Sen. Ted Cruz might have been the last Republican standing in Donald Trump’s way for in the nomination fight of 2016, but he’s one of his top defenders now.
And the Texan’s legal talents were on display Thursday as he took to “Fox & Friends” to mock House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s sudden reluctance to send articles of impeachment the House passed against President Donald Trump on to the Senate for trial.
Pelosi, Cruz said, know she’s playing with a losing hand.
And her only way out now is to bluff, holding up the articles of impeachment until she gains some as-yet-undetermined concessions from Senate Republicans on how an impeachment trial would be conducted.
For Cruz, the bluff was empty.
