On Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, suggested that it is likely that Republicans will win back the House in 2022, and expressed that if they do, they will probably consider impeaching President Biden.

Cruz, along with Michael Knowles and Liz Wheeler, discussed former President Donald Trump's impeachment and the future of Biden's presidency during the show Verdict with Ted Cruz, on December 31, 2021.

Cruz appeared on the podcast and asserted that Democrats "weaponized impeachment" during the Trump Administration for partisan purposes.

Knowles joked that he expects the Democrats to attempt to impeach Trump again and went as far as to say even if he died the Democrats would find a way to impeach him.

He then asked Cruz whether a Republican House of Representatives would ever impeach Biden. Cruz said he believed there was a chance it could happen and argued the Democrats had "crossed the line" with the attempted impeachments of Trump. He added that if the Republicans took back the House of Representatives, impeachment could follow against Biden in 2022.

Cruz said: "I do think there is a chance of that, whether it is justified or not, as we talked about when Verdict launched, the Democrats weaponized impeachment. "They used it for partisan purposes to go after Trump because they disagreed with him.

"One of the real disadvantages of doing that is the more you weaponize it and turn it into a partisan cudgel, you know what’s good for the goose is good for the gander," he stated. "I said at the time, when we have a Democratic president and a Republican House, you can expect an impeachment proceeding, that is not how impeachment is meant to work. "But I think the Democrats crossed that line."

Last September, four House Republicans filed impeachment articles against Biden over his handling of the southern border and the catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan.

"I filed articles of impeachment against @POTUS based on what I believe to be clear violations of his duties," Rep. Bob Gibbs of Ohio posted on Twitter after filing the impeachment articles. "There are dynamics in Congress preventing this from being debated. But I could not stand by while Biden commits flagrant & deliberate violations of his oath of office." Republicans accused Democrats of turning to impeachment to hamstring the Trump Administration.

Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host, wrote that Democrats "need to keep Donald Trump at the center of the conversation. They're impeaching him so they can continue to give speeches about him. It's that simple."
