The two U.S. Senators from Texas aren’t enthusiastic about the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump. Senator Ted Cruz told reporters on Capitol Hill last week that the trial is a “vindictive and punitive” measure.
Senator John Cornyn dislikes the precedent the trial may set, arguing that it may prompt Republicans to impeach former Democratic presidents in the future. Cruz and Cornyn are both Republicans who have survived Democratic attempts to replace them in recent elections.
