Sen. Ted Cruz had a message for Democrats who want him tried for treason for seeking an emergency election audit: “Calm down.”
The Texas Republican came under fire after announcing Saturday that he and 10 GOP senators will vote to dispute the 2020 Electoral College certification on Jan. 6 unless Congress appoints an Electoral Commission to conduct a 10-day audit of fraud allegations in disputed states.
“Well, listen, I think everyone needs to calm down. I think we need to tone down the rhetoric,” Mr. Cruz said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.” “This is already a volatile situation. It’s like a tinderbox and throwing lit matches into it.”
He said that “yesterday, when I released my statement with 10 other senators, I had multiple, multiple Democrats urging that I should be arrested and tried for the crimes of sedition and treason.”
So the Democrat media line is that challenging the election result is unprecedented, seditious even. Why, certainly Democrats would never do such a thing! Oh, wait:
