Appearing on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tx) called Nancy Pelosi’s stalling on delivering the articles of impeachment to the Senate a “sign of weakness” and an “admission of failure.”
I think this is a sign of weakness. This is a sign she understands just how weak these articles are. These articles of impeachment that they actually voted on were really an admission of failure.
For months, they had been promising all of this evidence of criminal activity. For months, they’d be talking about bribery, they’d be talking about quid pro quo. But then they heard all the evidence and they got no evidence of it and these articles don’t allege any crime.
This is the first time in the history of our country that a president has been impeached without a single article alleging any criminal conduct. They don’t allege any crime, they don’t even allege any federal law that was violated. This was at the end of the day a political response because Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats hate the president.
In a separate interview, Cruz says “”Pelosi is trying to strong-arm Senate Republicans and her threat is ‘do exactly what I want in the Senate or else I’m not going to impeach the President.”
