Republican Senator Ted Cruz is dropping truth bombs as usual, and he recently had some choice words to say about the pressure being put on Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas and his colleagues after a leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade.
“Cruz sounded off on the full-court press applied to Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas and his Supreme Court colleagues through an apparent leak of a draft opinion on a pending court decision on abortion,” reports Breitbart.
“Cruz said he did not believe Thomas was intimidated by the pressure campaign and insisted it was a law clerk sympathetic to left-of-center politics who leaked the opinion for Democrat’s political gain,” reported Breitbart News.
“Well, listen, Justice Thomas is a great American hero,” Cruz said. “I know him well. The left is trying to demonize him and attack him. One of the things I love about Justice Thomas — he’s got that big, booming laugh. It’s almost like Santa Claus — ‘Ho, ho, ho.’ He is not intimidated by the leftists that are coming after him. And you know, what he just said there that you aired a second ago is this leak at the Supreme Court — was the radical left trying to destroy or Supreme Court. It went right to the heart of the trust in that institution. And by the way, I’m convinced it was a leftist law clerk who leaked it in order to bully and pressure the justices to change their vote.”
“Why do you believe that?” Sean Hannity of Fox News asked.
“Because it’s consistent with the Democrat pattern for years of politicizing and undermining and attacking the judiciary and the Supreme Court, trying to politicize it,” Cruz answered. “And you look at who celebrated the leak. It was the hard left that celebrated the leak the instant it happened. Immediately after the leak, you saw left-wing groups publicizing the home addresses of the justices. And we’re now seeing angry left-wing protesters going to the justices’ homes, trying to terrorize them, trying to threaten them. Listen, if someone comes to your home, that’s where your children are. That’s where you and your spouse sleep.”
