2020 Democratic presidential candidate and Senator from California Kamala Harris gave an interview with NPR Politics Podcast on Sunday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, that was released for the first time this morning. Kamala has issued an incredible promise that she plans to fulfill if she is elected; putting Donald Trump in prison.
Harris said her administration’s Justice Department would move forward with prosecuting Trump for obstruction of justice. “I believe that they would have no choice and that they should, yes,” Harris told NPR, while backing up her statement with the 10 instances of possible obstruction of justice that former special counsel Robert Mueller gave us in his final report.
This is a huge deal. A potential future president is promising to pursue charges against and put in prison our current “president,” who is of course also her 2020 presidential campaign opponent.?”There has to be accountability,” Harris said. “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.”
“The facts and the evidence will take the process where it leads,” she continued. “I do believe that we should believe Bob Mueller when he tells us essentially that the only reason an indictment was not returned is because of a memo in the Department of Justice that suggests you cannot indict a sitting president. But I’ve seen prosecution of cases on much less evidence.”
What she is saying is true. Trump is being protected by Barr and the GOP controlled Senate. That’s it. If Harris is the nominee and defeats Trump, there is nothing legally stopping her from letting her Justice Department pursue charges. If anything, the available evidence is begging her to do it. “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,” Harris concluded on charges for Trump.
