John Dean Argues That Hawley, Cruz Should Not be Able to Act as Jurors During Impeachment Trial

Earlier this year, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley proved that they were willing to do almost anything to support Donald Trump. The two were the most prominent senators to back the president’s election fight despite a complete lack of evidence.

The ploy did not work and now Trump is out of office. The ex-President, though, is still facing a looming impeachment trial in the senate. Former Nixon lawyer John Dean is arguing that Cruz and Hawley, who have already proved their fealty to Trump, shouldn’t be able to act as jurors.

Dean made his case on Twitter this weekend. He wrote, “Americans cannot get a fair Senate Impeachment trial of Trump’s insurrection with insurrectionists on the jury. Senators Hawley, Cruz, Graham, Johnson and others who pushed the big lie are co-conspirators and should not sit in judgment of Trump, rather they MUST BE DISQUALIFIED!”

The two senators are attempting to defend themselves. According to Michael Beschloss, “Hawley is claiming that he ‘was never attempting to overturn the election’ and was merely ‘representing my constituents.’ Does Hawley think Americans are gullible and stupid? They are not, and most people can see through phonies.”
