Ted Cruz is reportedly near the top of Donald Trump’s list of choices to potentially replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Cruz, who was regularly mocked by Trump during the Republican primaries and nicknamed ‘Lyin’ Ted’ by the then-candidate, could find himself taking Sessions’ spot if the former Alabama representative resigns or is fired, the Washington Post reports.

Trump would reportedly be willing to make the Texan the country’s chief law enforcement officer despite him having last year revived a rumor linking Cruz’s father, Rafael, to Lee Harvey Oswald and the JFK assassination.

However, Cruz was quick to distance himself from the speculation on Monday night, releasing a statement that said he is ‘deeply gratified that we have a principled conservative like Jeff Sessions serving as Attorney General.

He added: ‘The stories being reported in the media tonight are false. My focus is and will remain on fighting every day to defend 28 million Texans in the US Senate.’

Another name reportedly under consideration is former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani denied he is in the running for the role, which reportedly is on the cusp of being available due to Trump’s desire to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and bring the Russia investigation into his presidential campaign to an end, according to the Post.

Trump has raged in recent days over Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from all matters related to the Russia investigation.
