(AbsoluteNews.com) – On Tuesday, February 9, the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump began. It marked the first time in American history a former POTUS was put on trial. And, many Republicans aren’t happy about it.
After the first day, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke to Fox News’ Sean Hannity about the day’s events and lashed out at the Left. The lawmaker said the trial is nothing more than political theater. He explained there will be a lot of fist-pounding but at the end of the day, nothing will come of the trial because there aren’t enough Republicans willing to convict Trump.

Cruz wasn’t alone in his outrage. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) called the proceedings “unconstitutional.”

So far, the Democrats have not shown any evidence that Trump did anything wrong. And although the Senate overstepped its authority and determined the proceedings were constitutional, that’s a job reserved for the Supreme Court.
