Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz warned that, in the face of a possible Republican victory in the 2022 midterm elections, it would not be strange to propose an impeachment trial against President Joe Biden just as the Democrats did with Trump. According to the senator, reasons abound to carry it out.

During the latest episode of “The Verdict” podcast, Cruz discussed the possible situation that could occur in mid-2022 if Republicans manage to regain the majority in the House of Representatives if they win the midterm elections.

Under the leadership of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Cruz recalled that Democrats had chosen to “weaponize” the impeachment process against President Donald Trump.

When the senator was asked if he considered the possibility of a Republican-dominated House impeaching Biden possible, considering that Democrats had twice impeached President Donald Trump, Cruz replied:

“Yes, I think there’s a possibility of that,” Cruz said. “And whether it’s warranted or not, as we talked about when the program was launched, the Democrats used impeachment as a weapon. They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him.”

Cruz stressed that he is not in favor of that way of using impeachment, as it is not good for democracy to use a legal tool as a partisan weapon. It is not the purpose for which it was created, the senator added.

However, the misuse carried out by the Democrats by prosecuting former President Trump twice without serious justification, could lead the Republicans to be pressured to take the same measure in case of recovering the House, especially considering that in the case of Biden there are serious reasons to carry it out, according to Cruz.

In the podcast interview, Cruz argued that there are “potentially multiple grounds to consider” to impeach Biden, starting with “the total lawlessness” of his “refusal to enforce the border,” referring to the 2 million illegal immigrants who entered the United States, motivated by the immigration policies implemented by the Biden administration. 

In September, a group of House Republicans filed a series of articles of impeachment against Biden for his handling of the immigration crisis and the chaotic U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

The Democratic-led House first indicted then-President Donald Trump in December 2019 for allegedly abusing his office and obstructing Congress over his attempts to withhold military aid to Ukraine and press his administration to investigate Biden.

The Senate acquitted Trump due to the fact that no Republicans voted against the president.

After the failed attempt, Democrats indicted Trump again in January 2021 arguing an alleged case of inciting insurrection after a group of violent people forced their way into the Capitol.

Trump was again acquitted by the Senate, although this time 10 Republicans joined the Democrats in their intentions to blame him.
