Biden likens Hawley to Nazi propagandist Goebbels. ‘Shameful,’ says Missouri senator

But in a statement to KSDK, the 41-year-old senator was unrepentant about his role in challenging Biden's electoral college victory. Ted Cruz, who like Hawley, drew significant criticism for pushing ahead with the Electoral College challenge.

During the KTRK interview, Cruz said Trump's rhetoric on Wednesday urging supporters to march to the Capitol "crossed a line" and it was "reckless". The mob's attempt to prevent Congress from tallying electoral votes certifying Joe Biden's November 3 win rankled lawmakers, including some Trump loyalists, and left four people dead: one from gunfire and three from medical emergencies.

Cruz was one of the more vocal opponents to the results of the November 3 election, pledging to vote against results that showed former Vice President Joe Biden would be the 46 president of the United States.

"I do think the president's rhetoric and his language has been over the line", Cruz said.

Also Stewart - who has been silent about who is to blame for the Capitol violence - tweeted Friday, "The perpetrators responsible for this week's attack must be found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law".

Cruz on Twitter posted a message of condolence for the police officer, Brian Sicknick, who died as a result of his injuries on Wednesday.

"This was a stunt", the Nebraska Republican said. Ultimately, six senators objected to Arizona and seven objected to Pennsylvania.

And many Missourians, including former allies of Hawley, are livid. "Hawley's political patron, former Sen". But Hawley has not responded to our request for comment. A home-state newspaper editorial board declared he has "blood on his hands". John Danforth told The Associated Press on Thursday. (It's pretty typical for publishers to await the nonpartisan exodus in time for later releases-even if the book isn't necessarily tied to their time in office, as is the case with Hawley.) But now (!), Simon & Schuster seems to be drawing somewhat of a line.

A major donor to Missouri Republicans who funneled millions into supporting the first election campaign for Sen. "That's my job, and I will keep doing it", he said.

"We did not come to this decision lightly", Simon & Shuster said in a statement. It's a direct assaults on the First Amendment. The publisher also criticized Hawley's actions on Capitol Hill. Before Wednesday, there was speculation of his possibly running for president in that year.

Not unsurprisingly, the strongest rebukes on the social media platform came from Democratic lawmakers in Congress, including Representatives Cori Bush, D-Mo., Joaquín Castro, D-Texas, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

"He has now revealed himself as a political opportunist willing to subvert the Constitution and the ideals of the nation he swore to uphold", Humphreys, president and chief executive of Tamko Building Products, said in a statement to the Missouri Independent. Claire McCaskill in 2018, was once celebrated by the Republican establishment as a rising star.

"He is way more interested in how he can get elected president than serving the people he was elected to serve", she added.
