Kamala Harris Refuses To Give Direct Answer After Being Asked If Trump Should Face Criminal Charges

Vice President Kamala Harris declined to give a direct answer on Wednesday morning when she was asked if former President Donald Trump should face criminal charges for his alleged role in the Capitol riots last month.

Kamala Harris Interviewed On ‘Today’

“The president was acquitted in the Senate trial,” said “Today” host Savannah Guthrie. “Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, though, had some harsh words, saying he didn’t get away with anything yet, and that civil and criminal liability was still a possibility. I ask you — do you think that President Trump should be criminally charged?”

“You know, right now, Savannah, I’m focused on what we need to do to get relief to American families, and that is my highest priority,” Harris replied. “It is our administration’s highest priority. It is our job. It is the job we were elected to do, and that’s my focus.”

“But you’re a former prosecutor, so I have got to ask you, is that a strong case against the president, a criminal case that Mitch McConnell had raised as a possibility?” Guthrie pressed on.

“I haven’t reviewed the case through the lens of being a prosecutor,” Harris responded, dodging the question again. “I’m reviewing the case of COVID in America through the lens of being the vice president of America.”

Harris’ Past Comments Come Back To Haunt Her

Harris found herself in some hot water during Trump’s impeachment trial when past comments that she had made came back to haunt her, as Republicans claimed that she had incited violence in the past as well by encouraging racial riots and bailing out protests.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went so far as to say that if Republicans take back the House, Harris could find herself being impeached,  based on the precedent Democrats set with their latest effort against Trump.

“If you use this model, I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House, because she actually bailed out rioters and one of the rioters went back to the streets and broke somebody’s head open,” Graham said, according to Newsweek. “So we’ve opened Pandora’s Box here, and I’m sad for the country.”

  • I recall that during WWII, democrat president Franklin Roosevelt and Truman after, both maintained segregated armed forces. There were two civil rights bills passed by republicans and president Eisenhower. The 1964 civil rights bill would never passed if it were not for the republican votes. It is on record that Johnson had to promise to pass pet projects and a lot of pork to get some democrat votes. Democrats were the only party to elect a Senator that was a high ranking KKK member, who served many, many years in office. Oh, he was a friend of Bill Hillary and a host of democrats. Finally, democrats figured if they were ever to win again, they had to promise the world to Gays, Atheists, liberals, leftists, unions, baby killers, criminals and illegal immigrants. Blacks have also been used. Again democrats threw out money and more money, Promises and promises Unfortunately they did not offer good paying jobs. Without good jobs the problem of being raised out of poverty can not and will not end.

  • Trump is a "Root of Evil like Hitler and Stalin of Germany? His a fooooooooooooool but God pay back all his lies, fears and hate now and forever? Period. Unfit to be president? No Care people at all! Only care about his fraud business and his family? Sad and Shameful around the world! Amen.

  • Wow? You are Satan created you? Just shut your mouth up and God will pay you back for you racist peoples? Cause problem and God will give you a bad curse in your life forever, Include your kids, and your family? Amen
