Cruz Wants Investigation (Audio)

Ted Cruz

( – In a long-overdue and highly justified demand, Republican US Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has issued a call for federal law enforcement agencies to delve into the activities of foreign adversaries purportedly financing disruptive behaviors within the United States.

He articulated these concerns during the latest installment of his “Verdict” podcast, which he co-hosts with Ben Ferguson.

The discussion centered around a recent study published by the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI), The Daily Wire reports.

The report, entitled “Contagious Disruption: How CCP Influence and Radical Ideologies Threaten Critical Infrastructure and Campuses Across the United States,” suggests that foreign entities such as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are injecting capital to foster unrest, particularly within academic settings.

Senator Cruz emphatically stated that the insights provided by the report underscore a significant threat to the nation.

“The Department of Justice should be investigating this, the FBI should be investigating this,” underscoring the severity of the situation.

According to Cruz, there is financial backing from multiple fronts contributing to the protests, which are notably anti-American and anti-Israel in nature.

He highlighted the involvement of Communist China and organizations with alleged connections to recognized terrorist groups, including Hamas and Hezbollah.

Cruz expanded on the potential sources of this funding.

“We’ve got money coming from communist China, behind these protests behind these anti-American anti-Israel protests. We’ve got money coming from organizations that have close ties to designated terrorist organizations. And so, whether it is Hamas and Hezbollah pushing this, whether it is affiliated allies of theirs pushing this, whether it is Iran pushing this, or whether it’s Communist China pushing this, the FBI ought to be all over it,” he explained.

Further emphasizing the implications of such interference, Cruz also addressed the presence of foreign students in the United States, who, he suggests, might partake in such disruptive activities.

He proposed a stringent response to any foreign students engaging in overt anti-American actions, such as desecrating the American flag or vocalizing slogans like “Death to America.” Senator Cruz advocates for the deportation of these individuals, maintaining that their behavior on student visas is unacceptable and warrants immediate action.
