    EXCLUSIVE — Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is demanding access to all
    communications between the Department of Justice and the American
    Medical Association (AMA), which last week asked the attorney general
    to investigate and prosecute alleged "disinformation campaigns" against gender-altering surgeries for minors.

    In a Monday evening letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland obtained exclusively by Fox News Digital, Cruz accused the department of a
    "continued pattern of abusing its investigative authority to police the
    speech of Americans and stifle ongoing policy debates," He said the
    Oct. 3 letter from the AMA raises the possibility that the DOJ will try
    to act on that request by taking action against people who openly
    criticize gender-related surgeries.

    "This request by advocacy organizations to have the federal government
    stifle critical speech on their behalf would have been unthinkable
    before your tenure as Attorney General." Cruz wrote. But he said the
    Biden administration has supported these kinds of efforts in the past.
