Kamala Harris Says She Would Pursue Trump After He Leaves Office

Democrat Kamala Harris says that if she’s elected president, her Justice Department “would have no choice” but to pursue an obstruction of justice case against President Donald Trump after he leaves office.

The California senator and some other Democrats in the 2020 race are stepping up their calls for congressional Democrats to open an impeachment inquiry.

Harris tells NPR that if Trump isn’t impeached and she wins the White House, the Justice Department should purse an obstruction case based on the findings from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“There has to be accountability,” she says.

Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election identified 10 instances of possible obstruction of justice by Trump. Mueller said he couldn’t conclusively determine Trump had committed a crime or that he hadn’t.



  1. So now she is openly admitting that if she was President she would interfere with the proper function of the Justice Department by ordering a “hit job” on a political rival (or more like take revenge and send a message to all political rivals). Trump never studied law and had no political experience, so he was ignorant when, to quote the NYT back in 2018:

    > President Trump told the White House counsel in the spring that he wanted to order the Justice Department to prosecute two of his political adversaries

    > The lawyer … rebuffed the president, saying that he had no authority to order a prosecution.

    > White House lawyers write a memo for Mr. Trump warning that if he asked law enforcement to investigate his rivals, he could face a range of consequences, including possible impeachment.

    But seeing as how clear this had been made, even in the NYT, how is it possible that this professional politician now in 2019 comes out openly admitting that she will commit impeachable crimes if she was President?
