A couple of short points (because the focus needs to be on his words) about this recording. Initially, when questioned Cruz denied the statement. Secondly, when questioned again by Megyn Kelly (last night) Cruz refused to take ownership of his words. This is a pattern, a long, historic, and very specific pattern. Pay close attention to his words.
Here’s the full audio as referenced in the New York Times article (click orange arrow):
Last point: CTH has a complete research library on Cruz’s activity(ies), associations and intents around Washington DC since January 2013. That meticulous library was/is retained for a very specific reason….. not yet.
