Skip to comments.Ted Cruz Statement on Firing of Acting Attorney General
Posted on 01/30/2017 8:03:02 PM PST by springwater13
After eight long years of a lawless Obama Department of Justice, it is fitting--and sad--that the very last act of the Obama DOJ is for the Acting AG to defy the newly elected President, refuse to enforce the law, and force the President to fire her. Sally Yates now joins the ignominious succession, from Eric Holder to Loretta Lynch, of Attorneys General who put brazen partisan interests above fidelity to law.
President Trump was exactly right to fire an acting Attorney General who refused to carry out her constitutional duty to enforce and defend the law. Yates lawless partisanship highlights why the Senate needs to act now--and Senate Democrats should end their extreme political obstruction and delay--and confirm Jeff Sessions immediately. America needs and deserves an Attorney General who will be faithful to the Constitution and uphold the law.

Very good Ted, very good.
bravo, Ted. Agree 110%
You go, Ted.
You might just get a SCOTUS spot yet.
That’s like winning the gold medal. Better than being a President. A SC judge? Yea. I’d take it. :)
That’s it Ted. Latch on to everything Trump does as if you did it.
What a guy...
As I said in another thread, Ted Cruz has been shown his father’s and mother’s CIA files. Expect no further problems from Ted.
Trump has at least one ally in the Senate.
If Trump plays this right he holds up that useless liberal hag before Congress and says “you could be next”. Make them and the Senate understand that insubordination or incompetence will not be happening anymore.
Does this pass your Ted Cruz smell test?
I would refer her to the Bar for investigation. Get her license pulled.
he would be a good pick for Ginsberg seat..really piss the libs off by putting cruz into that seat.
For at least the time it took for Ted to latch on to Trump’s actions.
Oh, come on. I can hold a grudge as good as the next guy (maybe more...), but I have to give credit where credit is due.
why the Senate needs to act now-
So start acting and git r’ done!
I mean, wtf, is Obama or Trump
in power? What the hlllll! These people better get it right.
The admins are filled with Obama spies and saboters. Reminds me when State was dragging feet delivering weapons to Israel on orders of Nixxon during Yom Kipour
Thank you Ted!
Hard to beat a SCOTUS gig. Though I think US Senator edges it out. All the perks and gravy and none of the responsibility. There’s always an ever-changing gallery of 99 other goofballs to blame your mistakes on.
We've got Senate RINO's running for cover and you trash the one senator who is defending Trump.
Are you asking if it smells?
This is a NeverTrumper. Don’t forget. When he told folks at the convention to vote their Conscience, it was a message to those who supported him.
If you can’t vote for Trump because of what he did to me, I can understand that.
Ted couldn’t endorse at the convention. After giving it a lot of thought. He just couldn’t pull the trigger against Clinton. Wow.
