Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Sunday that Democrats are “terrified” to have Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, be called as a witness in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Cruz declared if the Senate chooses to call trial witnesses, “we’ll not have a one-sided kangaroo court.”

"If the prosecution gets a witness, the defense gets a witness. If the prosecution gets two, the defense gets two,” he explained. “If the prosecution gets to call [former national security adviser] John Bolton, the president gets to call Hunter Biden. 

“The Democrats are terrified seeing a witness like Hunter Biden testify,” he continued. “They don't want to hear evidence of actual corruption, corruption potentially of Joe Biden, corruption that occurred during the Obama administration. 

“They blocked all the witnesses in the House. They will not succeed blocking them in the Senate.”

Cruz added the trial could drag on for months.

"I think it’s certainly possible that this trial could last one to two weeks,” he said. “On the other hand, if the Senate makes the decision to go down the road of additional witnesses, that could extend it to six to eight weeks or even longer."
