Appearing on Fox News on Sunday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz urged his critics to “tone down the rhetoric” and “relax” about a plan to delay President-elect Joe Biden’s 2020 victory by officially objecting to Electoral College votes on January 6th because it’s a very “volatile” situation.
Pointing out that some lawmakers have said Cruz’s plan borders on sedition, host Maria Bartiromo asked the Texas Republican about the “pressure” he is getting from members of both parties who oppose his plan to object to Biden’s win.
“Listen, I think everyone needs to calm down,” Cruz replied. “I think we need to tone down the rhetoric. This is already a volatile situation like a tinderbox and throwing lit matches into it.”
Cruz recalled that “multiple Democrats” had called for him to be “arrested and tried for the crimes of sedition and treason.”
“That’s not helpful,” he complained. “At a time when this country, when we’re pitted against each other. Just relax and let’s do our jobs!”
