Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is currently America's top podcaster, with his impeachment podcast "VERDICT" topping Apple Podcast charts on Monday.

The daily podcast, which Cruz records after the Senate impeachment trial lets out each night, is beating out incredibly popular shows like "The Joe Rogan Experience" and The New York Times' "The Daily."

Cruz's office said it has been downloaded more than 500,000 times so far.

Cruz is using the podcast to defend President Trump, who was impeached by the House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

"I don't think anyone's mind was changed," Cruz said on the podcast last week. "I think anyone who came in as a yes is still a yes and anyone who came in as a no is still a no. I think that's true for the 100 senators, but I think that's also true for the people at home."
