Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz tweet-shamed New York Times “investigative” reporter Eric Lipton on Sunday after Lipton took an ill-advised shot at Cruz for denouncing white nationalists after Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville.

Sen. Cruz minced no words calling the attack an act of “domestic terrorism” and he urged Department of Justice to investigate the attack in a statement he tweeted:

“I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism.” pic.twitter.com/AwJLsfUEHl
