Sen. Cruz Shreds Democrats' 'Hatred-Fueled' Impeachment Trial: 'Doomed to Failure'
'Congressional Democrats... obsessed and consumed with hatred for President Trump'
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has shredded the Democrats for being "obsessed" with President Donald Trump.
Speaking Wednesday on Fox News's "America’s Newsroom," the Republican senator slammed the Senate impeachment trial for being fueled by the Democratic Party's "hatred."
Cruz said that the second impeachment trial of Trump is a "mistake" and "doomed to failure."
The 45th president was impeached on Jan. 13, one week after violent rioters stormed the Capitol as Congress was certifying the results of the 2020 election.
The Senate will continue the impeachment trial proceedings this afternoon.
Cruz predicted the second impeachment trial will not succeed and Trump will be acquitted.
Sen. Cruz noted that the trial is unconstitutional and being pushed by anti-Trump Democrats who are "obsessed and consumed with hatred for President Trump."
"Well, I think we'll see the trial continue for the rest of the week," he said.
"It is reminiscent of Shakespeare that it is full of sound and fury and yet signifying nothing.
"I think are you going to see a lot of partisan table pounding.
"You’re going to see a lot of effort to pull on emotion.
"We saw the beginning of that with the Hollywood video that the House managers began with.
"I think we'll see a lot more of that today and tomorrow."
"At the end of the day, it is not going to succeed," the Texas senator stated.
"President Trump is going to be acquitted.
"In order to convict him, it takes 67 votes. There are not 67 votes.
"Every senator knows that, the House managers know that.
"Everybody knows that," Cruz said.
"But they are going through political theater and they’re going through political theater because for four years congressional Democrats, they have been obsessed and consumed with hatred for President Trump.
"It really defines who the Democratic Party is ..."
"They have a new Democratic president, a Democratic House, a Democratic Senate," Cruz continued.
"Instead of working on the very real problems we have in this country; we have tens of millions of Americans out of work, we have millions of kids who are not going to school, and yet the Democrats aren't trying to fix those problems.
"Instead, they want to go through a circus of an impeachment trial that they know is doomed to failure.
"I think it's a mistake but unfortunately, it's the path that the congressional Democrats have put us on," Cruz concluded.
