Kamala Harris Says Americans Will ‘Demand Justice’ Against Trump


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Vice President Kamala Harris went off the rails and showed her true colors as she went off on former President Donald Trump and what she believes Americans will want to happen to him.

The vice president said that she believes Americans are going to “demand justice” after the FBI recovered, what it says, were classified files at his Mar-a-Lago residence.


The comments came during a wide ranging interview on Sunday when she appeared on the NBC show “Meet The Press.”

“How much should President — former President Trump’s status as a former president and a potential 2024 candidate, how much should that factor into the decision to charge him?” the host said.

“Well, I wouldn’t dare tell the Department of Justice what to do. As a former prosecutor, I will tell you, I’ve — my — I am not in the business of telling a prosecutor what to do with their case because they know best the facts and the evidence as applied to the law. And so I’m not going to tell them what to do. And certainly the president and I and our administration, unlike the previous administration, have been very, very careful to make sure that there is no question about any kind of interference in terms of the decisions that the Department of Justice makes in that regard,” the vice president said.

“But let’s — let me, let me try to go to 60,000 feet. What do you say to the argument that it would be too divisive for the country to prosecute a former president?” the host said.

“I think that our country is a country that has gone through different periods of time where the unthinkable has happened, and where there has been a call for justice, and justice has been served. And I think that’s potentially going to always be the case in our country that people are going to demand justice and they rightly do,” she said.

It came in the same interview where she tore into the Supreme Court.

“How much confidence do you have in the Supreme Court?” host Chuck Todd said to the vice president.

“I think this is an activist court,” she said.


“What does that mean?” the host said.

“It means that we had an established right for almost half a century, which is the right of women to make decisions about their own body as an extension of what we have decided to be, the privacy rights to which all people are entitled. And this court took that constitutional right away, and we are suffering as a nation because of it,” she said.

“That causes me great concern about the integrity of the court overall. Especially as someone who my life was inspired by people like Thurgood Marshall, and by the work on that court of Earl Warren to bring an unanimous court to pass Brown v. Board of Education,” the vice president said.


“This is the court that on once sat Earl Warren, Thurgood Marshall and Sandra Day O’Connor. It’s a very different court,” she said.


On Friday, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts tore into opponents of the court who believe it has become partisan and political, which includes Vice President Kamala Harris and other prominent Democrats.

“If the court doesn’t retain its legitimate function of interpreting the Constitution, I’m not sure who would take up that mantle. You don’t want the political branches telling you what the law is, and you don’t want public opinion to be the guide about what the appropriate decision is,” he said at an event on Friday night, The Guardian reported.

They were his first public comments since the Supreme Court end the 1973 Roe V Wade precedent.
