Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News to decry the two-tiered justice system and, in his view, detail its origins and how they will move forward regarding their investigation of former president Donald Trump.
Senator Cruz predicted that Merrick Garland will move to indict Donald Trump due to political pressure to get Trump but that this indictment will be on obstruction charges rather than possession of classified documents. His interview with Fox News was clipped to Benny Johnson's tweet that read, "Ted Cruz drops CHILLING prediction of Trump INDICTMENT by Biden DOJ: "Mark my words: I believe Merrick Garland will INDICT Donald Trump."

The senator began with his version of how the Department of Justice became so politicized. He said, "The Obama Justice Department and the FBI and IRS were turned into political weapons to target their enemies- you just talked about Lois Lerner [who was involved in using the IRS to discriminate between granting tax exemption status to organizations based on politics] that was part of that. It then talks about those career...those vicious partisans burrowed into senior career positions in the agencies and the deep state waged war against Donald Trump during the four years Trump was president the deep state tried to do everything they could to destroy his presidency."
"Now those partisans are back in the open. They are brazen. They are running the Biden Justice Department, the FBI, the IRS, and...it gives me no pleasure to say it- this attorney general, Merrick Garland, is the most partisan, he is the most political attorney general in our nation's history and he has corrupted the Department of Justice," Cruz continued. "He has corrupted the FBI. He has corrupted the machinery of government and they are perfectly willing to use it- it is effectively an arm of the DNC. The hypocrisy is massive and mark my words: I believe Merrick Garland will indict Donald Trump."
Senator Cruz continued by saying, "He wants to indict Donald Trump because he hates Donald Trump. He hates him. He is angry. Merrick Garland is angry that he wasn't confirmed to the Supreme Court. He wants to indict him. I think the plan was to indict him over classified documents and then he got the enormous problem that Joe Biden seemed to have classified documents everywhere including in the garage by his old corvette. I don't think Merrick Garland will indict Trump over classified documents. Here is my prediction: he'll indict Trump over 'obstruction of justice' for hiding the classified documents."
"Now mind you he is not saying the underlying classified documents were a crime because he'd have to indict Joe Biden too," Cruz concluded, adding, "He is gonna instead create a crime about a non-crime- that is gonna be the basis of the indictment and I think...he will also indict Hunter Biden but he will do it on purely personal matters- dealing with drugs and guns and tax issues for Hunter that have nothing to do with Joe Biden because this DOJ wants to protect and insulate Joe Biden and the Biden family's corruption and they want to use Hunter Biden as a scapegoat to justify targetting Donald Trump."
