The National Enquirer published a story this week claiming evidence of multiple sexual trysts by presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz.
On Friday Ted Cruz blamed Donald Trump and his former consultant Roger Stone for the National Enquirer article on his alleged extramarital affairs.

We assure you it will go viral on every social media platforms in a matter of minutes.”
Anonymous posted this threat on Monday.
