Breitbart: Ted Cruz: Democrats’ Mark First Time in History President Impeached Without ‘A Single Article Alleging Any Criminal Conduct’

News|12.22.19

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) told Breitbart News on Friday that the House Democrats’ unprecedented impeachment of President Donald Trump marks the first time in U.S. history in which a president has been impeached “without even a single article alleging any criminal conduct.”

“Never before in history has a president been impeached without even a single article alleging any criminal conduct — without an article alleging even any federal law was violated,” said Cruz.

The senator spoke to Breitbart News on Friday, before addressing thousands of students and young activists at Turning Point USA’s fifth annual Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Florida.

“What we’ve seen in the House has been a total partisan circus,” said Cruz. “It has been a one-sided show trial, and it has been a sad, sad time for the House of Representatives — this is an expression of partisan anger and hatred from House Democrats against the president.”

Nonetheless, Cruz said he was sure the impeachment would fail in the Senate, after the president is given an opportunity to defend himself in a proceeding that will respect his due process rights.
