    While it certainly didn't start with this election, traditional decorum is no longer.

    Just said that if it came to it, he'd appoint a special prosecutor...isn't that what he should do based on his personal feelings and comments about her in the past?

    Won't he be the AG? Won't he decide if an investigation happens or not? Will he recuse himself immediately on Jan. 20?
    I thought there was no doubt.

    He can recuse himself by appointing a special prosecutor...the way an AG should do it if they think there could be "Bad Optics" if they make the call.

    You know, like Lynch should have done after being compromised by Bill in the hangar.

    But I know you know this...

    Like Cruz or not but he sure did bring up some very good points there that are not disputable. This is painful I know, but Donald J Trump is your soon to be president Hellcats.

    Ahh I know how it works, but I expected nothing would get in the way of justice after Trump was elected.

    The last good point Cruz brought up was he dropped out of the election.
