Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says Republicans could seek Joe Biden's impeachment

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has warned that Republicans could pursue the impeachment of Democrat Joe Biden once the GOP takes back control of the House after the 2022 midterms.

The Texas senator discussed options for the GOP-led House during the latest episode of his podcast “The Verdict.”

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

In the likely event that the GOP wins back the majority in the House of Representatives after this year's elections, Cruz said Republicans could return the favor.

"I do think there is a chance of that,” he said.

"Whether it’s justified or not … the Democrats weaponized impeachment."

"They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him," Cruz continued.

"And one of the real disadvantages of doing that … is the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel.

"You know what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

"I said at the time when we had a Democratic president and a Republican House, you can expect an impeachment proceeding.

"That’s not how impeachment is meant to work, but I think the Democrats crossed that line.”

"I think there will be enormous pressure on a Republican House to begin impeachment proceedings,” Cruz continued.

"I think there are potentially multiple grounds to consider for impeachment. Probably the most compelling is the utter lawlessness is President Biden’s refusal to enforce the border — his decision to just deify immigration laws and allow 2 million people to come in here unimpeded in direct contravention of his obligation under Article 2 of the Constitution to take care that the laws be faithfully executed. 

"That’s probably the strongest grounds right now for impeachment, but there may be others.”

"And because Democrats decided this is just another tool in the partisan war chest, I think there is a real risk that turnabout will be fair play,” he added.
