Senator Ted Cruz Has Explosive Question for Nancy Pelosi on Trump’s Impeachment

    Senator Ted Cruz is showing the House Democrats that the gloves will come off if they press their case that witnesses should be called for the Trump impeachment trial.

    “If the House Managers call Rep Herrera Beutler as a witness, the first witness Trump’s lawyers should call is Nancy Pelosi. Several Qs she should answer: What did you know about threats to the Capitol? When? Did you turn down national guard because of “optics”?” he tweeted.

    Speaker Pelosi was recently called out in a letter from the former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who she forced to resign.

    Cruz added another name to the list: D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

    As pointed out at Becker News earlier, a vast shadow cabal of radical organizations, big labor and corporations had seeded the “incitement” narrative last March, according to a bombshell Time article.

    So, what did Pelosi know and when did she know it? Seems like a pivotal question to ask, given the nature of the House Democrat impeachment managers’ ‘incitement’ narrative.

    Earlier, Senator Ted Cruz revealed behind-the-scenes revelations about Chuck Schumer being “blindsided” at the fifth day of the impeachment trial.

    “Chaos at the impeachment trial. Dems had agreed to know witnesses, then House Managers changed their mind this morning. Schumer blindsided. Pandemonium. They’re negotiating now to figure out next steps,” he said.

    “While we’re waiting to figure out what’s next, I thought I’d share some of the Qs in the pile that DIDN’T make the cut to be asked yesterday. (These are all real, from various senators, who will remain anonymous.),” he averred.

    3/x Q1: “Where’s the short, fat guy?” he added.

    “Can we build the Keystone Pipeline if we add Hunter Biden to the board?” he continued.

    5/x Q3: “To Manager Swalwell: Tell us about Fang Fang.”


    The Trump impeachment trial was running two days ahead of schedule, and could, conceivably, be over on Saturday if the senators so chose. The optimism for a speedy trial seems to be all but over.

    Chad Pergram provides a bit more: Cruz believes 53 to 57 senators may be poised to convict, slightly higher than before this morning’s session.

    It would be hard to see that number hold after Pelosi’s assuredly disastrous testimony.
