Cruz: “Those who lionize, convicted cop killers are not suitable for major leadership roles at the Department of Justice” (Video)

Today the Senate rejected President Obama’s nominee to head the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice.  Sen. Ted Cruz was one of the most outspoken critics of the appointment, saying it was insulting to law enforcement officers everywhere:

“Mr. President, this is insulting to law enforcement officers everywhere,” Cruz said. “I stand with the Fraternal Order of Police in opposition to Debo Adegbile.”

In his speech, Cruz stressed Adegbile’s role in Abu-Jamal’s case wasn’t about proving innocence or guilt, but about volunteering as his advocate in the name of race. During a pro-Mumia event in 2011, LDF attorneys expressed the great “honor” they felt in representing him.

“We all should agree that violent criminals should be punished and we all should agree that those who go out of their way to celebrate, to lionize, convicted cop killers are not suitable for major leadership roles at the Department of Justice,” Cruz said. “Under Adegbile’s supervision, LDF lawyers fanned the flames of racial tension through rallies and protests and a media campaign all to portray Mumia Abu-Jamal, an unrepentant cop killer, as a political prisoner.”

It’s outrageous that Obama would even suggest this guy, let alone actually nominate him.

I’m glad the Senate had the common sense to deny his appointment.

Here’s Cruz’s speech:
