trump, it’s more with you.
The American people elected Trump to the office and the Democrats have been trying to correct your mistake ever since. The nefariousness of this goes overlooked too often, but while the Democrats were impeaching Trump, they were also impeaching you. They were removing you from the position of decision-maker and seeing to it that your vote doesn’t count. If they don’t like your decision, Democrats have made it clear that they will go out of their way and take every cheap shot available to them to invalidate your choice.
If Democrats are willing to cancel you out using virtually no evidence of wrongdoing at all, the question has to be asked: How far the Democrats will be willing to go to achieve power?
