Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) told MSNBC host Willie Geist that Republicans are ‘desperate to protect’ President Donald Trump as House Democrats continue to pursue an impeachment probe into the sitting President. Sen. Harris said she’ll “be there” if the inquiry makes it to the U.S. Senate.
The 2020 presidential hopeful said “it is sad to see the level of desperation that some people are willing to go through to protect someone who has been probably the most corrupt, unethical, most unpatriotic president we’ve ever had.”
Sen. Harris’s Republican colleagues in the Senate, she said are denying obvious quid-pro-quo on the President’s part claiming that “it happened in plain view.”
“I do believe that this is a moment that certainly our framers anticipated and the question for each of us, in particular those of us who took an oath, is to look in the mirror and ask whether knowing what are the foundational ideals of our country are we willing to fulfill our constitutional responsibilities or are we gonna play political games.
In the latest polls, Sen. Harris trails former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. She appeared optimistic however, that voters still have interest in her campaign.
