In the far-ranging interview, Harris vigorously attacked President Trump and Republicans on civil rights, health care, and the courts.

“People are scared,” Harris told Maddow.

“The Senate makes decisions about who will be in these lifetime positions on these courts,” Harris said, appearing to acknowledge the current confirmation hearings for President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett.

“Right now, we don’t have the majority in the Senate,” Harris went on, referring to Republican having control of the Senate currently.

“And so what have we seen?” said Harris. “With Donald Trump and this Senate, we have seen nominations — because I’ve been there. I’ve witnessed it on the Judiciary Committee. I mentioned this in the debate — Rachel, 50 nominations and confirmations to the United States Court of Appeals for lifetime — lifetime appointments.”

“Do you know of the 50, not one person is black?” Harris declared.
