Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Senate Democrats this week as impeachment proceedings for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas have begun in Congress’ upper chamber.

Cruz made the remarks during the most recent episode of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson.

“Democrats [are] willing to throw the Constitution in the trash in order to avoid any national attention on the disaster that is playing out on our southern border,” Cruz said in speaking about the millions of illegal aliens that have come into the U.S. under President Joe Biden.

Cruz said that he believes that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is going to try to cover up the border crisis by trying to avoid having a trial in the Senate because “he doesn’t want the House managers to present any evidence.”

“Schumer and the Democrats are terrified of the evidence of the suffering of the people who’ve died, of the people of the children who’ve been sexually assaulted, of the women who’ve been sexually assaulted, of the fentanyl deaths and the drug overdose deaths,” Cruz said. “He doesn’t want that evidence put before the American people.”


Cruz continued, “Why does Chuck Schumer want to avoid a trial? Because he’s desperate to protect the Democrat senators on the ballot from the consequences from the deaths and suffering and people who are suffering misery, because of their open border politics and policies, which they intend to continue, and Schumer, this is all about political camouflage.”
