Democrats spent the better part of former President Donald Trump’s time in office — and beyond — trying to impeach him for one infraction or another. That decision may soon come back to bite President Joe Biden.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Republicans could begin impeachment proceedings against Biden if they win back the House of Representatives in 2022, Breitbart reported. Cruz made this prediction in his Dec. 31 “The Verdict” podcast.
The Texas lawmaker cited Democrats’ use of impeachment as a “partisan cudgel” with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi leading the way. When considering whether Republicans would follow suit, Cruz foresees “a chance of that.”
“Whether it’s justified or not … the Democrats weaponized impeachment,” Curz pointed out. “They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him. And one of the real disadvantages of doing that … is the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel,” he said.
“You know what’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” Cruz added. “I said at the time when we had a Democratic president and a Republican House, you can expect an impeachment proceeding. That’s not how impeachment is meant to work, but I think the Democrats crossed that line.” he pointed out.
Cruz is also anticipating “enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings,” he continued. “I think there are potentially multiple grounds to consider for impeachment. Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness is President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border,” he claimed, “his decision to just deify immigration laws and allow 2 million people to come in here unimpeded in direct contravention of his obligation under Article 2 of the Constitution to take care that the laws be faithfully executed,” Cruz said.
“That’s probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment, but there may be others,” Cruz added. “And because Democrats decided this is just another tool in the partisan war chest, I think there is a real risk that turnabout will be fair play.”
Democrats were ruthless in their pursuit of any charge they thought they could make stick to Trump even each was one dud after the next. They’re about to pay the price for that with investigations of their own — except this time, Republicans have actual real scandals to go on.
