Ted Cruz Calls Hunter Biden Special Counsel Appointment ‘camouflage’; Cruz: Joe Biden Should ‘Share a Cell With Hunter’ If Found Guilty of Bribery

Ted Cruz calls Hunter Biden special counsel appointment ‘camouflage’:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Sunday he thinks the appointment of special counsel David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware, in the Hunter Biden investigation is “camouflage” and a “cover-up.”
“This appointment is camouflage, and it’s cover-up. I think it’s disgraceful,” Cruz said in an interview with Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo on her show “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Listen, David Weiss was the U.S. attorney hand-picked to lead this investigation, who spent the last five years covering it up. David Weiss, who was personally selected by the two Democrat senators from Delaware, Sens. Tom Carper and Chris Coons.”
Attorney General Merrick Garland announced last week he will be appointing Weiss as special counsel to oversee the investigation into the alleged tax and gun crimes of President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden. The appointment came as a pending plea deal for the president’s son appeared to be falling apart.
“The investigation [into Hunter Biden] has gone nowhere, other than to protect Hunter Biden and Joe Biden,” Cruz said.
Cruz is among numerous Republicans who have criticized the appointment, pointing to claims from two IRS whistleblowers that Weiss was blocked from seeking special counsel status, which both Weiss and the Department of Justice have repeatedly denied.
“They [two IRS whistleblowers] said they’d never seen an investigation like this in their time in law enforcement,” Cruz said, citing the whistleblowers’ claims that Weiss “protected the Biden family.” --->READ MORE HERE
Ted Cruz: Joe Biden Should ‘Share a Cell With Hunter’ If Found Guilty of Bribery:
If House Oversight Committee can prove Biden received millions of dollars in exchange for firing Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma, then he should be impeached and then prosecuted, says Texas senator.
“The essence of a bribery is a quid pro quo. We remember from the first Trump impeachment. The media, Jake knows what a quid pro quo is. He talked about it incessantly when it concerned Donald Trump,” Cruz said on Fox News Channel’s Hannity while explaining how CNN’s Jack Tapper downplayed the payments made to the Bidens as “sort of influence peddling.”
“Quid pro quo is Latin for ‘this for that.’ Bribery is paying someone something of value in an exchange for an official favor,” Cruz continued. “Now, the quo we know happened because as you noted, Joe Biden has confessed to it in a video interview where he said he went to Ukraine. He held hostage a billion dollars in U.S. loan guarantees and demanded that the Ukrainian government fire the prosecutor that is investigating Burisma and investigating the oligarch.”
“We know the quo happened. The only question was, did the quid happen? Did they pay $10 million for him to do so? If so, Joe Biden is guilty of bribery,” Cruz said. “Hunter is guilty of selling bribes, selling official favors from his father. And if that is the case, Joe Biden should be impeached. He should be removed from office. He should be prosecuted, and he should go to prison, and he should share a cell with Hunter for corrupting the government of the United States.” --->WATCH THE INTERVIEW HERE
