Texas Senator Ted Cruz is out with a new book titled “Justice Corrupted: How the Left Weaponized Our Legal System.” In his book, Cruz explains how the Biden Justice Department has been turned into a weapon to target political enemies.
He cites Loudoun County, Virginia when the news of a sexual assault committed by a boy in a skirt and the subsequent cover-up by the district resulted in a backlash from parents over the district’s transgender bathroom policy.
Cruz recounts how the parent uprising in school districts resulted in the Justice Department directing the FBI to “target” parents. In his book, Cruz argues that the weaponization of law enforcement began during the Obama administration but has “metastasized” since Joe Biden took office.
In a recent interview with Fox News about his book, Cruz said if Republicans retake Congress in January, they will hold the Biden administration accountable on these issues, including the investigation into what the president knew about Hunter Biden’s foreign deals and the subsequent cover-up of Hunter’s laptop by the FBI and DOJ.
Cruz told Fox News that the real motivation behind going after Hunter on minor charges was to grease the skids for when the Justice Department eventually indicts former President Donald Trump.
By indicting Hunter, the DOJ can indict Trump without being accused of being biased, Cruz explained. Cruz also touches on the events of January 6 when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol. In his book, Cruz reveals that during the riot, he “assembled our coalition in a back room,” which he describes as more of a “supply closet with stacked chairs” so they could discuss what they should do next.
He writes that some in the coalition suggested suspending their objections to the certification of electors but Cruz “vehemently disagreed.”
He added that while he “understood the sentiment,” he urged his colleagues that the course they were “advocating was the right and principled one.”
