Beto: Ted Cruz Is ‘Responsible’ for the ‘Coup Attempt’ and the ‘Deaths of Police Officers’

‘If Ted Cruz is expelled, not forced to resign, then what you have done is you have set the precedent’
By Grabien Staff


O’ROURKE: “It tells me that unless we hold those responsible accountable for what they did and yes, that means Donald Trump. But it also means the junior senator from the state of Texas who I understand is vacationing in Cancun right now, when people are literally freeze to go death in the state that he was elected to represent and serve, when Ted Cruz helps to incite that sedition, seeks to overturn a lawfully legitimately democratically decided election, he is just as culpable for the insurrection, the coup attempt, the deaths, including of Capitol police officers who were trying to defend his life and the lives of others who serve in our Capitol. If these folks are not held accountable, Ted Cruz is not expelled, he's not forced to resign, then what you have done is you have set the precedent that it is OK to try to overturn an election, to try to overturn our government. And the proudest democracy on the face of the planet will become a memory if we do not fight for it right now. So we should take no comfort in the fact that Joe Biden was successfully scorn in. No comfort in the fact that Congress seems to be operating as normal. This thing is on a roll right now. And if you -- if you look at the Beer Hall Putsch in Germany, 1923, it was 10 years later that Hitler is chancellor. We are operating under the big lie right now in America. We’ve got to stop it. That is up to all of us in this great democracy.”
