Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas urged the House to impeach President Joe Biden in light of allegations brought forth by two IRS whistleblowers.
Speaking on his podcast, Cruz highlighted the “stunning” extent of government corruption exposed by the whistleblowers' testimonies. Referring to the ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden's tax evasion and financial crimes, the senator contended that if the allegations proved true, they would justify Biden's impeachment.
Senator Ted Cruz emphasized that the allegations he presented were not mere partisan claims but were voiced by respected, long-serving IRS officials and investigators who were deeply disturbed by the revelations. Cruz outlined several allegations, including Hunter Biden's alleged evasion of $2.2 million in federal taxes and the alleged interference by Biden officials in obstructing investigations into his actions within the Department of Justice.
Cruz also highlighted a purported WhatsApp message from July 2017, where Hunter Biden allegedly threatened a Chinese business associate while asserting his father's support. In the message, he reportedly sought a resolution before the situation escalated. The senator's remarks underscored the gravity of the allegations and their potential implications.
In what Cruz deemed a “smoking gun” moment comparable to the notorious “Deep Throat” revelations during Watergate, he highlighted a message that reportedly read, “And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father,”
Cruz asserted that this message provided undeniable evidence of Joe Biden's abuse of power to benefit his son and potentially himself, with a supposed 10% share. Consequently, Cruz called for immediate impeachment proceedings against the president, emphasizing the need for the House of Representatives to take action.
If Merrick Garland really issued an order prohibiting further investigation into Hunter Biden's business dealings as the IRS whistleblower alleges, then I think there's real evidence that he's guilty of obstruction of justice.https://t.co/O1lXqhwNvZ

A Concerning Situation
Senator Cruz emphasized the gravity of the situation, asserting that accepting corrupt bribes from foreign nationals is unacceptable for any public office holder, be it as vice president or president. He argued that if someone were to profit millions of dollars from foreign nationals, they should face impeachment, prosecution, and imprisonment.
However, Cruz acknowledged the current lack of Democratic support for impeaching President Joe Biden, with the count at zero. Nevertheless, he believed that if the House could present a strong, fact-based case, it might be able to gather enough votes for impeachment.
To construct a compelling case based on facts, Cruz urged the House to thoroughly investigate the allegations made by the IRS officials, including the WhatsApp message. The whistleblowers claimed that they were hindered by members of Biden's Department of Justice from scrutinizing the authenticity of the message. Cruz highlighted the need for an investigation, stating that the truthfulness of the allegations remained uncertain due to the alleged prevention of inquiry.
Expressing his disappointment in his Democratic colleagues and Attorney General Merrick Garland, Cruz criticized their disregard for the rule of law. He lamented the absence of Democratic support for holding a hearing with Garland, where he could be questioned under oath regarding the WhatsApp message. Cruz emphasized that such a hearing would be warranted if any Democrat truly cared about upholding the rule of law.
