Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said, if Durham allegations are proven true, government officials should get jail time for their actions.
Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr appointed John Durham as a special prosecutor in October 2020 to investigate Crossfire Hurricane participants. That was the federal probe into baseless claims that former President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russians to win the election. Durham filed a motion in the District of Columbia’s District Court February 11 alleging potential conflicts of interests that arose from defendant Michael Sussman’s choice of legal counsel.
In his motion, Durham notes links between Durham, an owner of an IT company with access to network servers in the Trump Tower and the White House, and people associated with the Hillary Clinton 2020 presidential campaign. Sussman, a successful cybersecurity lawyer who worked on a previous Clinton campaign, was indicted by Durham Sept. 16, 2021 on charges he lied to federal agents.
In an interview with Fox News Sunday, Senator Cruz said that, if what Durham is alleging is true, then the scandal is orders of magnitude bigger than Watergate.
“What Durham alleges, as a special prosecutor, is that a lawyer for the Hillary Clinton campaign conspired with a big tech executive to monitor and spy on Donald Trump,” Cruz explained. “To spy on him at his home, to spy on him at his office and, indeed, they were spying on the White House itself. ”
“They were spying on a sitting president.”
Cruz recounted that when President Trump said, “The Democrats are spying on me,” the corporate media collectively laughed at him, mocked him, and said “what a ridiculous claim to make.” It appears the former president may not have been making a ridiculous statement after all.
“People need to go to jail for this, if these allegations are true,” the Texas senator said. “People went to jail for Watergate and people need to go to jail for this, if the accusations are proven true.”
