For those who are looking for insight into the Senate impeachment proceedings outside of the daily, nonstop mainstream news coverage, Texas’ junior senator has just the thing for you.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced yesterday a new podcast he will be producing alongside The Daily Wire’s Michael J. Knowles — who’s most known for writing a best-selling book with no words in it.

The podcast will provide one side of the argument about the Senate’s impeachment trial, with an insider’s perspective.

Impeachment has been a political volleyball since the 2016 election — Texas’ Rep. Al Green (D-TX-09) first called for impeachment in May of 2017 and first introduced articles of impeachment in October of 2017.

After two-plus years of trying, House Democrats finally passed articles of impeachment on December 10. The charges consisted of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over the president’s call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Texan Tumbler

Knowles said of the podcast on Twitter, “Each night, the Senator will head straight from the Capitol to our studio to give you a behind-the-scenes look into the impeachment trial and so much more.”

The first episode from yesterday is up now.

Barring new, groundbreaking information, the president is all-but-expected to be acquitted by the GOP-controlled Senate.
