Ted Cruz: There Are ‘Multiple Grounds’ to Impeach Biden If GOP Wins House in 2022

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said there are “multiple grounds” to impeach President Joe Biden if the GOP flips the House in the 2022 midterm elections.

“If we take the House, which I said is overwhelmingly likely, then I think we will see serious investigations of the Biden administration,” Cruz said during a recent episode of his podcast Verdict with Ted Cruz.

When asked about the prospect of impeaching Biden, Cruz said, “I do think there’s a chance of that.”

“Whether it’s justified or not, Democrats weaponized impeachment.”

“They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him. 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,” Cruz added.

Cruz said Biden’s “utter lawlessness” with the ongoing border crisis and decision to “defy immigration laws” would be one potential reason to begin impeachment proceedings.

The 51-year-old senator said Republicans have a 90% chance of regaining the House.

“What’s interesting is, in Washington, everybody assumes Republicans are ​going to win,” Cruz said. “I think all the Democrats assume we’re ​going to take the House​. I​t’s almost baked into the cake of how everyone handles decision-making.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded to Cruz’s remarks on Tuesday.

“Maybe Senator Cruz can work with us on getting something done on comprehensive immigration reform and putting in place measures that will help make sure smart security is what we see at the border, taking a more humane approach to the border instead of name calling, accusation-calling and making predictions of the future,” Psaki said.

Texas migrant numbers ‘out of control’

In Del Rio, Texas, the number of migrants waiting under the International Bridge doubled to over 8,000 in a single day. Border Patrol is overwhelmed by the “out of control” situation, sources confirm.

Video footage shows the staggering number of people waiting under the bridge. On Wednesday, the number totaled around 4,000, but it spiked to over 8,200 by Thursday morning.

According to law enforcement, the majority of the migrants are Haitian, and more are arriving by the minute.

The situation marks the latest in a series of border pandemonium during the Biden administration. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said over 208,000 migrant encounters occurred in August, marking a 317% increase from August 2020.

The White House previously assigned blame to the Trump administration for limiting legal pathways to asylum. Meanwhile, the GOP blames the Biden administration’s rollback of Trump-era immigration policies.

Desperately seeking Kamala: the absentee VP

Vice President Kamala Harris has been conspicuous by her absence lately, as President Biden faces mounting pressure over the botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the ongoing border crisis.

“If I’m Kamala Harris right now, I’m extremely offended because you have been used,” co-host of “The Five,” Will Cain, said. “They used you to pander to a voting base to get votes. They had a minority, they had a woman, and now that they don’t need her, they have shelved her because her approval rating is -19.”

The VP has not been easy to find. She took recent trips to Vietnam and Singapore amid the chaos in Afghanistan. Then, she appeared in Hawaii to visit Pearl Harbor. Press was barred from the event.

Some speculate that Harris is being kept out of sight by design. Her recent poll numbers show a 35% approval and a 54% disapproval, atypical for a VP this early in the administration’s run.

Harris has a hard time finding support, even among her supporters.

“I’d vote for her. But I don’t think she can win. And I wouldn’t vote for her in a primary,” Pennsylvania retiree Susan Giffen told the Los Angeles Times.
