Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, last week predicted that Republicans would impeach President Biden if the party wins control of the House in the 2022 midterms (as is widely expected).
On the latest edition of his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast released last Friday, the senator said he expects House Republicans to retaliate against the Biden administration for the numerous investigations Democrats launched into Donald Trump
“If we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration,” Cruz said. He predicted that Republicans may also impeach the president “whether it’s justified or not.”
“They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him,” Cruz said, referring to Democrats. “One of the real disadvantages of doing that, and it is something you and I talked about at great length, the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.”
Cruz added, “That’s not how impeachment is meant to work, but I think the Democrats crossed that line. I think there’ll be enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings,” he said.
Asked Tuesday about Cruz’s remarks, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the senator should work with the White House and congressional Democrats on immigration reform rather than making accusations.
