Ted Cruz has been on the outs with the MAGA movement since he exposed his true colors and said that the January 6th protesters are “terrorists” and that what happened that day was a “violent terrorist attack.” Specifically, when discussing the issue in the Senate, he said:
“We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week … And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol, where we saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery — risk their lives for the Capitol.”
Though he later went on Tucker Carlson to grovel and claim his comment was a “mistake,” the damage had been done to his reputation; we all could see where he really stood.
Still, he’s attempting to wash that massive stain off his suit and get back in the good graces of Trump’s MAGA movement, most recently by going on the offense against Hillary in his comments on the Durham probe.
Speaking about it, on Fox News Sunday, he sounded a good bit more like what one expects a real conservative to sound like.
First, going over the allegations, Cruz gave a relatively clear and concise summary of what Durham has so far alleged, saying:
“We have to see what the facts are, the allegations, what he filed in federal court, is deeply concerning.
What he alleged as a federal prosecutor, a special prosecutor, is that a lawyer for the Hillary Clinton campaign conspired with a big tech executive to monitor and spy on Donald Trump, to spy on him at his home, to spy on him at his office, and indeed they were spying on the White House itself. They were spying on a sitting president.”
Then, after summing up the allegations, Cruz went off on those involved, from the media that covered it up (and continues to do so) to Hillary herself, saying:
“You and I both remember when President Trump said the Democrats are spying on me. The corporate media collectively laughed at him. They mocked him. They said what a ridiculous claim for him to make.
Well, what special counsel Durham is alleging is true. What Donald Trump said was absolutely right. To the extent Hillary Clinton is complicit with this, her campaign is complicit with it, or lawyers are complicit with it, big tech is complicit with it.
If this is true, it’s a lot bigger than Watergate. That was a bungled, third-rate burglary. It was wrong, people to jail for Watergate, and people need to go to jail for this if these allegations are true.”
Watch him here:
Cruz is right. This spying scandal isn’t just another case of corrupt politicians acting like slimy, corrupt politicians. That much is to be expected from the Swamp.
No, this was espionage that led to far worse relations with one of the largest world power, a power we now might be on the path to war with thanks to those bad relations.
If what Durham alleged is true, sending people to jail for that would be letting them off easy.
