Former Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz blasted the FBI’s decision to not recommend prosecution of Hilary Clinton on Tuesday as a threat to the rule of law.
“While I have tremendous respect for the dedicated men and women of the FBI, I have serious concerns about the integrity of Director Comey’s decision, and how it threatens the rule of law,” the Texas senator said in a statement.
He said that he hoped the FBI hasn’t become politicized like he said the Department of Justice has been under President Obama’s watch.
“Director Comey has rewritten a clearly-worded federal criminal statute,” the statement read. “In so doing, he has come dangerously close to saying that grossly negligent handling of classified information should not result in serious consequences for high-level officials.”
