Pretty rich for Cruz to talk about someone protecting the constitution while he and other Republicans violated their oaths of office to protect and defend it! The all deserve to be removed from their seats!:

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) has been on the outs with many in her party since assuming the role of vice chairwoman of the House Jan. 6 committee and using the perch to criticize former president Donald Trump for his “supreme dereliction of duty” during the insurrection.
You can add Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) to the list of GOP lawmakers with whom Cheney has recently tangled. Late Monday, she took to Twitter to respond to Cotton’s criticism of the Jan. 6 committee during an interview with syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt in which Cotton also acknowledged he hasn’t been watching the hearings in full.
“Hey @SenTomCotton - heard you on @hughhewitt criticizing the Jan 6 hearings,” Cheney tweeted. “Then you said the strangest thing; you admitted you hadn’t watched any of them. Here’s a tip: actually watching them before rendering judgment is more consistent with ‘Anglo-American jurisprudence.’ ”
During his interview with Hewitt, Cotton said Cheney and the other Republican on the Jan. 6 committee, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), “clearly share the views of the Democrats” on the panel, and made the case that if other GOP members were on it, “they would be probing that information and probing witnesses to try to get at truth, which is again what the Anglo-American legal system has done for centuries.”
On Tuesday, one of Cotton’s colleagues, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), offered his endorsement of Harriet Hageman, Cheney’s Trump-backed primary opponent on Aug. 16.
In a tweet, Cruz said Hageman would be a “rock-ribbed conservative congresswoman who will always defend the Constitution.”
