Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, R, speaking during attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing on Tuesday, accused "the Democrats on this committee" of being "silent" when the Obama administration politicized the Department of Justice over the last eight years.

During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Cruz rattled off a number of examples.

"When the Department of Justice used Operation Choke Point to target legal businesses because they disagreed politically with those businesses, the Democrats on this committee were silent," Cruz said. "When the Obama Justice Department sent millions of dollars of taxpayer monies to sanctuary cities that were defying federalimmigration law, the Democrats on this committee were silent."
