Ted Cruz does not mince words about Charlottesville

Justice Department opens civil-rights investigation into Charlottesville crash

Justice Department opens civil-rights investigation into Charlottesville crash

The FBI and federal prosecutors said they've began a civil rights investigation after a vehicle crashed into a crowd Saturday in Charlottesville.

Late Saturday night, the FBI in Richmond, Va. said it had opened an investigation. A 32-year-old woman was killed when 20-year old James Alex Fields Jr.of OH plowed into counter protesters. Later a helicopter responding to the violence crashed outside the city, killing two state police troopers. "U.S. Attorney Rick Mountcastle has commenced a federal investigation and will have the full support of the Department of Justice", Sessions' statement read, concluding, "Justice will prevail".

Cruz called the violent clashes surrounding white nationalists and counter-protesters "acts of domestic terrorism".

The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate. Now, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is demanding the Department of Justice investigate the auto crash as an act of domestic terrorism. Other congressional leaders and Attorney General Jeff Sessions also condemned the bigotry and violence; with Sessions saying it was antithetical to American values.

"When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and can not be tolerated", Sessions said in a press statement.

"Heidi's and my prayers are with the loved ones of those killed and injured in the ongoing violence in Charlottesville", Cruz said in the statement.
