Senator Ted Cruz, an unabashed critic of President Joe Biden, says that he believes that an impeachment of Biden is possible should the GOP retake the House in the midterms.
In a recent interview Cruz said that it is likely that Republicans will win back the House in 2022, and he said that if they do, they will probably consider impeaching President Biden.
Cruz appeared on “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” his podcast, and said Democrats “weaponized impeachment” during the Trump administration for partisan purposes – and they now could see a tit-for-tat response should the Republicans retake the House.
“One of the real disadvantages of doing that is the more you weaponized it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, you know what’s good for the goose is good for the gander,” the Texas Senator said.
Cruz also reposted an interview where he put the odds of Republicans taking back the House at 90-10 and 50-50 about taking back the evenly split Senate.
Last September, four House Republicans filed impeachment articles against Biden over his handling of the southern border and the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“I filed articles of impeachment against @POTUS based on what I believe to be clear violations of his duties,” Rep. Bob Gibbs of Ohio posted on Twitter after filing the impeachment articles. “There are dynamics in Congress preventing this from being debated. But I could not stand by while Biden commits flagrant & deliberate violations of his oath of office.”
Republicans have long accused Democrats of turning to impeachment to hamstring the Trump administration.
Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host, wrote, Democrats “need to keep Donald Trump at the center of the conversation. They’re impeaching him so they can continue to give speeches about him. It’s that simple.”
