“May I ask you, you said earlier that no one in favor of the Democratic Party abolishing police. If so, why are all Democrats the third-largest candidate for the Justice Ministry? He voted in favor of Vanita Gupta, who said in writing last year that he insisted on the abolition of police.
Ms. Gupta was appointed Deputy Secretary of Justice for the United States after serving as Director of Civil Rights at the Department of Justice under the Obama administration. Clark will take over the post. Mr. Cruz then aimed at Mr. Clark, calling her “another extremist” and claiming to support the abolition of police.
“As you know, Senator Cruz, that’s a complete distortion of their position,” replied Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut’s leading Democratic Party.
Cruz, along with Trump’s supporter Tom Cotton, asked Clark about Newsweek’s editorial, “I have charged police killings,” at a Senate-approved hearing in April. Fund the police – but be strategic. “
In response, Ms. Clark gave the headline a misleading version of her view, she said, “to police activities that make African Americans more vulnerable to police violence and contribute to mass imprisonment. He said he would support the suspension of funding. “
