Now that President Trump’s acquittal is all but certain, Democrats have once again completely and miserably failed and Republican Ted Cruz is crediting Liz Warren for capping off the debacle.
The ridiculous antics by the anti-democracy party during the last three years reached an apex during the Senate phase of the sham impeachment and with the prospect of calling witnesses hanging in the balance, the Dems blew it for good.
Rather than act in a dignified manner that should be expected from a U.S. senator, the 2020 contender instead questioned the integrity of Chief Justice John Roberts who is presiding over the trial.
And that effectively killed any prospect that Roberts would be able to cast the critical tie-breaking vote if necessary and in the process, lost the support of RINO Lisa Murkowski.
During an episode of his new podcast The Verdict, the senator from Texas said that:
“Elizabeth Warren helped defeat the impeachment of the president of the United States”
Via The Washington Examiner, “Ted Cruz: Warren helped cement Trump acquittal with impeachment question”:
Sen. Ted Cruz is crediting Sen. Elizabeth Warren with helping sway senators to vote to acquit President Trump in his impeachment trial.
During the trial on Thursday, the Massachusetts Democrat, who is running for president, submitted a question to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts which questioned his credibility. The question was read aloud by Roberts.
“At a time when large majorities of Americans have lost faith in government, does the fact that the chief justice is presiding over an impeachment trial in which Republican senators have thus far refused to allow witnesses or evidence contribute to the loss of legitimacy of the chief justice, the Supreme Court, and the Constitution?” Warren, 70, asked.
Cruz, 49, said Warren tried to give her presidential campaign a boost ahead of the Iowa caucuses, but it backfired by driving Republicans to vote against calling additional witnesses to testify.
“Elizabeth Warren helped defeat the impeachment of the president of the United States,” the Texas Republican said on his podcast, The Verdict.
“That stunt helped deliver the votes of Lisa and Lamar,” he added, referring to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, an Alaska Republican, and Sen. Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican.
