Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has called for the impeachment of President Joe Biden following the release of an unclassified FD 1023 document that Republicans in Congress say revealed a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Biden and a foreign national.
The alleged scheme involved the exchange of money for a policy decision, which Cruz, like many others, considers to be a high crime and misdemeanor.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Senator Cruz stated, “Bribery is explicitly noted in the constitution, and the evidence against Hunter Biden and Joe Biden being complicit and profiting from this corruption is growing and growing every week.”

Just yesterday, an unclassified whistleblower disclosure received by the United States Congress claimed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation possessed a record linking Biden to the criminal bribery scheme. In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, the whistleblower documents describe the alleged scheme in detail, including the exchange of money for policy decisions.
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Representative James Comer (R-KY) said in a joint statement that “The DOJ and the FBI appear to have valuable, verifiable information that you have failed to disclose to the American people.”
“Therefore, Congress will proceed to conduct an independent and objective review of this matter, free from those agencies’ influence,” the statement continued.
Cruz’s call for the impeachment of President Biden is likely to draw strong reactions, however, he is not the only one who feels this way.
On Wednesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene also called for Biden’s impeachment, saying “We will be proving that Joe Biden must be impeached.”
The Biden family has been a mess as of late. Joe’s son, Hunter, has also been at the center of controversy. Cruz further added in his interview that the evidence against Hunter is likely to result in an indictment by the Biden Department of Justice.
However, he believes that if they focus solely on individual crimes to Hunter and fail to address the public concern of the connection to Joe Biden, it would be a clear indication that the Biden Department of Justice is trying to protect the President.
On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that prosecutors are nearing a decision on whether to charge Hunter Biden with tax fraud and firearms-related offenses, marking the end of a four-year investigation. Hunter’s legal team recently met with officials from the DOJ, including lawyers from the tax division and the US Attorney’s office in Delaware, where the investigation has been based.
In addition to discussing the Biden corruption scandal, Senator Cruz also addressed the ongoing crisis at the southern border.
He condemned the Biden administration’s open borders policies, which he believes have led to the worst crisis in history.
Cruz blamed the Biden administration for allowing the illegal immigrant to remain in the country and criticized the Democrats for blocking legislation that would have prevented such incidents from happening. He believes that the Democrats’ open borders policies will only lead to more death and suffering.
On Tuesday Biden announced that 1,500 U.S. troops will be sent to the southern border for 90 days to provide administrative and transport support for law enforcement and Border Patrol personnel. This came just one day after White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted that the border was secure.
