Ted Cruz: Obama administration does not respect First, Second, Fourth or Fifth Amendments
May 30, 2013
On Fox News Thursday afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz indicated that President Obama should ask for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation.
“Yes. Absolutely,” the Texas Republican said flatly, after he was asked by Fox News host Megyn Kelly if Obama should ask for Holder’s resignation.
Cruz cited the “unprecedented” investigations of reporters and Holder’s response to the Fast and Furious scandal as examples of the Justice Department disregarding the law.
“Unfortunately, I think it’s part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights,” Cruz added. “Not respecting the First Amendment, not respecting the Second Amendment, not respecting our Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights regarding drone strikes, regarding the IRS.”
