Seconds after demanding that the FBI search any property belonging to President Joe Biden for classified documents, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) insisted that it was no big deal such materials had just been found at former Vice President Mike Pence’s home in Indiana.
How’s that for doing a flip-flop in the middle of blatant hypocrisy?
During an appearance on the Fox Business show “Kudlow” Tuesday, Cruz went on an extended rant aimed at Biden and his son, Hunter.
“I believe the FBI needs to search the residences of Hunter Biden and any business offices of Hunter Biden to determine if there are classified materials there, because if these classified materials in particular implicate Burisma, Ukraine, communist China, payments going to Hunter Biden or Joe Biden’s brother or the Biden family, then this shifts from a political problem to a very serious problem of criminal liability and major crimes.
“And so, the FBI needs to search the University of Delaware archives and they need to search Hunter Biden’s home and business addresses.”
But when Kudlow asked about the news that documents had been found at Pence’s home, Cruz suddenly began singing a different tune.
“Oh look, the Mike Pence story, it’s still early. You know, Mike Pence, as you noted he is a good friend, he’s a good man. He’s explained where these came from, what his office has put out is that in packing up the vice presidential offices that there were a couple of papers that were classified that were inadvertently put with non-classified materials. That was a mistake, but there’s no reason to think this was anything but inadvertent.
“That is very different from what Joe Biden has done. Joe Biden has given zero explanation how these classified documents got there. And in particular, he has given no explanation as to how he has documents from his time in the Senate.”
It’d be easy to say that Cruz is such a notorious flip-flopper that his latest contortions are to be expected. But it still needs to be pointed out, along with a reminder that Teddy is called the most hated person in the U.S. Senate.
