Proving that Democrats don’t take their role as Senators seriously, California Senator Kamala Harris is refusing to even talk with the White House when they reached out to her to discuss the Supreme Court confirmation process and the nominee.
Fox News reports that Harris’s office told the White House they didn’t even want to talk to them.
Sen. Kamala Harris’ office bluntly rejected a courtesy call from the White House in the run-up to Monday’s Supreme Court nomination, according to a senior White House aide.
According to the account, the Democratic California senator’s 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.
This is no less a violation of Harris’ duties as a Senator.
