Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday that the Senate Democrats’ multi-year campaign to “delegitimize” the Supreme Court will do lasting damage to the integrity of the court.
TED CRUZ: Partisan Democrats are filled with fury and filled with rage. And they are filled with rage because they want unlimited abortion on demand until the moment of birth, with taxpayer funding, without parental consent and without parental notification. And the view of nearly all Senate Democrats is precisely that extreme. Today, only 6% of Americans support unlimited abortion up to the time of birth. This is the view of virtually all Senate Democrats. They are radical and extreme. And so they know they are unlikely to win the election by adopting this radical and extreme program. So their approach is that they want five unelected lawyers in black robes to dictate this rule to everyone else.

And the irony, as you played the opening clips of everyone talking about democracy. Democrats don’t believe in democracy. They don’t care what they see as us stupid sheep who need to be ruled by our intellectual superiors. They don’t care what the voters think. They don’t care that voters in the state of Texas are proud that we are protecting innocent lives and protecting unborn children. They do not care. And so they are angry. And I must say that this court leak is the most flagrant breach of trust in the court in our nation’s history and it is the culmination of a multi-year campaign by Senate Democrats to delegitimize and politicize the yard. And I think that this will permanently damage the integrity of the Court, but also the independence of the judiciary. I think it’s incredibly amazing to have a draft opinion leaked before the court makes its final decision.
