Kamala Harris: It's Up To DOJ, Not Biden, Whether Trump Gets Indicted
Although President Donald Trump could face legal problems in his absence, Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris insists that charges should not be made on Joe Biden's orders should he become president.
The California Senator told the hosts of "The View" on Monday that, in their election, she and Biden want to give Justice Department attorneys the independence to pursue legal cases that were missing during the Trump administration.
Harris has said that if she were president, she would have no choice but to bring legal obstruction charges against Trump. She also informed the panel that she would turn to Biden on the matter.
Harris also promised that a Biden government would not use the DOJ to prosecute opponents for better or worse.
"We won't have a Justice Department acting as the President's personal advocate like Donald Trump did," she said. "And whoever heads the Justice Department when we win is someone who is independent."
You can see their exchanges below.
Harris also told hosts on the show that while polls suggest a win for Biden on Nov. 3, she and the presidential candidate are "not looking for the curtains just yet."
