Cruz: You May Not Believe The Election Was Rigged, "It Is Nonetheless A Reality For Nearly Half The Country"

|

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Wednesday even if you do not share the belief that the 2020 presidential election was rigged, it is the responsibility of Congress to investigate the "profound threat."


"We gathered together at a moment of great division, at a moment of great passion. We have seen a no doubt we’ll continue to see, a great deal of moralizing from both sides of the aisle. But I would urge to both sides perhaps a bit less certitude, and a bit more recognition that we are gathered at a time when democracy is in crisis. Recent polling shows that 39% of Americans believe the election that just occurred, 'was rigged.' You may not agree with that assessment. But it is nonetheless a reality for nearly half the country. I would note it is not just Republicans who believe that. 31% of independence agree with that statement. 17% of Democrats believe the election was ripped. Even if you do not share that conviction, it is the responsibility, I believe of this office to acknowledge that as a profound threat to this country and to the legitimacy of any administrations that will come in the future," Cruz said.
