The Daily Wire: Ted Cruz: Democrats’ Articles Of Impeachment Are An ‘Admission Of Failure’ By PelosiNews|12.23.19
Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz explained over the weekend why the Democrats’ partisan articles of impeachment are an “admission of failure” by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and highlighted one of the most disturbing aspects of the FBI abuse that was uncovered by Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz in his report on the FBI’s misconduct in surveilling the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Cruz made the remarks during a Sunday interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo.
“So, Nancy Pelosi said after the impeachment that maybe she’ll sit on the articles of impeachment before sending it over to you and your colleagues in the Senate,” Bartiromo said. “Can she do that?”
“You know, you can’t make this up,” Cruz began. “Listen, I think this is a sign of weakness, that this is a sign she understands just how weak these articles are.”
“And these articles of impeachment that they actually voted on were really an admission of failure,” Cruz continued. “For months, they had been promising all of this evidence of criminal activity. For months, they’ve been talking about bribery, they’ve been talking about quid pro quo, but then they heard all the evidence, and they’ve got no evidence of it.”
“And these articles don’t allege any crime,” Cruz continued. “This is the first time in the history of our country that a president has been impeached without a single article alleging any criminal conduct. They don’t allege any crime; they don’t even allege any federal law that was violated. This was, at the end of the day, a political response because Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats hate the president.”
