Ted Cruz stole the show during the hearing for Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Democrats are suddenly very interested in the rule of law. Ted Cruz reminded them that they’ve been asleep at the wheel for eight years.
Here’s some background from Conservative Review:
Ted Cruz just took Dems’ Sessions hearing hypocrisy and killed it with FIRE
Democrats on the committee, especially Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. (F, 0%) had been grilling Sessions on whether he would uphold abortion laws in the United States if he becomes Attorney General. Senator Patrick Leahy, D, Vt. (F, 6%) interrogated Sessions on LGBT rights, questioning whether Sessions would uphold civil rights laws as Attorney General.
But did the Democrats care when Obama routinely flouted the law?
Ted Cruz wasn’t having it:
“When the Obama Justice Department sent millions of dollars of taxpayer money to sanctuary cities defying federal immigration law, the Democrats on this committee were silent. When the Obama administration refused to enforce federal immigration law…the Democrats on this committee were silent. When the Obama administration released tens of thousands of illegal aliens including rapists and murderers into the general population, Democrats on this committee were silent.”
Watch the video. Note that the audio goes out from 2:05 to 3:00 because a protester is being taken out of the room:
This is the type of situation where Ted Cruz really shines. He’s at his best when he can act as a prosecutor.
