"It's Unprecedented": Rising Star Sen. Ted Cruz Talks to Megyn Kelly About WH Scandal
In an interview with Megyn Kelly on America Live, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) reflected on his extensive history as an attorney and used it to weigh in on the increasing scandals surrounding current U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
"The conduct of the Justice Department does not inspire confidence. We have seen pattern after pattern with respect to investigation of the media. We have seen the Department of Justice willing to seize the phone records, to seize the emails of this network, of the Associated Press and by all appearances the attorney general went before Congress, stated he had nothing to do with it, it's become public that he did in fact have quite a bit to do with it. The attorney general needs to come forward and explain what the truth is and why he told Congress something different," said Cruz.
"You know a thing or two about being attorney general and about the law," said Megyn, citing his time as deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush, as well as his education at Harvard Law. "How unusual is it, in your experience, for the DOJ to be going after reporters, their records and so on? Is this something that would likely stand out in Eric Holder's mind?"
"It's unprecedented," he responded. "And the degree of willingness of this administration to target, to target a reporter for this network as an unindicted co-conspirator? I mean, that is without precedent. And, unfortunately, I think it's part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights."
