On Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said “there’s a chance” that Republicans will impeach President Biden if they win back the House in 2022.
During the latest episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz”, the senator said, “if we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration”.
When discussing the possibility of Republicans impeaching Biden, Cruz said “I do think there’s a chance of that”.
Cruz added that Democrats have “weaponized impeachment”. “They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him. One of the real disadvantages of doing that is the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, you know, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander”.
The senator said there are “multiple grounds to consider for impeachment” of President Biden. “Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness of President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border,” Cruz said.
“His decision to just defy federal immigration laws and allow 2 million people to come here unimpeded in direct contravention of his obligation under Article Two of the Constitution to take care that the laws be faithfully executed,” he explained.
“That is probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment, but there may be others. Because the Democrats decided this is just another tool in the partisan war chest, I think there is a real risk that this turnabout will be fair play,” he continued.
Cruz also spoke about the upcoming midterms, saying he is “very optimistic” about 2022. He “put the odds of the Republicans winning the House at 90/10”, but noted the chances “may even be higher than that”.
