Sunday Talks: Senator Ted Cruz Discusses Upcoming Week of Impeachment…

Texas Senator Ted Cruz appears on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo for a lengthy discussion of the upcoming senate impeachment trial.  Senator Cruz does not currently support subpoenas for witnesses; however, if the full senate votes to call prosecution witnesses Cruz would support reciprocal witnesses for President Trump.

Senator Cruz walks through the anticipated process including the “scheduling order” or senate rules within the impeachment process.  Twelve hours of prosecution, twelve hours of defense, sixteen hours of senator questioning, and then possibly a vote.

    40 hours total of work put in by the Senate?
    That could take months.

      Good news for POTUS. Without a prosecutor who can build a compelling case, they will be posturing and bloviating. And with 12 hour days they will be mind numbingly confused and bored. A strong motivator to focus on a flawed process, kangaroo court, no crime, and no direct witnesses except for sonland. The burden of proof was not met will be a buzz word. They can blame it all on the house for a bungled slapdash case.

        Yes, they will need a long vaca, BUT;
        Not ONE of the Senators will vote to actually Recess the Senate, EVEN as they obviously do go on recess.

          So agree. Since Inauguration Day the Uniparty Senate would not permit the duly elected POTUS to staff his administration.

          2020 by mid November will require resignation letter from the entire GS 14 and above to restaff the Swamp.

      I don’t know what all the hubbub is about. (Senator’s) why not just adopt the impeachment rules used by the house? First get every witness transcript from the house star chamber too expose any lies there in.

      (I would never have Ted handle my negotiations he’s horrible). Then just like the house hold 22 secret “interviews” with no democrats questioning, then select the 12 you like best (just like the house) and then bring them forwards.

      After that, we’ll debate additional witnesses, of course based on reciprocity.

          I’d prefer Senator Cruz to be more demagogic and use his debate skills he’s supposed to have. He was quiet in his Senate bid and almost lost to nitwit Faux latino, Beto, because he campaigned like it was an entitlement. The Democrats deserve and need to be bludgeoned. Cruz is supposed to have the verbal and intellectual skills to win a demogogic debate and salt the earth with these marxist revolutionaries. Start doing that Ted. Fight for the Constitution you and we hold so dear.

You have to overlook massive lies by Trump and come up with a pathetic truth Cruz told to keep your story alive. Whatever occurred then, which was a very fine campaign by Cruz, Cruz has done nothing but support Trump since, and yet this garbage keeps being spouted. I sincerely wish you people had more Senators like John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell since since you whine and moan about the few who do make strong cases for Trump.

And I am definitely accurate about the incredible animus toward Ted Cruz that still exists today among many Trump supporters (not Trump) despite Cruz being extremely supportive of Trump, way beyond what any other person would do who accused their father of being an assassin.

                • I will clarify my position and then agree to disagree with your assessment of Ted Cruz’s probity.
                  My opinion is quite different than yours. I remember quite clearly the Republican convention performance and the many gratuitous attacks and insults by Cruz toward President Trump thereafter. I remember a man who did not tell his constituents he was a Canadian citizen and falsely reported a Goldman Sachs loans in the Senate race to convey a false impression about his personal risk, claiming he had liquidated his entire worth to run for Senate.
                  Your telling exaggerates the Raphael Cruz comments by Trump which centered around the passing out of Pro Castro leaflets. Investigative reporter Wayne Madsen first reported April 7 evidence strongly suggesting that Rafael Cruz was the mystery man photographed handing out literature on Aug. 16, 1963 in New Orleans. It was more a matter of the crowd Cruz Sr had been involved with than suggesting he had helped Oswald.

        Nah I don’t think so. Look at all the hype to get things this far. This will not be repeated as their voters will have dire case of fatigue. They may try once more but sometime after 2020. That is the whole point of Parnas and why they held it back. After McConnell puts this sham in the trash where it belongs the left will come off as good intentioned in the eyes of their voter. They will whine and scream that Republicans are partisan and are covering for Trump as they refused to let the upstanding citizen Parnas speak. Blah blah blah…..you get it

    Sen. Cruz was very articulate. Good that he laid out clearly what schedule of events to expect. Furthermore he provided the logic behind the procedure for deciding whether witnesses will be called. The reasons for not simply dismissing impeachment charges made sense—the President deserves to defend himself after the House denied him the opportunity to do so.

    The second part, re: tech company interference in the election, remains a threatening if murky subject. How search engine results were translated into changed number of votes is a mystery, but I confess I’ve not seen the published studies. Nonetheless, we know social media “platforms” have been censoring conservative (or rather, Trump-supporting) writers for quite a long time. Seems to me it’s just part of the media in general trying to influence voters. The success of that effort is debatable, I don’t see how Google’s distortions are really any different.

    On the whole Cruz was informative but not saying much we didn’t already know from other sources. That’s OK, at least it was put in a very coherent and useful format for the audience he was reaching.

    Maybe I missed something but I didn’t hear Cruz say he didn’t support subpoenas for witnesses. Seems this would disadvantage the defense because the whistle blower, Adam Schiff, the Bidens, et al would not testify willingly.

  10. The campaign is over and even our President Trump has forgiven and forgotten (well maybe not forgotten). At this point we need all the help we can get. Look at Mark Levin. Former Cruz supporter and almost Never Trumper. Now one of our President’s most eloquent supporters.

    Two most important takeaways from Cruz’s interview in my estimation:

    1. President must be ACQUITTED, case must not be dismissed.
    2. Big Tech Google can manipulated 15 MILLION VOTES in 2020.

    Let’s stop fighting among ourselves all the time. This is how the Demon Rats win. It’s the only thing they’ve got. And many on our side continue to fall into the trap.

    • I’m always happy to live & let live with Cruz. I find the comments that whitewash him more problematic. If he continues working to MAGA and even takes a stand once and a while that helps the Nation but is not in his own best interest he can rehabilitate himself. He’s not there yet but we have so many who are worse.
      We cannot afford to alienate or marginalize any voices that are raised in support for President Trump & America’s agenda.
