Flashback: Hillary Clinton Donors Met With Kamala Harris About Entering National Stage
Presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris met with Hillary Clinton donors as far back as 2017 in an effort to “expand her influence and ambitions” on the national stage.
A New York Post report released just seven months after becoming a United States senator from California shows that Harris met with some of Clinton’s “biggest backers.”
According to the Post, she met several top donors at the home of Michael Kempner, who served as Clinton’s national-finance co-chair and was a top bundler for her 2008 bid for the presidency.
“Senator Harris has made a strong impression in her first months as senator,” Kempner told InsiderNJ at the time. “So, I’m excited to host her and see firsthand why so many people I respect are fans of hers.”
Kempner denied the meeting in 2017 was any indication of his support for Harris holding higher office.
But a Democrat insider, according to the Post, said the event was a clear effort to expand her profile.
“Kamala is the big Democratic star right now, at a time when they badly need a star,” they were quoted as saying. “She’s coming to the Hamptons to meet key people as she takes a national stage, and expands her influence and ambitions.”
“Harris is already said to be the Democrats’ top fund-raiser and is being talked about as a 2020 presidential hopeful,” the report added.
Additionally, Kempner held another party in the Hamptons last August as the California Democrat made a push at the debates, due in large part to her effort in casting Joe Biden, her current running mate, as a racist.

Clinton’s Mark Is On the Biden-Harris Ticket
It seems quite clear that Clinton donors have been seeking to expand Harris’ role almost immediately after Clinton’s stunning loss in the 2016 election.
Biden’s insistence on selecting a woman and a minority as his running mate, rather than the most qualified individual for the job, helped the pieces fall into place.
An extension of the Clinton campaign would be bad enough, but Harris has demonstrated she’s far more radical than Hillary might ever dream of being.
From co-sponsoring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s $93 trillion Green New Deal to proposing banning fracking and banning private health insurance, Harris has certainly earned the title of radical.
In February of 2019, she voted no on providing medical attention to babies who survive abortion.
Kamala Harris blocked the Senate from voting to protect babies born alive after botched abortions.
Kamala supports abortion up to the moment of birth.
Kamala abused her power as CA AG to target journalist who exposed PP’s aborted baby body part business.
Kamala is a radical.

She has also expressed interest in allowing the Boston Marathon bomber to vote from prison.
Biden’s selection of Harris to be his running mate completes the left-wing takeover of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party. The connection to Clinton’s donors means the radical revolution they’re trying to implement is well-funded.
