Ted Cruz: Menendez Probe Politically Motivated

by The Hill

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) suggested Saturday that the Justice Department’s criminal corruption charges against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) are political retribution against the New Jersey Democrat for opposing the White House’s negotiations with Iran.

Cruz made the allegations to a throng of reporters jammed into the corner of a tent outside the Iowa Ag Summit in Des Moines without even having been asked about the Menendez criminal charges.

“The announcement this week by the Justice Department that they were bringing charges against Bob Menendez — I will point out that the timing seems awfully coincidental that … in the very week that Bob Menendez showed incredible courage to speak out and call out President Obama for the damage that his policy is doing to our national security … the Justice Department announces they’re moving forward with the criminal prosecution,” Cruz said.

“It raises the suggestion to other Democrats that if you dare part from the Obama White House, that criminal prosecutions will be used potentially as a political weapon against you as well,” he added.

    Of course they are. The Dept of Injustice wouldn’t go after one of their own if he was a follower of the fraud in the WH. Just like they got rid of Eric Massa because he was a demoRAT that didagreed with the Unaffordable care fiasco. People like obama, holder,johnson,pelosi,reid,boehner,macain,mcconnell,graham,lerner, have made a mockery of American government and of America itself along with the POS media news outlets. People like holder and johnson have made the security of this country non-existant. Everyone of the people I mentioned and more should all be imprisoned for traitorous acts against America.
