Vice President Kamala Harris wasn’t about to let NBC News host Chuck Todd get away with suggesting that if the Justice Department prosecutes former president Donald Trump for violating the law by hoarding classified documents, it would be “too divisive.”
In an exclusive interview that will air Sunday on “Meet the Press,” Todd repeatedly tried to get Harris to say that it would be a bad idea to charge Trump.
It began when Todd asked:
“Well, I wouldn’t dare tell the Department of Justice what to do. As a former prosecutor, I will tell you, I’ve — my — I am not in the business of telling a prosecutor what to do with their case because they know best the facts and the evidence as applied to the law. And so I’m not going to tell them what to do. And certainly the president and I and our administration, unlike the previous administration, have been very, very careful to make sure that there is no question about any kind of interference in terms of the decisions that the Department of Justice makes —”
Once again, Todd tried to trip up the VP:
That’s when Harris lowered the boom on Todd:
“I think that our country is a country that has gone through different periods of time where the unthinkable has happened, and where there has been a call for justice, and justice has been served. And I think that’s potentially going to always be the case in our country that people are going to demand justice and they rightly do.”
They most certainly are going to demand justice, especially for a man who has repeatedly dodged having to pay the price for his many alleged crimes.
