Texas Senator Ted Cruz is royally ticked off – and rightfully so.
Apparently, Reuters knew that Beto O’Rourke was a bad apple during his Senate race in 2018 but said nothing.
Check out Ted’s tweet…
So Reuters had evidence in 2017 that Beto may have committed multiple felonies—which Beto confirmed on the record—but deliberately withheld the story for over a year to help him win his Senate race? But when he’s running against Bernie etc, NOW it’s news?

Here’s more, via Reuters:
Reuters reporter Joseph Menn exclusively revealed on Friday that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke belonged to one of the best-known groups of computer hackers as a teenager.
Within minutes, his special report was the most popular story on Reuters.com here and was picked up by other news outlets. But the origin of the story goes back more than two years.
Members of the group, which calls itself Cult of the Dead Cow, protected O’Rourke’s secret for decades, reluctant to compromise the former Texas Congressman’s political career.
After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.
Cruz knows exactly how to pay for the border wall Democrats so desperately despise.
It won’t even cost the American people a single cent.
The bill is called Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, or EL CHAPO Act.
How could Democrats say no to this?
From Daily Caller:
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz explained how he intends to get notorious drug lord and gangster ‘El Chapo’ to pay for the southern border wall with Mexico.
The bill would designate any money and assets seized from notorious gangster Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and allocate them for the construction of the border wall. El Chapo was extradited to the U.S. in 2017 to face charges related to running one of the most notorious drug cartels in the world.
El Chapo was worth $14 billion at the time of his arrest.
President Trump is only asking for $5 billion.
O’ Rourke thinks America needs to start over with new governing documents.
Beto: “I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work. Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”
O’Rourke is vehemently opposed to building a wall on the southern border.
When asked how America can go about solving the crisis, Beto offered a poignant response: “I don’t know.”
Beto has been caught lying about his mother being a “lifelong Republican” and saying he did not flee the scene of a hit and run accident (he actually did).
