Palin: Release Names of Top Republicans Who Encouraged You to ‘Trash’ Cruz

On Sunday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called on Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace to release the names of the “top Republicans” that sent him opposition research on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to “hammer” Cruz before his appearance on the program to discuss defunding Obamacare.

“Keep it TRULY fair & balanced,” Palin tweeted. “Release the GOP names encouraging you to trash @SenTedCruz. No more anonymous sources.”

On Sunday, Wallace said that establishment Republicans are so worked up that Cruz is leading the defund Obamacare fight that he immediately got unsolicited questions and research on Cruz from “top Republicans” before Cruz’s appearance.

In an appearance on Washington D.C.’s Fox 5 to preview his Sunday show, Wallace said, “I will tell you I have never in my time in Washington seen a party so upset with one of its own members.”

In an exclusive op-ed for Breitbart News on Saturday, Palin urged Cruz to stay strong in the face of the inevitable backlash from fellow Republicans and suggested they compare “shiv marks” the next time they meet:

“We’re now, once again, subjected to the “anonymous sources” backstabbing game. The Capitol Hill cowards are rushing to anonymously denounce Senator Cruz to any reporter with a pad and pen.

Welcome to our world, Ted. The same people have been denouncing conservatives like me for years (right after they ask for help fundraising for themselves or endorsing the latest candidate they’ve suckered into paying their exorbitant consulting fees). We can compare shiv marks next time we meet, my friend.”
