(NationRise.com) – Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz compared US President Joe Biden to famous gangsters John Dillinger and Al Capone on June 8. The GOP leader made this comparison during a Fox Business interview after the commander-in-chief said he never took any bribe during his time as vice president.
Talking with host Larry Kudlow, Cruz said the president was unable to deny anything. After all, he said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has a document that reveals a confidential source knew about these alleged bribes.
After that, Kudlow aired a video of President Biden responding to South Carolina Republican Representative Nancy Mace, who accused him of bribery. The clip shows a reporter asking the president his thoughts about Mace’s accusation that he “sold out the country.” President Biden responded this was a “bunch of malarkey.”
Following the clip, Kudlow asked the Texas Senator when the American people will know whether the president took a bribe. Cruz said that the person who knows whether that’s true or not is the president himself. He added that, in case this accusation is false, President Biden should have said so and asked the FBI to release the document. The GOP leader explained this would have been the best way for the commander-in-chief to prove his innocence and clarify everything.
Cruz also told Kudlow that while President Biden should order the agency to release this document, he’s not going to do it. He also said that the commander-in-chief is doing the same as John Dillinger and Capone when they were initially denying the accusations against them. Cruz added that Biden is obliged to be fully transparent, as he’s the president of the United States.
According to a Fox News report, a confidential source told the FBI that President Biden received $5 million from a Burisma executive. This is the Ukrainian natural gas company where the president’s son Hunter Biden used to be a board member. The informant revealed this information to the FBI during an interview in June 2020.
