Watch Fox News Corner Ted Cruz In A Lie He Tries DESPERATELY To Get Out Of

Van Susteren said:

“You supported not citizenship, but giving essentially..”

But before she could finish, he interrupts her, and says:

“Nope, that is factually incorrect.”

Although, it’s not, so she continues:

“Well, let me read you a letter that you wrote…written on June 4, 2013, signed by you. And it talks about how critically the committee rejected, that would be the committee you’re trying to get this amendment to, rejected the Cruz amendment that would have allowed immigrants here to obtain legal status… That’s not true?

Cruz then repeatedly tries to say that the letter wasn’t written by him, even though it contains his signature. This exchange between Cruz and Van Susteren continues for several minutes with the On the Record host not letting him slither his way out of his past record on the issue. Cruz honestly turns lying into an art form.

DNC Agrees To Give Voter Data Access Back To Sanders Campaign


A little past midnight Saturday, the Democratic National Committee and the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders announced that the campaign’s access to key voter data — which had been shut off and was the subject of a lawsuit filed late Friday afternoon — would be restored in the morning.

The statements, however, made clear that the resolution was not a friendly one.

“The Sanders campaign has now complied with the DNC’s request to provide the information that we have requested of them,” DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in her statement. “Based on this information, we are restoring the Sanders campaign’s access to the voter file, but will continue to investigate to ensure that the data that was inappropriately accessed has been deleted and is no longer in possession of the Sanders campaign.”

The Sanders campaign statement, on the other hand, declared that the DNC “capitulated and agreed to reinstate” access to the database.

“The information we provided tonight is essentially the same information we already sent them by email on Thursday,” Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said in the statement. “Clearly, they were very concerned about their prospects in court.”

Charlie Pierce asks right question: Why did DNC leak the story?

. . . if I wanted to distract from the fact that Sanders on Thursday was endorsed by the Communication Workers of America, and by Democracy For America, this also would be exactly the kind of story I would want out there. . . .

There was some serious dumbassery involved on the part of the Sanders campaign, and the person most responsible has been sacked, so the story's over, right? The DNC could allow the Sanders campaign access to the data again. But what admittedly sends my thoughts up a grassy knoll is how this relatively minor blip made it to The Washington Post in the first place. After all, the bungling was with the vendor, and with the DNC for hiring the vendor, so wouldn't the smart play have been to keep this whole thing in-house? Also, if this story survives through the Saturday night debate, let alone becomes an issue therein, and if the Sanders campaign is shut out from the national party data for longer than this weekend, I'm going to be very, very suspicious. Devious and clumsy are, after all, the hallmarks of the DWS era.
