Ted Cruz Settles the Rumors That He’s Going to Replace Jeff Sessions as Attorney General

Texas senator and former presidential candidate Ted Cruz is putting to bed the reports from the Washington Post, a leading member of the Democrat Media Complex, that he is being considered to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

The Post reported on Monday:

“Among the names being floated as possible Sessions replacements are Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, according to people familiar with the conversations.”

Like many stories based on anonymous sources, the story is false according to the Texas senator.

“Jeff Sessions is a friend and a strong conservative. I was proud to vote to confirm Jeff and to vigorously defend his confirmation, and I’m deeply gratified that we have a principled conservative like Jeff Sessions serving as Attorney General,” Cruz said in a statement, NBC News reported.

“The stories being reported in the media tonight are false, Senator Cruz stated. My focus is and will remain on fighting every day to defend 28 million Texans in the U.S. Senate.”

While Ted Cruz would be an excellent attorney general under normal circumstances, I think we’ve all seen it might not be the most stable of situations. And besides that, it would be much better to keep Cruz fighting for conservative principles in the U.S. Senate. We’ve seen how important of a voice and vote he is.

Without Ted Cruz’s historic 23-hour filibuster in the U.S. Senate in 2013, repealing Obamacare may not even be on the table.

Although, it would be pretty ironic if Ted Cruz did replace Jeff Sessions. Sessions was the first U.S. Senator to endorse Donald Trump, who’s all over the board politically and had no history of conservativism. Many conservates were stunned when then-Senator Jeff Sessions endorsed Trump over Cruz in the GOP primary, considering that Cruz is by far the more conservative and has a track record to back it up.

On Monday, President Trump referred to his attorney general as “beleaguered” for not “looking into Crooked Hillarys [sic] crimes & Russia relations?”

However, it was Donald Trump himself, who said that the administration wouldn’t be pursuing Hillary Clinton, despite all the “Lock her up! Lock her up!” chants during campaign rallies.

In a meeting in November 2016 following his win with editors and reporters at the New York Times, President-elect Trump said he doesn’t “want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t. She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways,” even though he strongly campaigned on being the “law and order” president.
