“I had multiple Democrats urging that I should be arrested and tried for the crimes of sedition and treason — that’s not helpful,” Cruz says.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called for Democrats accusing him of “sedition” and “treason” over his challenge to the election results to “tone down the rhetoric.”
“I think everyone needs to calm down,” Cruz told “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo. “I think we need to tone down the rhetoric. This is already a volatile situation. It’s like a tinderbox and throwing lit matches into it.”
“That’s not helpful…at a time when we’re pitted against each other. Just relax, and let’s do our jobs. We have a responsibility to follow the law.”
The Texas senator explained that there’s nothing seditious about following the law to address a large percentage of the public’s concern that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.
