Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) caught Joe Biden’s Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights nominee Kristen Clarke in a blatant lie about defunding police during her confirmation hearing on Wednesday.
During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Cruz pointed to an article written by Clarke titled, “I Prosecuted Police Killings. Defund the Police—But Be Strategic“, calling for defunding the police, and asked her if she still believed that the police should be defunded.
“I do not support defunding the police,” Clarke replied under oath, adding that the “impetus” for writing that op-ed was to “make clear” she “does not support defunding the police.”
Cruz then noted that she began three of her paragraphs with the phrase “We must invest less in police.”
“You just said you don’t support cutting funds from police,” Cruz reminded her.
“I find that astonishing, and frankly Ms. Clarke, not credible because I’m holding the article you wrote. And I actually pulled out a highlighter and highlighted the beginning of each paragraph going through,” Cruz added.
“And about midway through, you have a paragraph that says ‘we must invest less in police and more in social workers.’”
“The next paragraph is ‘we must invest less in police and more in social support to our schools,’” Cruz continued. “The next paragraph begins, ‘we must invest less in police and more in mental health aid.’
“Three paragraphs in your article you begin with the words, ‘we must invest less in police’, and you just told this committee under oath you don’t support investing less in police. How do you square those?”
Notably, Clarke has come under scrutiny for her openly racist anti-white and black supremacist views claiming whites are genetically inferior to blacks, a shocking revelation given Biden is nominating her to head the DOJ’s Civil Rights division.
Anti-Whiteness, a blatant form of racism, is becoming industrialized, sanitized and incorporated mostly by the Democrat Party.
