During Senator Jeff Sessions’ Attorney General confirmation hearing today in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Ted Cruz points out the numerous Democratic hypocrisies so prevalent over the past eight years and during the hearing.
Democrats on the committee, especially Senator Dianne Feinstein, had been grilling Senator Sessions on whether he would uphold abortion laws in the United States if he becomes Attorney General. Senator Patrick Leahy, 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.”
Ted Cruz was on fire. And he wasn’t done. He went on to point out the Democratic hypocritical silence on Obama flouting the law and paying a ransom to Iran and for releasing Guantanamo terrorists without congressional approval.
