In what is shaping to be one of the fiercest battles in modern midterm election history, democrats Beto O’Rourke is pulling out all the stops in an effort to upset Senate republican and former presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
Cruz, who was known for his heated battles with eventual-President Trump during the 2016 general election, is finding a feisty opponent O’Rourke, who has relied on his extensive knowledge of millennial interests in order to drum up support for his left wing policies throughout the Lone Star State. Beto has even gone so far as to stage a number of skateboarding stunts in order to show the kids in Texas that he’s ostensibly “cool”.
During a Town Hall program last night on CNN, however, Beto’s tone took a darker turn in talking about the fate of the President going forward.
“There may be an open question as to whether the President, then the candidate, sought to collude with the Russian government in 2016,” O’Rourke said. “But to quote George Will — very conservative columnist — when we saw him on that stage in Helsinki defending Vladimir Putin, the head of the country that attacked our democracy in 2016 instead of this country, and its citizens and this amazing democracy, that was collusion in action.”
He continued, “You may have wondered when he fired James Comey, the principle investigator into what happened in that election, whether that was an attempt to obstruct justice. But when, by broad daylight on Twitter, he asked his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, to end the Russia investigation, I would say that’s obstruction in action.”O’Rourke then said he likens impeachment to an indictment.“There is enough there to proceed to a trial,” he said.O’Rourke said he “would not prejudge the outcome of that trial.”“All I am saying is, there’s enough there,” he said. “I know that this is not politically easy or convenient to talk about, but 242 years into this experiment … nothing guarantees us a 243rd or a 244th.”
