Cruz on Impeachment: ‘Outcome ... Will Not Be Dismissal, It Will Be Acquittal’

‘That is a much better outcome for the president’


CRUZ: "Bill, let me make sure of answering the question on dismissal. I think the outcome of this case will not be dismissal. It will be an acquittal. Those are different outcomes. Dismissal throws the case out without reaching a verdict. We are going to reach a verdict, and the verdict is going to be acquittal. The verdict is going to be not guilty because on the face of it the articles of impeachment don’t meet this constitutional standard. That is a much better outcome for the president, to be acquitted of these charges than simply a dismissal.”
