Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday described House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to keep the articles of impeachment from the Senate’s gaze as “a sign of weakness” and “an admission of failure”.

“You can’t make this up,” Cruz told Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Listen, this is a sign of weakness. This is a sign she understands just how weak these articles are. These articles of impeachment that they actually voted on were really an admission of failure.”

Pelosi began talking about withholding the impeachment articles from the Senate within minutes of the House voting to impeach President Donald Trump.

Cruz noted that Pelosi might have suddenly realized that after promising so much misconduct from the impeachment inquiry, she has little to show for it.

“For months they had been promising all of this evidence of criminal activity. For months they had been talking about bribery, talking about quid pro quo. But then they heard all the evidence and they got no evidence of it. These articles don’t allege any crime,” Cruz said.
