Election 2020

Kamala Harris Declares That She’ll Prosecute Trump if She’s Elected

Senator from California has a plan well before 2020 — 'there has to be accountability'

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) (shown above, far right) insists that her Department of Justice, should she be elected president, would pursue obstruction of justice charges against Donald Trump.

“I believe that they would have no choice and that they should, yes,” Harris said during an NPR politics podcast.

The comments echo those of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who recently said she “want[s] to see him [Trump] in prison” — and former congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), who said he would also prosecute the president if he wins the White House.

Not one of them can help but avoid saying something completely crazy, in our view. When one Democrat goes off the rails, others all jump in line and dive off the cliff behind them.

“There has to be accountability,” Harris blathered on. “I mean look, people might, you know, question why I became a prosecutor. Well, I’ll tell you one of the reasons — I believe there should be accountability. Everyone should be held accountable, and the president is not above the law.”

Describing the Supreme Court building, Harris said, “On one side etched in the marble are the words ‘equal justice under law.’ It doesn’t say ‘except for the president.’ There you go.”

Somebody should have asked her if she’ll be prosecuting Hillary Clinton — whom Bill Maher recently explained obstructed justice as well.

Harris knows full well she has no grounds for which to have the Department of Justice pursue charges against the president.

This is her “lock him up” campaign push; she’s desperate to get her name out there to a base that might not want to see the Establishment in Joe Biden garner the Democrat nomination in 2020.

One has to wonder if Harris made these comments about prosecuting Donald Trump after smoking something, in our view. After all, she believes marijuana “gives a lot of people joy.”

As would seeing the president go to jail, in her line of thinking.

Her record as a prosecutor has been peppered with controversy as well, making it likely she’d bring incompetence to a DOJ under her administration as well.

The lunacy of Harris in this campaign doesn’t end with her wanting to abuse the power of the DOJ to jail a political opponent.

She has supported Bernie Sanders in his call to allow terrorists the right to vote.

And she has co-sponsored a bill that would allow illegal immigrants to work as staffers or interns in Congress.

Her record as a prosecutor has been peppered with controversy as well, making it likely she’d bring incompetence to a DOJ under her administration as well.

A 2010 video shows Harris gleefully relaying a story about jailing minority parents if their kids skipped school.

As California attorney general, she ignored an accusation and lawsuit alleging sexual harassment by a top aide in her office, a case that ultimately led to a $400,000 settlement and the resignation of that aide, who had been described as one of Harris’s closest professional confidantes.

Now she wants to jail the president of the United States over random snippets in a two-year investigation on the Russia collusion hoax.
