Sen. Kamala Harris office bluntly rejected a courtesy call from the White House in the run-up to Mondays Supreme Court nomination, according to a senior White House aide.
According to the account, the Democratic California senators office told White House Counsel Don McGahn, We want nothing to do with you.
The senator's office has since denied saying that. Asked about the claim, her office confirmed that the senator's chief of staff, though not Harris, spoke with a McGahn aide -- but denied the quote.
But according to the White House, the brusque response came as McGahn reached out to each Senate Judiciary Committee member to discuss the Supreme Court confirmation process. Fox News is told Harris office was the only one to reject the discussion.
The incident underscores the deeply partisan environment surrounding appeals court Judge Brett Kavanaughs nomination.
Republican senators have largely coalesced around him, while many Democrats have vowed from the start to oppose the pick. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said hell fight the nomination with everything I have, warning Kavanaughs presence on the court could threaten abortion rights and more.
Harris, similarly, tweeted that Kavanaugh represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans, vowing to oppose his nomination.

Stay classy, Kamala.
What I almost just wrote probably would have got me banned for foul language.
Fine. If she won’t be civil to him in her office, then he should not accept any questions from her on the Senate floor or in committee..
Willie Brown’s b*tch. Casting couch pol no better than a Weinstein starlet....
Time to record these phone calls.
IMOP, Kavanaugh gains from this because he doesn’t have to waste his time with her. Wish more Democrats did the same.
I believe it
When was she ever classy?
>>Kavanaugh represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans,
A USSC NOMINEE, but not illegal immigration.
How stupid can you get?
“How stupid can you get?”
Careful, Harris may take that as a challenge.
I really hope that this low class floozy is the Rat presidential nominee in 2020.
As I said on another thread, I can hear her now at the Judiciary Vetting .........

Sorry, I usually use a sarcasm tag but I thought it was patently obvious. I should have used a /sarc tag.
Drop the word “allegedly.” This angry privileged member of a government-certified victim group wants to be president. Let’s not let it become that.
