On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News’s “Hannity,” and told host Sean Hannity that Joe Biden may be in very hot water should recent accusations of him engaging in corrupt behavior turn out to be true.
After Hannity asked Cruz if information from the DOJ and FBI potentially implicating then-Vice President Biden in dealing with a “foreign national” could be considered “a high crime and misdemeanor,” Cruz confidently replied, “it absolutely would.” He also noted that bribery is “explicitly noted in the Constitution” in the context of impeaching a United States President.

As was reported earlier this week, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. James Comer (R-KY) issued a release commanding the FBI to hand over “an unclassified record alleging a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a foreign national.” The two Republican lawmakers said the file is an “FBI-generated FD-1023 form” that “allegedly details an arrangement involving an exchange of money for policy decisions.”

Cruz added, “I gotta say, the evidence, not only against Hunter Biden, but the evidence against Joe Biden being complicit and profiting from this corruption is growing, and growing, and growing.” He also promoted his podcast, “The Verdict,” which he says featured a talk on “the detailed evidence that’s growing.”
“[I]f they indict [Hunter] just for the gun crime, or just for a tax crime, they’re going to try to explain it as ‘he’s a troubled soul, he’s got substance abuse issues, but look how fair we are, and now we can go target Donald Trump,'” The Texas Senator opined on Hannity’s show, suggesting that this is the true plan of the Biden Department of Justice.
While Cruz’s grand claims that the allegations against Biden could amount to a prosecutable criminal offense may be true, it remains to be seen if charges would ever actually be pushed.
In the past, Cruz reportedly argued that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton violated federal law after she wiped a large grouping of emails, many of which were said to be used on a private server.
It goes without saying that Clinton has never been convicted for such a crime, nor even charged.
Cruz has similarly gone after big tech CEOs over their censorship of speech. Few, if any penalties were ever doled out to those individuals.
