[su_right_ad]And if there were no probe based on the allegations they’d say Senator Robert Menendez was getting a pass.

Cruz made the allegations to a throng of reporters jammed into the corner of a tent outside the Iowa Ag Summit in Des Moines without even having been asked about the Menendez criminal charges.

“The announcement this week by the Justice Department that they were bringing charges against Bob Menendez — I will point out that the timing seems awfully coincidental that … in the very week that Bob Menendez showed incredible courage to speak out and call out President Obama for the damage that his policy is doing to our national security … the Justice Department announces they’re moving forward with the criminal prosecution,” Cruz said.

“It raises the suggestion to other Democrats that if you dare part from the Obama White House, that criminal prosecutions will be used potentially as a political weapon against you as well,” he added.

    If anyone reading this actually believes that a criminal indictment stemming from an investigation requested by a New Jersey Republican committee chair is some kind of retribution from the Obama administration, I promise I will not call you an idiot.

    You are not bright enough to be an idiot.

    One day, Cruz will see daylight after pulling his head out of his ass. Cruz = Palin in the stupid department.

    If Obama was getting rid of his critics, why the hell is Cruz still standing? Or the Republican leadership – Turtleman & The Orange?
