Cruz: Dems Haven't 'Laid a Single Glove' on Kavanaugh Amid Outbursts of 'Incredible Rage & Fury'
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Wednesday on Hannity that the "rage and fury" by those on the left was on full display as Senate Democrats and protesters repeatedly interrupted Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings.
Democratic lawmakers called for delaying the proceedings on Tuesday, and protesters chaotically interrupted senators making opening remarks.
Day two of the hearings started similarly, as multiple protesters interrupted Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley as he tried to bring the hearing to order.

Cruz said that both days of hearings were a success for Kavanaugh, and that Democrats "have not laid a single glove" on him.
Cruz added that he believes the protests seen on both days were "closely coordinated" with Democratic senators attending the hearings.
"It's really the reflection of the incredible rage and fury we're seeing on the far left," he said.
Grassley (R-Iowa) said on Wednesday that Democratic senators interrupted Tuesday's hearing 63 times before lunch.
He also said 70 people in the audience were arrested. On top of that, Capitol Police said 73 people were charged in connection with unlawful demonstrations Wednesday.
Cruz said that even as Democrats protest, they haven't presented a successful argument to derail Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.
.@SenTedCruz: "No Democrat has disputed that Brett Kavanaugh is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court. And they're just really expressing the rage of the Far Left to @realDonaldTrump. They're mad that Trump won in 2016 and @HillaryClinton lost." #Hannity https://t.co/94dbhbUiv0 pic.twitter.com/J1kRR0Vasg
