U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) predicted that Attorney General Merrick Garland is not far off from bringing criminal charges against former President Donald Trump.
Sen. Cruz, speaking on Fox News, referenced a “two-tiered system of justice” that targets enemies of the president through “political weapons” like the FBI and IRS.
“Mark my words: I believe Merrick Garland will indict Donald Trump. 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. He wants to indict him. I think the plan was to indict him over classified documents, and then he got the enormous problem that Joe Biden seemed to have classified documents everywhere including in the garage by his old Corvette. I don’t think Merrick Garland will indict Donald Trump over classified documents.
Here’s my prediction: he’ll indict Trump over quote ‘obstruction of justice’ for hiding the classified documents… He’s going to create a crime about a non-crime,” said Cruz.
Since the discovery of classified documents at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Attorney General Garland has fired off a flurry of subpoenas demanding the former president’s staff and associates testify about their involvement in removing documents from the White House during Trump’s final days in office. Previous reports have confirmed Sen. Cruz’s suspicion that a criminal indictment of the former president is forthcoming.
Charges of politicization within the Justice Department have haunted Garland since Republicans took control of Congress earlier this year. Later this month special counsel John Durham will testify about his report indicating that the FBI rushed to investigate President Trump over allegations that his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election. Whistleblowers have claimed that Garland personally intervened in the FBI’s investigation of Hunter Biden and his attempts to use his father and family name to illegally peddle influence in Washington.
