Posted on 10/13/2019 11:52:49 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
On Sundays broadcast of CBSs Face the Nation, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said it was not appropriate for President Donald Trump to ask China to investigate 2020 presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Bidens son Hunter Biden regarding his business ties.
Partial transcript as follows:
MARGARET BRENNAN: So Chinas a- a surveillance state. Is it appropriate for President Trump to be saying
BRENNAN: China should look into the Biden family? Is that appropriate?
CRUZ: I- look, of course not. Elections in the U.S. should be decided by- by Americans and its not the business of- of foreign countries, any foreign countries, to be interfering in our elections.
BRENNAN: Even Ukraine? I mean when youre talking about some of this, I mean do you think that- say the presidents personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, whos been talking about China, whos been talking about Ukraine. Do you want to hear him testify about this sort of shadow foreign policy?
CRUZ: Listen, foreign countries should stay out of American elections. Thats true for Russia. Thats true for Ukraine. Thats true for China. Thats true for all of them. It should be the American people deciding elections. I- I dont know what Rudys been saying. I- I do know though that we should decide our elections. It should be the American people making those decisions.
BRENNAN: And you do want him to testify before your committee?
CRUZ: I think itd make a lot of sense for Rudy to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Thats- thats ultimately a question for the committee chairman, Lindsey Graham. But- but Id like to see Rudy testify. Yes.

Shut up Ted. I’m sure glad Trump talked me out of voting for you.
Why is the Vice President’s family taking billions of dollars from China?
FUTC (losing looks like Ted)
But totally appropriate to dig through Trump’s tax returns to see what dirt they can dig up; or make up.
It was not appropriate for a Cuban born in Canada to run for President when he could not possibly be a natural born citizen.
Natural born citizens are NATURALLY citizens because e it is not possible for them to be anything else.
They have ONE nationality.
That’s what makes them natural born citizens.
Isnt it time that you apologize for your fathers involvement in the JFK assassination?
What a sniveling little A$$wipe!
Cruz doesn’t know American law, being a Canadian and trying to run to be our president.
Stupid Canadian. Don’t you recognize a gotcha question when you hear one?
Has mighty Ted ever called out anyone for calling Trump a traitor, a Russian spy, etc.?
Ted Cruz, what a disappointment. Can’t believe I once supported him.
Then I discovered his wife was an executive at Goldman-Sachs which explains pretty much everything about Cruz and his flip flop tendencies.
I still mostly like Ted but Ted, STFU!
This is just ANOTHER example of why we need to abandon electing Senators to the presidency. And, another example of how we dodged a bullet with Donald Trump entering the race in’16.
This response is TYPICAL politician. Especially, typical Senatorial politician. They are ALL TALK No Action.
Was it appropriate for the Clinton Foundation to solicit funds/bribes from foreign governments and their representatives from around the world?
Was it appropriate for John Kerry to go around the administration and try to negotiate directly with Iran?
Was it appropriate for Ted Kennedy to try to torpedo President Reagan using direct communications with the Russians?
Was it appropriate for Obama to tell a representative of the Russian government - ‘wait until after the election, and I will have more flexibility’?
This is not about ‘politics’, per se. This is about corruption, at the highest level, by a candidate for the Presidency, a former Vice-President, and his son, all in the context of interactions with at least two foreign governments.
Screw your head on straight Ted.
A fair question to ask Cruz: Should a presidential candidate have absolute immunity from criminal inquiries?
Ted is a pompous ass. All hat, no cattle.
It is not appropriate to blame the leftist attack on voters attending a Trump rally on Trump and the voters Ted.
Chill out, Ted.
The President can have any American citizen investigated.
He is protecting America.
