Two Texas billionaires got a $35 million relief loan to keep one of their fracking companies in business after meeting with Sen. Ted Cruz, who then pushed the Trump administration and Federal Reserve to change lending rules to ensure oil and gas firms could benefit, the Wall Street Journal reported. Dan and Farris Wilks are some of the biggest financial backers of Cruz’s political career — the brothers, along with their wives, gave $15 million to his super PAC in 2016.
