Bill Clinton Accuses Ted Cruz of Making (Unspecified) False Statements
CNSNews ^ | September 29, 2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey

Posted on 09/29/2013 3:54:30 PM PDT by jazusamo

(CNSNews.com) - Former President Bill Clinton—who was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice and held in contempt of court by U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving “intentionally false” testimony—claimed to his former staffer George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday that Sen. Ted Cruz made multiple false statements during his filibuster on the Senate floor last week.

“I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not,” Clinton told his former aide.

Clinton did not specifically cite any false claim that he claims Cruz made on the Senate floor, nor did Stephanopoulos ask Clinton to give any examples of false statements by Cruz or in any way justify his assertion that Cruz had made such statements.

Clinton made the accusation against Cruz while explaining to Stephanopoulos why he thinks President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats should not give in to congressional Republicans on the question of delaying Obamacare.

“This is the House Republicans and the Tea Party people saying we don’t want to negotiate with the Democrats,” said Clinton. “We want to dictate over the Senate, over the House Democrats, over the Speaker of the House of our own party and over the president. We insist on dictating the course of the country.”

Stephanopoulos then asked: “So you’re saying you just have to stand up to that no matter what the consequences?”

“I do. I do,” said Clinton. “It’s terrible because all over the world people see like, you know---I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not.”

Starting on Sept. 24 and running through noon on Sept. 25, Sen. Cruz held the Senate floor for 21 hours and 19 minutes to make the case to his colleagues and the country that Congress ought to use the continuing resolution needed to fund the government after midnight this Monday to defund the implementation of Obamacare.

Stephanopoulos worked on Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign and then as a senior adviser to Clinton during his first presidential term.

“Everybody knows they’re not”? Great citation. I’ll bet his law school briefs were a hoot.

Do tell, newbie.

We'll see, but if I were you I wouldn't push Guiliani over Ted Cruz on this site (as per your short history), even if he should run with Sarah Palin as VP.

Cruz/Palin or Palin/Cruz will be a winner.

Nah. He’s just hitting too close to home right now threatening to take o e of 0’s prizes down off the mantle and the Dems don’t like it. He probably didn’t run to Hannity; its probably the other way around. Cruz is big news right now by standing up to the evil empire and naturally Hannity would want to interview him on the air.

A known convicted liar has no credibility to call anyone else a liar. One immediately assumes the claim itself is a lie.

Mind did too. Do you know a good repair shop for irony meters?

I think that old clown nose has taken “accuse your enemies of
what you’re doing” a little too far down the road there.
