Sen. Ted Cruz gave Attorney General William Barr major props during his testimony on the Mueller report.
Chicks on the Right reports:
After countless Democrats had taken the opportunity to grandstand about how SHAMEFUL he was for doing his job instead of putting his entire energy into defeating evil orange Trump, Cruz made it clear that he saw this for what it was: yet ANOTHER political circus.
“You’ve had an extraordinarily successful legal career, you didn’t have to take this job, and you step forward and answered the call yet again knowing full well that you would be subject to the kind of slanderous treatment, the Kavanaugh treatment, that we have seen of senators impugning your integrity.”
He’s EXACTLY right. If this all looks familiar, it’s because the Dems put anyone who has anything to do with Trump through it at this point.
“And I, for one, am grateful that you answered that call and are leading the Department of Justice both with integrity and fidelity to law. That is what the nation rightly expects of our attorney general. And I believe you are performing that very ably.”
Any American who’s paying attention should be grateful.
“I think this hearing today has been quite revealing to anyone watching it, although perhaps not for the reasons some of the Democratic senators intended,” Cruz said. He went on to call out Democrat lawmakers for their “extreme rhetoric” during the Mueller investigation. He also blasted Democrats for hardly mentioning the word “Russia” during the hearing, but instead focusing on a letter Robert Mueller reportedly sent to Barr where the special counsel said he was unsatisfied with Barr’s public summary of the investigation.

“The principal attack that the Democratic senators have marshaled upon you concerns this March 27th letter from Robert Mueller, and it’s an attack that I want people to understand just how revealing it is. Because if this is their whole argument, they ain’t got nothing,” he said.
“Their entire argument is: General Barr, you suppressed the 19 pages that are entirely public, that we have, that we can read, that they know every word of it, and their complaint is it was delayed a few weeks,” said Cruz.
“And that was because of your decision not to release the report piecemeal but rather to release those 19 pages, along with the entire 448 pages produced by the Special Counsel.”
“Yes,” Barr replied.
“If that is their argument, I have to say that is an exceptionally weak argument.”
Barr even LAUGHED.
BECAUSE IT’S BULL CRAP.
“Because if you’re hiding something, I’ll tell you right now, General Barr, you’re doing a very lousy job of hiding it. Because the thing that they’re suggesting you hid, you released, to Congress and the American people.”
