Published

On Thursday, seven Senate Democrats filed an ethics complaint against Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley over their attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election in favor of Donald Trump.

“By proceeding with their objections to the electors after the violent attack, Senators Cruz and Hawley lent legitimacy to the mob’s cause and made future violence more likely,” the senators wrote in a letter to Senate Ethics panel chair Chris Coons and vice chair James Lankford.

According to the letter, the seven Senators want the committee to conduct an investigation into the two Republicans.

“The Senate has the exclusive power to determine whether these actions violated its ethics rules, to investigate further conduct of which we may not be aware that may have violated these rules, and to consider appropriate discipline,” the letter read.
