Ted Cruz: You Can Already See Democrats Pivoting Away From Mueller, They Want To Impeach No Matter What Report Says

Saturday on CNN's "State of the Union," Sen. Ted Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, warned that Democrats are going to move forward with the impeachment of President Trump no matter what the final Mueller report says: <blockquote>TED CRUZ: Listen, if anyone thinks that the Mueller report being concluded is the end of the Democrats' attempt to take down President Trump, they haven't been paying attention the last two years. It's striking, as I listened to <a href="https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/03/24/nadler_mueller_report_is_limited_to_crimes_job_of_congress_is_to_protect_institutions.html">your interview with Rep. Nadler</a>, that he was immediately pivoting away. Okay, fine. Yesterday, the Mueller report was the end all and be all. It was going to be the salvation for the Democrats and destroy President Trump. Now you can already see the Democrats pivoting away, saying, okay, we need to do other investigations. It's got to be someone else. The Southern District of New York, the New York Attorney General, it's got to be Congress... My point is you asked Congressman Nadler whether the House is going to impeach the president. I'll answer that for you. Yes. They fully intend to impeach the president and they don't care about the basis. Twice, Congressman Nadler said something remarkable. He said, listen, the special counsel is focused on crimes. We're not all that concerned with crimes. Our focus, this is Democrats in the House, is much broader than crimes. What they are basically saying is they are going to impeach the president for being Donald Trump. And they don't care about the evidence. They don't care about the substance. So every single presidential candidate ought to be asked now... We'll see what's in the report, and as a member of the Judiciary Committee, I'm going to read the report. I want to give it fair consideration. And I hope and expect the American people to have the chance to do the same thing. But my point is, the extreme left in the Democratic Party, they have so much anger and hatred directed at the president that we'll see the Democrats moving forward with impeachment whatever the evidence. That's why you're seeing Democrats like Congressman Nadler saying, "Don't worry about crimes. Our focus is not just crimes. Our focus is broader." What their focus is is politics and they need to set aside the rage and anger.</blockquote>
