Adams: I'm proud of Cruz, Hawley

Sen. Ted Cruz (2021)A former political leader in Texas says Republicans need to stand up and resist the Democrats' calls to remove duly-elected lawmakers from office.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin (D)has long been viewed as a "moderate" who might be more reasonable than his further left-leaning colleagues in the upper chamber. But in a recent interview, Manchin said he believes the Senate should consider removing Republican Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri for challenging some Electoral College votes in states where there was alleged election fraud. Manchin claimed the two lawmakers "were complicit in insurrection" and could be removed according to Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.

"I think that the Republicans have got to stand up turn around, look squarely in the eyes of Mr. Manchin, and say that there was no insurrection," responds Cathie Adams, a former chairman of the Republican Party of Texas. "The president's speech and the timing of those who came in to our Capitol are just not in sync with an insurrection."

Contrary to Manchin's position, Adams thinks the two Republican senators should be commended for taking a stand for election integrity.

"I really am proud of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz and also Josh Hawley for stepping forward and wanting to lay out the evidence," she tells One News Now. "I think anyone who does not want to see the evidence, then they are not interested in election integrity, and those people are the problem."

At the same time, Adams doesn't see much courage among House Republicans.

"I really don't see very much courage right now among [GOP] leadership [in the House]. I think Kevin McCarty has been very weak," she offers. "I'm not at all pleased with the leaders who are there right now – and I think it's time that either Republicans get ship-shape or we are going to be drowned." 

Adams offers this advice to voters who, like her, are dissatisfied with the current GOP leadership on Capitol Hill: "Instead of staying home and not voting or instead of fretting and doing nothing, we should be primarying these people who step out of line and do not stand up for our values."
