Kamala Harris Was Not a ‘Progressive Prosecutor’
The New York Times ^ | Jan. 17, 2019 | Lara Bazelon

SAN FRANCISCO — With the growing recognition that prosecutors hold the keys to a fairer criminal justice system, the term “progressive prosecutor” has almost become trendy. This is how Senator Kamala Harris of California, a likely presidential candidate and a former prosecutor, describes herself.

But she’s not.

Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.

It seems that the great Hindu Jamaican Presidential Hope has made a few enemies on the Left. It should be an entertaining Democratic Primary.

This will be fun watching dumb as nails Kamala Harris go even further left than she already is to pacify the dumb as nails RAT electorate. Can eating too much popcorn be all that bad for you? 😀

The New York Time is trying to disarm the American public about the true nature of Kamala Harris. She is a true progressive Communist.

Probably Gillibrand. East Coasters love their elites.

Gillibrand is being treated like a rock star in Iowa while Harris is begging any Dems to be interested.

Harris’ campaign likely begins and ends in California with nothing in between.

The tri fecta candidates are as follows, a women, black and arrogant.
As with the a##hat because he was black and could do no wrong this setup is even worse. Just look a Sheila Jackson lee and Maxine waters they can say and do what they please and no one will attempt to confront them

First Bernie and now Willie’s girl. Both have to be considered leading contenders for the RAT nomination for president. I’m guessing if this pattern holds ol Uncle Joe is next. Who in the RAT Party might have it out for them? Hmm... 🤔

She claims to be such a tough and fair prosecutor. I’d like to see someone ask her why she kept accusing Justice Kavanaugh of being a serial rapist even though there was absolutely no evidence.

You’re in the right state, but the person with the initials HRC might be the more likely source.

Could be the Old Grey Lady’s money is on Julian Castro, and is starting early on winnowing the oppo. Interesting coincidence—didn’t DAVOS happen this past weekend? I wonder who THEY will be backing. Guess we’ll find out.

HRC is indeed a wild card. If she actually makes a move to run, it will be a Dem civil war.

This is how the Communists work. They are the Kangaroo Court of justice. The Duke University players were convicted without the truth, Kavanaugh was convicted without the truth, President Trump is being convicted without the truth and now the Covington kids are being convicted without the truth. If they would have their way, they would have people lynched like the old Democrat KKK thugs did in the south. This mindset has been going on too long and it is entrenched in the Demoncraps.
