Long Before John Boehner Called Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh,’ He Called Him His Lawyer

maxresdefaultBy Sean Sullivan. It’s doubtful that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will be taking political advice from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) in the near future. But legal advice? Well, it’s happened before.

“Ted Cruz used to be my attorney a long time ago. A good guy. I don’t always agree with him, but he’s a good guy,” Boehner told Jay Leno Thursday on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

Say what? Yes, the tea party firebrand and the establishment GOP leader who don’t see eye to eye were once on the same team back in the late 1990s . . .

Cruz didn’t stay with Boehner’s case long, reported David Mark of Politix. The legal battle lingered for years. If you’re wondering how it turned out, a federal judge sided with Boehner in 2004. In 2008, the judge awarded Boehner more than $1 million in legal fees. (Read more from “Long Before John Boehner Called Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh,’ He Called Him His Lawyer” HERE)


John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the Flesh,” “Miserable” SOB

By Reena Flores. John Boehner sounded off a litany of insults for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz Wednesday night, labelling the Texas senator “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends,” the former House speaker said during a frank on-stage discussion at Stanford University Wednesday. “I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

Boehner, who retired from Congress at the end of October, also let loose on the two other GOP candidates in the race . . .

Later, Cruz slammed the former House speaker and said he had “never worked with John Boehner.

“The truth of the matter is — I don’t know the man,” Cruz said at a press conference in Indiana. “I’ve met John Boehner two or three times in my life. If I have said 50 words in my life to John Boehner I’d be surprised, and every one of them has consisted of pleasantries.” (Read more from “John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the Flesh,” “Miserable” SOB” HERE)
