Ted Cruz had advance warning of alleged Hezbollah ties at Christian conference

On Wednesday, hours before the event, a story came out that detailed the issues with the conference in the Washington Free Beacon.
But according to a conservative political operative who is close to the incident, Cruz’s team found about the alleged links between the Lebanese Shia terrorist group Hezbollah and some of the event’s speakers on Tuesday evening, the night before he was scheduled to speak.
Other members of Congress — Sen. Mark Kirk, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and Rep. Ted Deutch — were also scheduled to appear at the summit, but pulled out when they learned the information beforehand.
