Ted Cruz: Time to Impeach Biden, Evidence of Obstruction Against Garland

Republicans are now beating the drums for the impeachment of Joe Biden, and the walls are starting to crumble for the president.

Chief among the hawks is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is now pressing the House on impeachment.

Asked at what point the investigation and problems pertaining to Hunter Biden turn into an issue for the president, which could lead to impeachment efforts by Republicans, Cruz said: “It is right now.”

“Look, this WhatsApp is direct evidence of Joe Biden abusing his government power to enrich his son, and, assuming 10% for the big guy, to enrich himself,” Cruz continued. “Remember, this WhatsApp says ‘we want to know.’ This is not just me, Hunter, just mooching off my dad… Of course the House needs to investigate it, but the stunning thing is what the IRS whistleblower says is [Department of Justice], Merrick Garland prevented an investigation even into this message.”

Cruz said the WhatsApp message “directly ties Joe Biden to the millions of dollars coming from communist China.”

“Now, it is possible Hunter Biden was lying, it’s possible Joe Biden wasn’t next to him. It’s possible Joe Biden was not going to inflict official damage on the Chinese if they didn’t pay him and his son millions of dollars. That’s possible, but you know what, we don’t know if it’s true or not. Why? Because, according to the whistleblower, they didn’t investigate, and they were prohibited from investigating. They were prevented from even asking the question.”

“Let me be clear: This, on the face of it, is obstruction of justice,” he said. “And if Merrick Garland issued that order, he is the one blocking the investigation, and I think there’s real evidence of Merrick Garland being guilty of obstruction of justice.”

Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee who has served in the Senate since 2013, said, “If you had a single Democrat who gave a flying flip about the rule of law, we would have a hearing right now with Merrick Garland in front of us, under oath, asking about this WhatsApp,” he said. “We would ask to see every document, we would ask to see every email, we’d ask to see every communication between DOJ and the investigators. We would put the IRS whistleblowers on the stand, under oath to testify about it, and we would confront Merrick Garland with that.”

But he said that wasn’t going to happen in the Senate because the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrat Dick Durbin (IL), would presumably block it. But he said it could happen in the House, and he called on them to start the process. As we’ve reported, Rep. Andy Ogles (R-TN) has filed Articles of Impeachment in the House against both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. As he said, they need to hold Garland’s feet to the fire, and he needs to be questioned on the alleged interference in the investigation coming from the DOJ. He also needs to be questioned on whether the U.S. Attorney in Delaware had the freedom to act, as the IRS whistleblowers are contradicting what Garland is claiming.

The Biden team isn’t handling things well—they’re doing all they can to scramble as things start to fall apart, and they’re not doing a particularly good job of it.

Hunter’s attorney tried to use his addiction to excuse for what Hunter Biden said in the WhatsApp message, suggesting that it didn’t pertain to Joe Biden. Then, White House Counsel spokesperson Ian Sams gave some bad spin: “As we have said many times before, the President was not in business with his son.” Except that’s not what Biden or his spokespeople have said. What Biden said was that he’s never talked with his son about his business dealings or his overseas business deals. The fact that they are now trying to shift the goalposts means they recognize that there’s a problem.

Here’s a sample:

They can spin, but they can’t eliminate the internet and all the times Joe Biden said it.

All the Republicans should be standing together on the impeachment of Biden.
