Ted Cruz, United States Senator from Texas, joins Liberty & Justice. Senator Cruz and I discuss the Federal Bureau of Investigation and how a two-tiered system of justice is hurting the United States. We also discuss Ted’s upcoming book “Justice Corrupted: How the Left Weaponized Our Legal System” (preorder it here: amzn.to/3bSPedO) and his recent book “One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History” (buy it here: amzn.to/3C3nVZ3). I highly recommend both books. Watch every episode of Liberty & Justice at Whitaker.tv.
