Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) mourned a police officer who died after sustaining injuries at the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
However, Cruz failed to mention that he stirred up the rioters with an unhinged speech on Jan. 4, which may have incited them to riot.
Devastating. Heidi and I are lifting up in prayer the family of the U.S. Capitol Police officer who tragically lost his life keeping us safe. He was a true hero.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) January 8, 2021
Yesterday's terrorist attack was a horrific assault on our democracy. Every terrorist needs to be fully prosecuted. https://t.co/OMH1C1tc5v
