Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Monday that “additional witnesses are not necessary” for the ongoing impeachment trial — even in light of the supposed revelations from President Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton in a leaked manuscript of his upcoming book.
Cruz dismissed the Democrats’ claims that Trump explicitly linked a hold on military aid for Ukraine to an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden — and instead insisted that the Senate call Hunter Biden to testify.
Of course, Trump’s impeachment trial defense team proved beyond any doubt that President Trump made it publicly known that he was worried about corruption in Ukraine as far back as 2017
As Ted Cruz was criticizing the Democrats for arguing that President Donald Trump had only sought to investigate corruption in Ukraine in order to damage his 2020 political rival Joe Biden.
Ted Cruz went ‘Beastmode’ on reporters after being asked a pointed question that involved his two daughters
Reporters not wanting to hear the truth repeatedly tried cutting the Senator off.
One reporter went so far as to claim ‘Over the two hours the Presidents lawyers never mentioned any crime by Hunter Biden.’
Of course, that reporter must have forgotten that the Democrats also didn’t point to one crime that President Trump supposedly committed in their Articles of Impeachment?
But where things did get heated was this same reporter while asking his question pivoted into lecturing Sen. Cruz saying:
“Basically what they are saying is Hunter Biden got a job when his father was Vice-President so if that’s a crime, I mean shouldn’t half your children be in prison?”
Cruz responded, “My children are 9 and 11 so I’m sorry you want to throw a 9-year-old in prison,”
“But at this point, my third grader plays basketball and softball at her school, so stop playing the nasty Washington game!” he added.
“I’m sorry, it’s not a nasty Washington game,” the reporter objected.
Mainstream media reporters seem to have completely forgotten that over the past few months Democrats have repeatedly claimed that there was nothing nefarious about an unqualified Hunter Biden becoming a Burisma board member and being paid millions of dollars while his dear old dad was the Vice President of the United States.
Democrats took it even further claiming that the whole Biden claim was nothing more than a deceitful accusation by President Trump based on a ridiculous conspiracy theory he created.
But that was the point of Trump’s lawyers spending two hours showing Hunter Biden’s sweetheart deals in Ukraine and China did not pass the smell test.
Trump’s lawyers didn’t need to prove that Hunter Biden committed a crime, they just needed to show that an investigation was justified based on the appearance of corruption being plausible.
In just two hours Pam Bondi and Eric Herschmann showed more evidence of Hunter and Joe Biden’s wrongdoing that the Democrats did against President Trump in 21.
