Senator Ted Cruz is not afraid to call it like he sees it, and this time he couldn’t be more right. During the Gorsuch confirmation hearing Cruz put democrats in their place over their hypocrisy.
Democrats have unfairly been attaching Judge Gorsuch and Cruz had apparently had enough. The Dems say their questioning is so intense to properly “vet” the nominee but Americans know that its just because they are trying to get their way, which they ultimately won’t. Cruz pointed out that they seem to only want such lines of questioning when its a Republican’s nominee.
“In the past weeks as well, some of my Democratic colleagues have questioned Judge Gorsuch’s independence. Suggested that he needs to answer questions about the actions and statements and even the tweets of the president who appointed him. I would ask, was Justice Ginsburg or Justice Breyer, asked about the sexual harassment that had been filed against president Clinton by Paula Jones. No, neither was asked about that lawsuit.”
“Was Justice Kagan asked about President Obama’s incendiary comments at the State of the Union attacking the Supreme Court for a decision he disagree with? No of course not. Those questions were not asked because they were inappropriate political questions that have nothing to do with the record of the nominee before this committee.”
Watch Senator Cruz and all his glorious argument below and share it with friends. Let him know American’s have his back in this fight!
