In an interview on Fox News Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said the Department of Justice has shown a disregard for the law that is unprecedented and called for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder, Politico reports.

“The degree of willingness of this administration to target a reporter for this network as an unindicted co-conspirator — that is without precedent,” Cruz said, speaking with anchor Megyn Kelly.

“And unfortunately, I think it’s part and parcel of a pattern of this administration of not respecting the bill of rights.”

“This Department of Justice has demonstrated a willingness to disregard the law,” Cruz continued, adding that President Obama should demand Holder’s resignation.

Cruz also chastised the Obama administration for its handling of the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups.

“In recent weeks there are at least two instances of senior officials for the administration telling flat out falsehoods,” Cruz said.

“I think president Obama needs to take responsibility and needs to tell the truth.

Over and over again, the pattern you see is an unfortunate willingness to use the machinery of the federal government as a … partisan tool to punish those perceived as political enemies.”
