NBC left-wing anchor Andrea Mitchell attempted to smear Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz and it ended with her having to apologize.

Mitchell took to Twitter in an attempt to mock Cruz by using a famous literary reference.

[email protected] says #ImpeachmentTrial is like Shakespeare full of sound and fury signifying nothing. No, that’s Faulkner,” tweeted Mitchell.

It didn’t take long for several Twitter users to weigh in and inform Mitchell that William Faulkner had lifted the title of his book from one the Bard’s plays.

“Faulkner got it from Shakespeare (who put it in the mouth of a murderer, incidentally),” said Ramesh Ponnuru of the American Enterprise Institute.

 

“Smug condescension levitating above an abyss of ignorance,” responded Blake Masters.

Cruz also didn’t waste the opportunity to hit back at Mitchell, where he used another Shakespeare quote.

“Methinks she doth protest too much,” tweeted Cruz.

 

“Touché,” responded Mitchell who added an apology after her original tweet.

The Twitter feud followed a statement from Cruz deriding the impeachment trial in the Senate against former President Donald Trump.

Cruz was one of the 44 Republicans who voted that Trump is not “subject to a court of impeachment for acts committed while president,” but in an article on Fox News, Cruz argues that, in fact, the Constitution does give Congress the authority to impeach and convict a former president.

Cruz writes:

The constitutional question of whether a former president can be impeached or tried after he has left office is a close legal question. On balance, I believe that the better constitutional argument is that a former president can be impeached and tried—that is, that the Senate has jurisdiction to hold a trial.

However, nothing in the text of the Constitution requires the Senate to choose to exercise jurisdiction. In these particular circumstances, I believe the Senate should decline to exercise jurisdiction—and so I voted to dismiss this impeachment on jurisdictional grounds.

Cruz then said there is essentially one main question before the Senate:

Importantly, there are two types of jurisdiction: mandatory and discretionary. With mandatory jurisdiction, the tribunal must hear the case; with discretionary jurisdiction, the tribunal can decide whether to exercise its legal authority to hear the case. For example, the vast majority of the Supreme Court’s caseload arises on discretionary jurisdiction—it has the authority to hear most cases, but it doesn’t have to do so.

And nothing in the Constitution makes the Senate’s impeachment jurisdiction mandatory. “Sole power” means “sole power”—the Senate can decide whether to hear the case.

The present impeachment is an exercise of partisan retribution, not a legitimate exercise of constitutional authority.“On the merits, President Trump’s conduct does not come close to meeting the legal standard for incitement — the only charge brought against him,” Cruz writes.

Cruz was arguing that there could be a case for impeaching a former president, but the one Democrats have brought against Trump is unconstitutional.
