During his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee this Monday, attorney general nominee Merrick Garland took questions from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who immediately harkened back to the Obama years.

Cruz criticized what he sees as a "politicized and weaponized" Justice Department during Obama's tenure that the Republican senator alleges was used to target political opponents, namely Donald Trump.

"So it is very much my hope, if you're confirmed as attorney general, that you will bring that reputation for integrity to the Department of Justice and demonstrate a willingness to stand up to what will be inevitable political pressure to once again politicize the Department of Justice and use it as a tool to attack the political opponents of the current administration," Cruz said to Garland.

But according to some of Cruz's critics on Twitter, he's sounding like a broken record.
