Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz wants the Department of Justice to investigate Saturday’s attack that killed one woman in Charlottesville, Va. as an incident of domestic terrorism.
In a statement released Saturday night, Cruz called the incident “tragic and heartbreaking” and said the Justice Department must be involved immediately.
