WATCH: Ted Cruz Squirms After Being Reminded That There’s No Proof of 2020 Election Fraud

In an effort to keep from ever answering tough questions, Republican lawmakers typically avoid non right-wing cable networks like the plague. So some credit is due to Ted Cruz for willing to go on CBS’ Face the Nation this weekend.

WASHINGTON, DC – SEPTEMBER 30: U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questions former FBI Director James Comey, who was appearing remotely, at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 30, 2020 in Washington, DC. Comey was testifying in the committee’s probe into the origins of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. (Photo by Ken Cedeno-Pool/Getty Images)

But Cruz, as is his nature, attempted to squirm out of any kind of tough questioning. Margaret Brennan, though, didn’t give him an out, calling out the lack of evidence for election fraud.

Cruz attempted to claim, “Under the Constitution, Congress has a role and has a responsibility when it comes to certifying votes. And what I did, I brought together a group of 11 senators, and we objected — to call for an electoral commission to review the claims of voter fraud. And to assess, and make a determination to consider the evidence. And there’s a strong historical precedent for that.”

Brennan pressed, “You know that what you’re laying out as an intellectualized argument here is not what people gathered and chanting [against people] like Mike Pence were talking about. You know that.”

After some deflection by Cruz, the host continued, “Senator, there is no evidence of fraud that would have really drawn the outcome of the election into doubt. You know that.”
