Sen. Ted Cruz just spoke in defense of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and against the Democrats attacks.
Democrats are calling for AG Sessions to resign from his office because they don’t want him there. They fought him tooth and nail before he was confirmed and they keep fighting him. In my opinion, they know he’s going to clean up many things, and they are trying to stop him from doing his job.
Sen. Cruz joined Morning Joe this morning and said this is a “nothing burger.”
From the video:
“You see Democratic politicians this morning coming out and blasting Jeff and saying things like that this was misleading. You know, many of — many of us have served with Jeff for years, sometimes decades in the Senate. Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity, he’s a man of candor.
I don’t know any senator who served with Jeff Sessions, Democrat or Republican, who would say that Jeff has been anything less than totally honest. Now they don’t like that he’s a conservative. You know, the Democrats don’t like Jeff as a conservative. But he is very open and honest about his views.
And, by the way, Jeff has been a serious critic of Russia. He’s not been shy calling out Putin. So the notion that there was something somehow wrong with a senior senator on the Armed Services Committee meeting with a foreign ambassador, I think that’s a nothing burger.
And the testimony Jeff should have been more clear. I think he said that he wished he was more clear. But, at the end of the day, I don’t think that there’s any there there.

Ted Cruz on MSNBC calls Sessions’ meeting with Russian ambassador a "nothing burger … he was simply doing his job [as a Senator]."
