In January of 2021, Cruz decided to throw his support behind Donald Trump’s election coup. And some of those friends that supported him before, decided that would be the end of their relationship with the Texas senator.

He was also the most knowledgeable of the intricacies of both the Electoral Count Act and the Constitution, and the ways to exploit the two.”
