Cruz Said Harvard Law Faculty Wanted Overthrow of U.S.

Jane Mayer reports that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a 1995 graduate of Harvard Law School, gave a speech several years ago in which he accused a dozen professors of being communists who were committed to "overthrowing the United States government."

Said Cruz: "There were fewer declared Republicans in the faculty when we were there than Communists! There was one Republican. But there were twelve who would say they were Marxists who believed in the Communists overthrowing the United States government."

He added that President Obama "would have made a perfect president of Harvard Law School."
