Franken has been a critic of the Republican attorney general nominee, Sen. Jeff Sessions, and is planning to vote against him. At a hearing last month, Franken confronted Sessions about a questionnaire the Alabama senator filled out as AG nominee, with Franken charging that Sessions exaggerated his leadership and involvement in 1980s-era civil rights cases.
Cruz later called out Franken, saying he thought it was rude. Franken was not present when Cruz made those comments.
