"A group of seven Democrat senators filed an ethics complaint against Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley Thursday. They sent a letter to the incoming Senate Ethics panel Chair Chris Coons and Vice-Chair James Lankford Thursday requesting an investigation into several issues. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took the lead in the letter."

Besides Whitehouse, Senators Tim Kaine, Ron Wyden, Tina Smith, Richard Blumenthal, Mazie Hirono, and Sherrod Brown signed the letter.

Senator Coons is one of the Democrat senators who has already called upon Cruz and Hawley to resign. Coons is a loyal Biden supporter and served as a Biden campaign surrogate.

"The senators request that the ethics panel investigate whether or not Cruz and Hawley incited violence on Jan. 6 at the Capitol. They want to know if Cruz and Hawley “coordinated with organizers of the pro-Trump rally immediately before the riot; whether they received donations from any organizations or donors that also funded the rally; and whether the senators “engaged in criminal conduct or unethical or improper behavior.”



The letter's - and thus the Democrats - main intent was to question the 2 Republicans' loyalty to President Trump over loyalty to the nation:

“The question the Senate must answer is not whether Sens. Hawley and Cruz had the right to the object to the electors, but whether the senators failed to ‘[p]ut loyalty to the highest moral principles and to country above loyalty to persons, party, or Government department’ or engaged in ‘improper conduct reflecting on the Senate’ in connection with the violence on January 6.”



The fact that United States Senators would take such action and ask such a question exposes both their own partisan hatred and desire for revenge as well as their ignorance of their own US Senate's history.

Just before the violence broke out at the US Capitol on 6 January, Senator Ted Cruz was calling for - in an attempt to avoid further division and prevent future violence in the US - the US Senate / Congress to call for a 15-member team, comprised of 5 Democrats, 5 Republicans, and 5 USSC Justices to conduct a 10-Day official investigation into the top, major election fraud claims and report back at the end of the 10 days to Congress regarding what they found.

Cruz explained he was NOT calling for the election results to be 'voided' but merely held until the end of the 10-day investigation, This effort, Cruz explained, would demonstrate to the American people - especially Trump supporters - that the ENTIRE US government had heard their concerns and was taking them seriously by conducting an official investigation.

At the end of the 10 days, if declarations by the Democrats that some election fraud had occurred but not enough to change the outcome, the election should be certified.
- He explained that no one could question the results of a panel consisting of 5 Democrats, 5 Republicans, and 5 USSC Justices, and that if the Democrats wee so confident in their claim they should have NO REASON to object.

More importantly, Cruz's request that this be done was a Constitutional / Legal request to follow EXISTING PRECEDENCE. Cruz's request was not some off-the-wall, personal idea or treasonous attempt to throw out the results of an election. Their Ethics Claim demonstrates these Senators' ignorance of their own Chamber's history:

The same exact thing Senator Cruz was asking for had already been done by the US Senate in 1877




Senator Cruz not only demonstrated his knowledge of Congressional history but also concern for the nation in asking that this set precedence be followed again as a solution that would result in America's confidence in our election process being sustained.

"Regardless of who you want to be president,
the public must have confidence in its voting results."

Senator Cruz did not engage in or voice treason, subversion, or insurrection. He called for the use of ESTABLISHED CONGRESSIONAL PRECEDENCE to be used to build the trust of the American people and eliminate the vast majority of concern millions of Americans had ... and stiil have now ... regarding election fraud.

Only partisan extremism, fear, hatred, and the desire for political revenge - and political ignorance of politicians' own Congressional past - is preventing politicians on both sides of seeing the wisdom of Senator Cruz's proposal.




the epic irony is that it is the Democrats who are subverting the rule of law and assaulting our democracy

Those seditious Senators should be tossed from the Chamber. They supported an insurrection and an attempt to overthrow the sovereign will of the people.

The hypocritical cult and their lying capricious media would support the exact same thing if it were BLM supporters who trashed the Capitol and Democratic Senators voted to overturn the republic.
