Ted Cruz: Democrats Are ‘Willing To Burn The Justice System To The Ground’ To Stay In Power

 Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Democrats during an interview this week for being willing to destroy the U.S. justice system just so they can win elections and stay in power.

Cruz made the remarks during his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson while discussing last week’s guilty verdict that a Manhattan jury doled out in District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s criminal trial against former President Donald Trump.

“If you contrast America to banana republics, the difference is you have the rule of law,” he said. “The difference is you don’t do this. And these democrats, they hate Trump so much they don’t care. They’re willing to destroy it all, right. Let’s get to Alvin Bragg. Alvin Bragg, mind you, he is suddenly tough on crime. Yeah, this is a guy who, if you murder people, if you rape people, you walk down the street and you punch a little old lady in the face, Alvin Bragg will let you go.”

Cruz said that Bragg had a “political objective” that he wanted to achieve in court against Trump. “He’s trying to re-elect Joe Biden,” he said. “He’s trying to stay in power.”

Cruz also took issue with Democrat Judge Juan Merchan and the various instructions that he gave the jury.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has long made clear in order to convict someone of a crime, you must prove beyond a reasonable doubt every element of the crime and the jury must find unanimously that you are guilty, you have committed every element of the crime,” he said. “What the judge just said there is, ‘No, no number one, this unlawful means anything unlawful, like whatever, like what we’re not going to define it, but I’m gonna give you three, jurors choice, your pick.’ It’s like mix and match, choose your own adventure.”

Cruz said that he believes the conviction will get overturned on appeal, which he believes Democrats already know, but alleged that their plan was to tarnish Trump with a conviction to damage him politically.

“The purpose is what Alex Soros said, the purpose is what Joe Biden said. The purpose is all the Democrats, and all the media get to call him a felon over and over and over again, between now and Election Day, this is a five-month battle,” Cruz said. “It’s not a five-year battle, the purpose is not to put Donald Trump in jail. They know that’s not going to happen; they are trying to win. This is about keeping Joe Biden, the Democrats in power because it’s all they care about. And they’re willing to burn the justice system to the ground to keep the Democrats in power.”
