Ted Cruz Stands By Claim Mitch McConnell Lied


Thursday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” in a preview clip of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) town hall, while discussing when he accused Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), of lying back in July, Cruz declared every word he said “was true and accurate.”

Cruz’s echoed the sentiment he had shared in a CNN interview last week, in which he refused to apologize to McConnell for the accusation.

Partial transcript as follows:

TODD: You called the senate majority leader a liar on the senate floor. That’s not sat well with your colleagues. Do you regret calling him a liar on the senate floor?

CRUZ: You know Washington is an amazing place. when somebody stands up and lies to you, someone else points out that they lied…

TODD: He lied to you. You still stand by …

CRUZ: Every word I said was true and accurate. No one has disputed a word I said. The reaction in the senate is, how dare you say that out loud. They’re not upset somebody lied to them. That’s the amazing thing.

TODD: That’s the thing, How do you stand working with somebody who lies to you? How can you work with them going forward?

CRUZ: What I have done from day one, it’s a promise  I made to people who elected me, I’m going to tell the truth, and I’m going to do what I said I would do.
