Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz has made a shocking discovery about the Democrats articles of impeachment, and he wasted little time informing President Donald Trump and Americans.
Nearly three weeks ago, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives passed both articles of impeachment — obstruction of Congress and abuse of power — against the president.
Cruz said the articles of impeachment do not contain any criminal charges and would be tossed out in any courtroom in America.
Cruz told Breitbart News the House Democrats’ unprecedented impeachment of 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.
He went on to say that the articles are so flimsy, they don’t even allege that “any federal law was violated.”
“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.
“The reason they’re going to be rejected is they don’t satisfy the constitutional standard,” explained Cruz.
“The Constitution requires that to impeach a president, you have to demonstrate high crimes and misdemeanors,” he added. “The House Democrats haven’t done that.”
The sham, bogus, and highly partisan impeachment witch hunt is nothing more than Democrats latest attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
On the first article of impeachment, “abuse of power,” Democrats voted 228–2, Republicans voted 0–195, and the one independent member of Congress voted for impeachment.
The vote on the second article of impeachment, “obstruction of Congress,” Democrats voted 228–3, Republicans voted 0–195, and the one independent member of Congress voted for impeachment.
Not a single Republican voted in favor of either bogus impeachment charge.
It’s clear to anyone who has been paying attention that Democrats have no case, which is why Speaker Nancy Pelosi is refusing to send the impeachment articles to the Senate.
Democrats are complaining about McConnell possibly holding an unfair investigation, but that’s literally what Democrats just did for three months.
When Democrats hold Soviet-style trials and limit the other side from having any say at all — there’s no problem at all.
But before the impeachment trial likely moves into the Senate — Democrats are whining, issuing ridiculous demands, and already claiming the process is “rigged.”
Pelosi and Democrats shouted for months in front of every camera that Trump must be impeached to protect the country.
Now, they aren’t so urgent anymore. Pelosi is refusing to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate, which is her constitutional duty.
They have accused Trump of just about everything imaginable, and after months of wasting taxpayer dollars to hold impeachment hearings, they still can’t prove the president did anything wrong.
And when the Senate trail does begin, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already revealed exactly what’s going to happen.
