Ben Carson Will Have Conservatives Cheering with ‘Terrific’ Plan for Ted Cruz to Go After Hillary

The day after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz pulled out of the 2016 presidential race, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson began lobbying for Cruz’s next gig to be in President Donald Trump’s administration.

During a Wednesday interview on Fox News Radio, Carson proposed a career path that helps Cruz check a number of boxes:

“I think he would be terrific on the Supreme Court, or I think he would be a terrific Attorney General.

Or he could be both. He could be Attorney General first, you know, go ahead and prosecute Hillary, and then go on the Supreme Court.”

For Clinton, the FBI’s investigation into whether she forwarded classified information in a way that put the country at risk during her tenure as Secretary of State is ongoing.

“The urgency is to do it well and promptly. And ‘well’ comes first,” FBI Direct James Comey told local law enforcement agents in Buffalo, N.Y. on Monday, according to the Niagara Gazette.

Hillary Clinton answers questions from reporters March 10, 2015 at the United Nations in New York. Clinton admitted Tuesday that she made a mistake in choosing for convenience not to use an official email account when she was secretary of state. But, in remarks to reporters after attending a United Nations event, she insisted that her email set-up had been properly secure and that she had turned over all professional communications to the State Department.

Late last month, the FBI began setting up official interviews with some of Clinton’s closest and longest aides. For an investigation that has taken longer than a year thus far, “promptly” doesn’t seem to be a high priority for the FBI.

But Carson “and some other folks” will make up a committee for Trump to consult in selecting his own pick for vice president, the Republican told the New York Times this week.

Carson himself isn’t up for the roll. He told Fox News Radio:

“You saw the reaction of particularly the left-wing media to me. I represent everything that they are against, and there would be so much attention on that, and I think it would just distract from what needs to be done.”

“I wouldn’t advise him to pick me,” Carson said, adding that Trump should select someone “willing and able to take a significant part of the load.”
