Cruz made the statement on “ Sunday Morning Futures” including, “This is a sign she [Pelosi] understands simply how weak these articles are. These posts of impeachment that they in fact voted on were truly an admission of failure.”
” For months, they [Democrats] had been guaranteeing all of this proof of criminal activity. For months, they ‘d be talking about bribery, they ‘d be speaking about quid pro quo,” he said. “However then they heard all the evidence and they got no proof of it and these posts don’t allege any criminal activity.”
” This is the very first time in the history of our nation that a president has been impeached without a single post declaring any criminal conduct,” Cruz informed host Maria Bartiromo “They [Democrats] don’t declare any crime, they do not even allege any federal law that was violated. This was at completion of the day a political response due to the fact that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats hate the president.”
On Sunday, Cruz also attended to Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz’s findings from his nearly two-year evaluation worrying the origins of the Russia investigation and the issuance of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants for a Trump campaign official.
Despite the inspector general’s finding that there was no evidence of political predisposition or improper inspiration, Horowitz’s report revealed there were at least 17 “considerable inaccuracies and omissions” in the former Trump project adviser Carter Page FISA applications.
Cruz informed Bartiromo what he believed was “the most sensational example the inspector general exposed.”
” A senior attorney at the FBI fabricated evidence,” Cruz stated, describing what had actually occurred.
Horowitz has actually discovered evidence that an FBI lawyer manipulated a key investigative file associated to the FBI’s deceptive security of Page– enough to change the substantive significance of the file.
” That is on its face, criminal conduct,” Cruz told Bartiromo. “If you or I did it in a car wreck case, if you’ve got a cars and truck wreck and you remained in court and you doctored fraudulent files and submitted it to the court, you or I would serve jail time for that.”
” That’s senior leadership at the FBI. That’s how severely they wanted to spy on Donald Trump and get Donald Trump,” Cruz continued. “It is a scary abuse of power.”
