The trouble by Cruz and different Senators is a bid to overturn the election. It’s a coup try, and it shouldn’t be known as anything.
Ted Cruz is just not main this sham coup try as a result of he desires to maintain Trump in workplace. Saturday’s assertion must be seen because the launch of Sen. Cruz’s 2024 marketing campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Cruz and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) are each going to run for president, and they’re utilizing the destruction of democracy because the platform to launch their campaigns.
The ten-day audit won’t ever occur. Neither will the particular legislative session. The inform is that the Senators are saying that they are going to certify the vote if these situations are agreed to, however as soon as the vote is licensed, the election is over, so something that occurs after that time is irrelevant.
Republicans at the moment are the anti-democracy occasion, and Ted Cruz is making an attempt to get to the White Home by trashing the Structure.
