Kamala Harris 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-CA) who recently said she “want[s] to see him [Trump] in prison” and former congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-Beta) 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 bats*** crazy. When one Democrat goes off the rails, the 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.”
Would a Harris Administration DOJ prosecute former President Trump on obstruction of justice?

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, who 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, desperate to get her name out there to a rabid base that might not want to see the establishment in Joe Biden garner the Democrat nomination in 2020.
Is She Smoking Something?
One has to wonder if Harris made these comments about prosecuting Donald Trump after smoking something. After all, she believes marijuana “gives a lot of people joy.”
As would seeing the President go to jail.
Harris’ lunacy in this campaign doesn’t end with her wanting to abuse the power of the DOJ to jail her 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.
Harris’ 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 AG, she ignored an accusation and lawsuit alleging sexual harassment by a top aide in her office, a case which 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.
