Sen. Ted Cruz told Newsmax TV on Friday that the Roy Moore sexual assault allegations are "a terrible situation for Alabama" and "a terrible situation for the country.

"These allegations are serious," the first-term Texas Republican told "The Joe Pags Show" in an interview. "There are multiple allegations of what would be serious criminal conduct if they're true.

"I don't know if they're true. You don't know if they're true, but the allegations are serious enough that they need to be addressed directly."

Cruz told Pags that if the allegations are true, "if he, in fact, committed the criminal conduct that's alleged, then he needs to step down.

"The people of Alabama deserve to have a strong, conservative on the ballot," he said. "They shouldn't be forced to have a Democratic senator if he is guilty of criminal conduct.

"If he's not guilty, if these are lies, if this is a slander, then he needs to stand up now — yesterday — defend himself vigorously, with specificity, lay out specifically what is true and isn't true.

"It's not enough to say the media are liars — all true — and it's not enough to say the Washington establishment doesn't want conservatives. That's true, too.

"When you have serious allegations of criminal conduct, you owe it to the people, you owe it to the voters, to give a full and fair accounting.

"I hope he will do that."
