Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Friday he agrees with those who view Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) participants as “dangerous radicals” and vowed the US would see a red “tsunami” in November’s midterm elections .
“It comes to mind that the Biden FBI believes this is a dangerous radical space,” Cruz said while remarking at CPAC in Dallas. “And you know what? You’re right. To a bunch of power hungry, abusive, totalitarian idiots, there is nothing more dangerous than a free, empowered and energetic American people taking back our country.”
The November midterm elections will be a pivotal moment for the two leading political parties in the US as Republicans seek control of Congress and Democrats seek to expand their power in both the House and Senate. Some recent polls by CBS News and FiveThirtyEight have shown that Republicans are in a good position to secure a majority in the House of Representatives, while FiveThirtyEight estimates that Democrats are “slightly favored” to retain control of the Senate .
The Senate is currently made up of 50 Republicans and 48 Democrats, with two independents partying with the Democrats. In the event of a tie on a Senate vote, Democratic Vice President Kamala Harris has the tiebreaker vote.
Cruz’s mention of the “Biden FBI” at CPAC, which also included a speech by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, appears to be a reference to an alleged FBI training document he published during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on FBI oversight on Thursday brought language. Cruz asked FBI Director Christopher Wray, who testified at the hearing, about the document, which he said was obtained from conservative organization Project Veritas.
That document, according to Cruz, “listed various symbols and themes that the FBI determined indicated ‘militia violent extremism.’”
Those symbols included Gonzales’ battle flag, according to Cruz. Just before making the comment about the Biden FBI and “dangerous radicals” at CPAC, Cruz pointed out the Gonzales battle flag in the room.
Texas lawmakers raised concerns at Thursday’s Senate hearing that the FBI and Justice Department have been “thoroughly politicized.” He also once slammed his boot on the table to show that it had Gonzales’ battle flag on the back.
Wray responded at the time that he was unfamiliar with the document and “it was not in the practice of attempting to comment on documents that I did not recognize”.
“But I will tell you that when we release intelligence products, including those that reference symbols, which we do in a variety of contexts, we usually go to great lengths, great lengths to put caveats and warnings in the document, clarifying that a symbol alone is not evidence of violent extremism,” he added.
