At the Senate confirmation hearing for Jeff Sessions Tuesday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz tore into Democrats, particularly Al Franken, in defense of his colleague. Sen. Sessions, President-elect Donald J. Trump’s pick for U.S. Attorney General, faced heavy but predictable criticism from his fellow senators.

Sen. Cruz not only defended Sen. Session’s character, but tore into Democrats who oppose him and turned a blind eye to the politicization of the Department of Justice during the prior 8 years under Barack Obama.

“Senator Franken engaged you in a discussion that I think was intended to undermine your character and integrity. And in particular, Senator Franken suggested that you had somehow misrepresented your record,” Sen. Cruz said. “It is unfortunate to see members of this body impugn the integrity of a fellow senator with whom we’ve served with for years. It is particular unfortunate when that attack is not backed up by the facts.”

  • Isn’t this about the new administration?

  • @PPDNews @alfranken was outstanding. About time Dems wake up & stand up. I hope more join him.

  • everyone knows Cruz is a two faced ass

    • He was right on in this video though, DemocRATS are scum and liars.

  • Ted Cruz’s redemption arc is remarkable.

    • Yeah – let’s not forget he’s bought and paid for by Goldman $ach$

  • Sad he threw away his career at the Presidential level with that RNC fiasco.

  • Franken should go back to SNL. He’s a clown.

    • He cheated to get elected. He was loosing till the 12 hr when all of sudden they found two boxes of ballets in a trunk of a car almost all for him, imagine that. How he got away with it or how Obama and all the liberals get away with all these illegal actions is beyond most us. Any normal person would be in jail immediately.

  • He’s Al Franken..and by gosh NO ONE LIKES HIM!

  • thank you for sharing @tedcruz ??

  • Insults and put downs are not discourse. I don’t care where it’s coming from. If Franken made up facts to disparage Sessions, that tactic must be called into question. It is time to call such tactics what they are — the most divisive tactic and the most vicious but always mindless. Always.
