Republican lawmakers will be under ‘enormous pressure’ to impeach President Joe Biden if they take back the House of Representatives in this year’s midterm elections, Texas Senator Ted Cruz said on the latest episode of his podcast.
On The Verdict With Ted Cruz, the southern Republican accused Democrats of ‘weaponizing’ impeachment against twice-impeached former President Donald Trump.
Asked about whether his colleagues in the House will respond in kind, Cruz said: ‘I do think theres a chance of that. Whether it’s justified or not, Democrats weaponized impeachment.’
‘They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him,’ Cruz claimed.
He said there are ‘multiple grounds’ on which to impeach Biden, singling out the southern border crisis and record number of migrants crossing into the US and straining American immigration infrastructure.
