JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Ted Cruz held up a sheet with all of these cases of child pornography. And every single case, she sentenced below the guidelines and below what prosecutors had requested. That's a pattern and that's a scary pattern. Because why? Why would you sympathize with people who possess child pornography? And when she was asked why, she says, oh, it's Congress' fault. That's B.S. 

I'm also disturbed by, she sympathizes with Gitmo terrorists. Now, in the one case she had to defend the guy because she was a public federal defender, I get that. But then she goes into private practice and writes an amicus brief in support of a Gitmo terrorist. She chose to do that. Now why did she do that? You know what her answer was? She blamed her law partner.
