Kamala Harris on Pence needing a chaperone for meetings with women

Andrea Mitchell @mitchellreports
@KamalaHarris on Pence: I disagree when he suggests it's not possible to have meetings with women alone by himself. I think that's ridiculous, the idea that you would deny a professional woman the opportunity to have a meeting with the VP is outrageous. #AMR

1. I'm still waiting for Harris explanation

 


As to why she protected Mnuchin and his bank. Quid pro quo.

2. google is your friend

 

...on that widely discussed issue.


Daily Kos:

First and foremost, letís point out that of all the attorney generals and elected representatives in the country during the financial crisis, there was ONE who chose to investigate and who went after the banks for a settlement. That was Kamala Harris. She didnít get any prosecutions or convictions, but she did strong-arm the banks into turning a $2 billion settlement proposal into $25 billion of immediate payments.

This canít be overlooked. Sen. Harris was entirely responsible for pulling out of negotiations in 2011 in order to force the banks to pay more. And it worked. So before you get all high and mighty about how you would have for sure jailed some bankers, weigh what good it did California families to get $25 billion compared to what they would have gotten from watching a complex civil proceeding play out over five years.

She got money to people losing their homes, and that was more important.

On the OneWest issue, itís a misnomer (ie, lie) that Harris ďdidnít prosecute Mnuchin.Ē He was never under investigation, and Harris didnít receive a referral to criminally prosecute anyone. What she got was a recommendation to file a civil enforcement action against OneWest. In such a filing, no one person is accused of anything. Instead, an entire company is looked at, and perhaps fined for wrongdoing.

So why didnít she file the action? Well, Senator Harris isnít exactly free to openly discuss that, because we donít openly discuss investigations. Itís not appropriate to discuss partial evidence, suspicions, or rumors. This harms the party under investigation, who has a right to a presumption of innocence.

But the reasons this didnít go anywhere are likely far simpler...

5. Good research, thanks. There's always a sensible reason why some things don't appear to happen.
