Ted Cruz On Jeff Sessions Testimony During Confirmation Hearings: 'It's A Nothing Burger'

Ted Cruz was on Morning Joe (again!) and was asked about Attorney General Jeff Sessions testimony before the Senate during his confirmation hearings, as it related to any discussions he had with Russian officials.

Here is what Cruz had to say about it:

There is the likelihood enough pressure will come down on Sessions that he will recuse himself from any investigation but the idea that Sessions purposely lied or committed perjury is preposterous.
