The Senate Judiciary Committee would “consider any allegations that come forward” about President Donald Trump reportedly working as an agent for Russia after the firing of ex-FBI Director James Comey, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Sunday.
In an interview with NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” Cruz said, however, he doesn’t “know the details or the specifics there.”
“I know what was reported publicly in the media,” he said. “And I sit on the Senate Judiciary Committee so we will consider any allegations that come forward.”
“I’ll consider whatever evidence is produced,, but I’m not going to base it on unsubstantiated media reports,” he added.
Cruz also said he wasn’t at all concerned about Trump going easy on Russia, asserting former President Barack Obama was far worse.
“I will say, if you compare, objectively, President Trump's policies to Russia, compared to President Obama's policies to Russia, by any measure, President Obama was much easier, was much more gentle, on Russia,” he said.
Cruz also spoke out about the inflammatory comments made about white supremacism by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa — who was co-chair of the Cruz presidential campaign.
“What Steve King said was stupid,” Cruz said. “It was stupid, hurtful, it was wrong, and he needs to stop it. I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party , in saying white supremacism, white nationalism is hatred, it is bigotry, it is evil, it is wrong. And I think we need that clarity and I’m certainly going to urge everyone to provide that clarity.”
