Ted Cruz: ‘By Any Measure’ Obama ‘Was Much More Gentle’ on Russia than Trump

‘You and I both recall Obama leaning over on a hot mic and saying just before the 2012 election, tell Vladimir I’ll have a lot more flexibility after the election’

RUSH EXCERPT:
CRUZ: "I think it’s premature for that. I’ve seen the allegations. I want to find out a little bit more about what happened there. I want to learn more than just the allegations in the press. Listen, I will say if you compare objectively president Trump’s policies to Russia compared to President Obama’s policies to Russia, by any measure President Obama was much easier, was much more gentle on Russia. You and I both recall Obama leaning over on a hot mic and saying just before the 2012 election, tell Vladimir I’ll have a lot more flexibility after the election.”
