CNN’s Van Jones praised the Republican Party’s criminal justice reform efforts, calling it “the leader on this issue,” while speaking that the annual CPAC conference on Thursday.

“Here’s the deal: the conservative movement in this country, unfortunately for my point of view, is now the leader on this issue of [criminal justice] reform,” Jones said.

Jones then highlighted how Republican governors across America have been able to both cut crime rates and the prison population in their states.

“My problem is I now have a conservative movement that, for libertarian reasons, for Christian conservative reasons, and for fiscally conservative reasons, is actually doing a great job on what should be my issue. This is supposed to be my issue. You are stealing my issue,” Jones said. “Take some dadgum credit for being smart. Take some dadgum credit for getting it right.”
