“Will you follow your oath,” according to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Cruz made the statement last month during a discussion at an event hosted by conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation. The oath is to remain fully impartial during the Senate trial and it is an oath that Cruz doesn’t believe Democrats will stand by.
Reporters keep asking Republicans Senators if they're going to “follow their oath” in the Senate impeachment trial.

“The House managers could show up in grass skirts with hula hoops and yodel and Elizabeth Warren would vote to convict, but, yet, no reporter is asking Elizabeth Warren, or Bernie Sanders, or any of the Democrats ‘are you gonna follow your oath,'” Cruz said.
He continued, “They’re all going to vote to convict except maybe Joe Manchin, maybe a couple of others, but every Democrat running for president is going to vote to convict. Why? Because of partisan rage and they hate Donald Trump…”
On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced those very managers and will proceed with transmitting the articles after an expected House vote at noon eastern.
