Texas Sen. Ted Cruz recently stated that President Joe Biden could find himself getting impeached, “whether it’s justified or not,” after “the Democrats weaponized impeachment,” by impeaching former President Donald Trump twice while he was in office.
“I said at the time when we have a Democratic president and a Republican House, you can expect an impeachment proceeding,” Cruz went on to say during an interview on his podcast, Verdict with Ted Cruz, on Friday. “That’s not how impeachment is meant to work, but I think the Democrats crossed that line, and I think they’ll be enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings.”
Though Cruz is not in favor of normalizing impeachment, he does believe there are “potentially multiple grounds” to consider on the impeachment of Biden, with the most compelling being “the utter lawlessness of President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border.” Cruz said Biden has defied federal immigration laws and allowed “2 million people to come in here unimpeded.”
The Biden administration asked the Supreme Court to review its case seeking to end former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” immigration policy on Wednesday amid a surge in migrants. A total of 1.7 million migrants were encountered at the southern border in fiscal year 2021, which ended in September, officials said.
Cruz, who is “very optimistic” about the Republicans’ chances in the midterm elections, said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a favorite to become speaker if Republicans retake the House, would be wise to spearhead investigations into Biden.
However, the Texas Republican was not quite as certain about the Republican Party’s chances when it comes to the Senate, going on to state that the odds of achieving victory there are split 50-50. He went on to say that the reason for this is because there are “more vulnerable Republican seats” in the Senate up for grabs in 2022 than there are for the Democrats.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
It’s critical though that we push as hard as possible so that we can get control over Congress and help pump the breaks on the radical agenda of President Biden and hopefully take the White House in 2024.
