The petition, which was created on MoveOn.org, demanded Cruz be expelled from the Senate for treason and conspiracy to incite an “armed insurrection in Washington,” “undermining rule of law,” “coup attempt (not bloodless!)” and “sedition.” It currently has 75,000 signatures.
“AT THE WRITING OF THIS PETITION, THE US CAPITOL IS CURRENTLY ON LOCKDOWN AS TED CRUZ AND FELLOW COWARDLY REPUBLICAN LEGISLATORS STATED THEIR CONVICTION THAT CERTIFYING THE VOTES OF THE PEOPLE ‘IS A PROFOUND THREAT TO THIS COUNTRY AND TO THE LEGITIMACY OF ANY ADMINISTRATIONS THAT WILL COME IN THE FUTURE,'” the petition stated.
The petition also accused Cruz of inspiring “armed standoff in the capitol chambers,” “evacuating chambers” and “members of congress sheltering in place.”
