Texas Senator Ted Cruz stopped by Monday night’s Hannity to make a prediction about Merrick Garland and former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump.
“Mark my words: I believe Merrick Garland will indict Donald Trump,” Cruz said during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. “He wants to indict Donald Trump because he hates Donald Trump. He hates him. He’s angry. Merrick Garland is angry that he wasn’t confirmed to the Supreme Court.”
From The Daily Wire:
Attorneys for Trump visited the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Monday as special counsel Jack Smith reportedly nears a charging decision on the storage of classified records and obstruction of justice by resisting the government’s efforts to retrieve the materials. Trump denies wrongdoing, claiming he declassified documents in his possession before leaving office and had a right to take them.
Cruz reasoned that Garland’s DOJ would focus on pursuing trumped-up obstruction charges because investigators found other top executives, including President Joe Biden and former Vice President Mike Pence, improperly had classified documents in their possession after leaving office.
“Mind you, he’s not saying the underlying classified documents were a crime because he’d have to indict Joe Biden too,” Cruz said. “He’s going to instead create a crime about a noncrime. That’s going to be the basis of the indictment.”
“He will do it on purely personal matters,” Cruz said of Garland, “dealing with drugs and guns and tax issues for Hunter that have nothing to do with Joe Biden because this DOJ wants to protect and insulate Joe Biden and the Biden family’s corruption and they want to use Hunter Biden as a scapegoat to justify targeting Donald Trump.”
