U.S. Sen. Cruz: Democrats Want a Week of Political Theater

With the Democrats’ impeachment trial underway in the Senate, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) this week appeared on Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ and ‘America’s Newsroom’ to discuss what Americans can expect from the trial and the threat China continues to pose to the United States.

“We’re going to see this week a whole lot of Democrats pounding the table. We’re going to see a lot of moralizing and a lot of [Democrats] really venting their hatred for Donald Trump. In case you haven’t been paying attention the last four years, the Democrats really, really, really hate Donald Trump. And they’re going to attack President Trump over and over and over and over again,” said Cruz.

“Then it’s going to end with failure. It is going to end with the president being acquitted. In order for the president to be convicted it takes 67 votes in the U.S. Senate. That’s not going to happen. It’s not going to get 67 votes, it’s not going to get close to 67 votes. Every one of the 100 senators knows that. Every one of the House Managers knows that. This is political theater, because rather than address the real problems, the real challenges we have in this country, rather than focus on getting kids back in school and getting tens-of-millions of Americans back to work–the Democrats want a week of just political theater raging at Donald Trump.”

Sen. Cruz slammed Democrats’ new standard of ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’.

“If you look at the language he [Donald Trump] used, saying things like ‘fight’ saying things like ‘go retake our country,’ –if that is now incitement, then we better prepare a long line to indict every candidate for office who’s ever run [and] anyone who’s ever given a stump speech,” Cruz said.

“We have had Democrats for a year cheering on–we’ve seen violence all over the country, we’ve seen riots all over the country. We’ve seen stores being looted, stores being firebombed, police cars being firebombed, police officers being assaulted, police officers being murdered, individual citizens being assaulted.”

“What did the Democrats do? They cheered it on. Our new vice president Kamala Harris not only encouraged them, she raised money to pay for the bail, to bail out the violent criminals. Now let me be clear: anyone who attacked the Capitol, anyone who attacked a police officer, they need to be prosecuted and they need to be put in jail [for] a long, long time. Nobody has a right to engage in violence. The difference is, you and I have been consistent in that we’ve said, if you’re engaged in violence, whether you’re left wing or right wing, that’s unacceptable. The Democrats have been complete hypocrites on this, cheering on BLM and Antifa and apologizing for their violence. The hypocrisy is really thick right now.”

Sen. Cruz also reminded readers and viewers that Democrats not only hate former President Trump, they hate the 75 million Americans who voted for him.

“We have the First Amendment, we have robust political speech. […] We shouldn’t be prosecuting people for speaking and we shouldn’t be impeaching them. This is political theater. And the reason they’re doing this–we need to understand this–it’s not just that they hate Donald Trump. They hate the 75 million Americans who voted for him. They’re trying to silence you. They’re trying to cancel you. They’re trying to erase you and it’s not going to work.”
