Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) strongly criticized the Biden family following the confirmation by the U.S. Department of Justice this week that the laptop linked to President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, does indeed belong to him.
Cruz delivered these comments on the latest installment of his “Verdict” podcast alongside co-host Ben Ferguson this week, following the disclosure in federal court as Hunter Biden’s legal team sought to dismiss one of the criminal cases against him.
“Look, this is a stunning admission. It means Joe Biden lied to the American people,” Cruz said. “Hunter Biden lied to the American people. Just about every single elected Democrat in America lied to the American people. Just about every single corporate media outlet that repeated the Democrat talking points lied to the American people.”
Cruz pointed out that much of the deception regarding the laptop took place in October 2020, just a few weeks before the presidential election. Regarding the former intelligence officials who endorsed a letter suggesting that the Hunter Biden laptop story resembled a Russian disinformation campaign, Cruz remarked that they had shown a willingness to be partisan.
“They’re willing to lie to the American people,” he said. “And they don’t feel they have any obligation to the truth. I mean, this does enormous damage to the Department of Justice, the FBI, because they knew as a fact, that what Biden was saying that what was being said public was a total lie.”
Cruz urged reporters to interrogate the numerous officials who endorsed the letter, asking them whether they feel embarrassed or if they intend to offer an apology to the American people.
“I don’t think there’ll be a single reporter who will ask them that because the corporate media participated in the lies as well,” he said. “They’re not embarrassed, they’re not ashamed. And they’re certainly not going to ask the liars who participated in what is, you want to talk about election interference? This is blatant election interference.”
