Kamala Harris: Justice Dept. has 'no choice' but to charge Trump if he loses in 2020

Politico

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said the Justice Department would have “no choice” but to charge President Donald Trump with obstruction of justice if he finished his term without being impeached.

Speaking with NPR’s Scott Detrow in an interview published Wednesday, Harris said special counsel Robert Mueller essentially set the stage for criminal charges against Trump with his investigation into the 2016 election. Longstanding Justice Department policy says that a sitting president cannot be indicted, and Harris said that was essentially the only reason Mueller did not charge Trump.

All that would change in 2021 if the Democratic presidential hopeful were in the White House and the Justice Department were under her watch, she said.

“I believe that they would have no choice, and that they should,” Harris said of the Justice Department’s charging Trump with obstruction. “I believe there should be accountability. Everyone should be held accountable. And the president is not above the law.”

1. You mean she won't look forward instead of back?

 

Presidents have done worse things and not stood trial.

2. If anyone deserves it, it's trump. But generally against one Admin going after a previous one,

 

especially for what could be -- and likely would be -- trumped up charges.
