There’s Another New Justin Amash Fan: Kamala Harris
Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is the darling of the Democrats after using the biased Mueller report as an excuse to agitate against Donald Trump. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the race-baiting presidential contender who is lagging in the polls, is the latest prominent liberal to gush over Amash and his Never Trumping.
During an MSNBC town hall that took place yesterday, she began by echoing Amash’s exact talking points on the supposed issue of obstruction, arguing that Trump deserves to be removed from office because he allegedly interfered with FBI spook Robert Mueller’s fishing expedition that ultimately found no evidence of Russian collusion.
“There is a clear track record of this president and members of his administration obstructing justice,” Harris said.
“Not to mention what we have seen from the current attorney general of the United States, who I questioned in connection with the Judiciary Committee, who clearly thinks his job is to represent the president and his peculiar interests as opposed to representing the people of the country in which we live. So there is a lot of work to do and I plan on seeing it through,” she added.
After that, host Lawrence O’Donnell – an avowed socialist – noted that Amash had “gone beyond” anything proposed by Democratic leadership. This prompted Harris to heap praise upon the libertarian Republican for doing the dirty work even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refuses to do.
“What he has done is what we need more people in the United States Congress to do, which is to put country before party,” Harris responded.
Harris’ criminal justice record is consistent with the abuses of the Mueller probe from her days as a District Attorney.
She used prosecutorial overreach to punish parents of truant students criminally, expanded the unconstitutional practice of civil asset forfeiture, mishandled evidence that resulted in 600 drug cases being dismissed, and had a lurid affair with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown to advance her career prospects.
With Amash supporting a Mueller probe that involved framing Trump adviser George Papadopoulous, trapping patriotic Gen. Mike Flynn, abusing gun rights activist Maria Butina, and many other heinous abuses, it is no surprise that someone with Harris’ record would take a shine to the anti-Trump Republican.
Harris isn’t the only leftist who has contracted Amash fever. He has been praised by Hollywood celebrities, Democratic organizing fronts, and mainstream media hacks for turning against his political party and the rule of law.
