Sen. Ted Cruz pledged to the American people Thursday that Senate Republicans will “end the political farce” started by House Democrats and ultimately acquit President Trump of any wrongdoing.
“The partisan circus that we’ve seen in the House is over… We will then proceed to have a fair trial, to respect due process. Unlike the House, to give the President the opportunity to defend himself,” said Sen. Cruz.
“The House Articles don’t allege any criminal misconduct whatsoever… We will end this Constitutional circus, this political farce that started in the House. This is the beginning of the end of the abuse of the Constitution,” he added.
TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: This is the beginning of the end of the abuse of the Constitution. The Senate will provide a fair trial for @realDonaldTrump. #impeachment #ArticlesOfImpeachment #ImpeachmentTrial #senate #SenateImpeachmentTrial pic.twitter.com/Rp82D2igmN
