Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) says he would pardon David Daleiden, the man who filmed the undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s alleged practice of selling aborted fetuses.

From Life News:

Cruz made the pledge after he was asked about David Daleiden’s case Wednesday night on the Fox News program the Kelly File.

“Yes,” Cruz said firmly. “As a Texan, as a Houstonian, I was deeply dismayed and disappointed to see the Harris County district attorney bringing criminal charges against someone who went undercover to expose what appears to be vast criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood. I think he did an incredible public service.”

“I’ve pledged on the very first day in office to open an investigation into Planned Parenthood and to prosecute any and all criminal conduct by that organization.”
