Democrats are wasting everyone’s time with this fake impeachment trial, despite the fact that there is no chance Trump will ever be convicted.
Ted Cruz spoke to Fox News on Thursday, where he said out loud what everyone else already knows.
In the interview, Cruz had this to say:
“The end result of this trial is obvious to every single person in the room.”
“President Trump is going to be aquitted.”
Cruz then explained that there is “no chance” that they will get the 67 votes needed to convict him.
Cruz also criticized the democrats’ standard for “incitement,” stating that the language, anger, and rhetoric from democrats exceeds anything President Trump said.
Ted Cruz told Fox News there is no chance President Trump will be convicted:
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Fox News "@ Night" on Thursday that there is no chance that former President Trump will be convicted for inciting last month’s riot at the Capitol, but laid out how he believes Trump's legal team should present their argument.
The House impeachment managers closed their case on Thursday and tried to tie the former president to the deadly assault in Washington, D.C. Cruz, who insisted that those who broke into the building should face the fullest extent of the law, said Democrats somehow tried to invent "a new standard" for an incitement charge. He said he held about an hour-long huddle with Trump’s lawyers and was joined by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee.
He said they talked about the case. He said he recommended that they point to the rhetoric used by the likes of Sen. Bernie Sanders and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and compare it to Trump’s speech on Jan. 6, when Trump said, "I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard."
Ted Cruz is exactly correct in his assessment of democrats' own definition of incitement.
If what President Trump said on January 6th is incitement, then democrats better get ready to be held to that same standard, because they've gone way beyond it...
Democrats like Joe Biden have even used that allegedly terrible phrase "fight like Hell."
Check out this article from the New York Post:
A 2019 Atlantic magazine interview featured Raskin saying of Trump’s presidency, “Let’s hope for the best, be prepared for the worst, and go fight like hell for the Constitution,” the Trump War Room tweeted.
And a 2017 article reposted on his own website shows Raskin saying, “We’ve got to wake up every day and fight like hell for liberal democracy, not just in Maryland, not just in the United States, but all over the world.”
The Trump War Room also resurfaced a pair of 2017 tweets in which House manager Ted Lieu (R-Calif.) put a violent spin on former first lady Michelle Obama’s famous credo, “When they go low, we go high.”
“I like that. But I like better, ‘when they go low, we fight back,'” Lieu said in one.
House manager Joe Neguse (D-Colo.) was also revealed to have tweeted in 2018 that he was “truly humbled to have the support of such a fearless leader as we fight to take back Congress” following his endorsement by then-Sen. Kamala Harris, who’s now vice president.
During Trump’s second impeachment trial, the House managers have repeatedly cited Trump’s use of “fight” and “fight like hell” while addressing his supporters shortly before their Jan. 6 riot at the US Capitol.
“President Trump used the word ‘fight’ or ‘fighting’ 20 times, including telling the crowd they needed to ‘fight like hell’ to save our democracy,” US Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.) said Wednesday afternoon.
Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee also tweeted a screengrab of then-candidate Biden discussing how his father walked upstairs to break the news that their family had to move from Pennsylvania to Delaware so he could make a living.
“That’s why I’ve spent my whole career fighting — and I will continue to fight — like hell so that no one ever has to make that walk again,” Biden tweeted in May.
Of course, democrat rhetoric has been far worse than that over the last few years...
