I warned Legal Insurrection readers that irksome Kamala Harris would prove to be worse than the progressive pixie she replaced in the U.S. Senate, Barbara Boxer.

She has, however, vastly exceeded my abysmally low projections in the short amount of time she has been in the nation’s capital.

Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) brutally suspended Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) from speaking during the Senate Intel hearing when she refused to let assistant attorney general Rod Rosenstein answer any questions.

Rosenstein was trying to explain why special counsel Robert Mueller cannot be fired by the president when Harris cut him off.

….Burr wasn’t interested in allowing Harris to continue to interrupt the witnesses and cut off her speaking time so Rosenstein could finish his response.

“The senator will suspend. The chair is going to exercise his right to allow the witness to answer the question,” Burr said to eye rolls from Harris. “The committee is on notice to provide the witnesses the courtesy, which has not been extended all the way across, extend the courtesy for questions to get answered.”

Afterward, a senate colleague chimed in with #ShePersisted support:

Legal Insurrection readers may recall some of Harris’ past antics, both as the junior Senator and as the California Attorney General.

The profanity, non-sequitors, and political punishments are likely to continue for the next six years. In fact, many Legal Insurrection fans were watching or listening to the Comey hearing and may have witnessed this embarrassing line of questioning from Harris.

It also created an opportunity for ambitious politicians, and Sen. Kamala Harris of California eagerly stepped into the spotlight. Shedding the image she had as California attorney general for being overly cautious, Harris introduced herself to a worldwide audience as a former prosecutor and immediately seemed to compare Trump’s conduct to an armed felon.

“In my experience of prosecuting cases, when a robber held a gun to somebody’s head and said, ‘I hope you will give me your wallet,’ the word ‘hope’ was not the most operative word at that moment,” said Harris…

Assessing this spectacular list of accomplishments, what is the next, logical step in Harris’ career? Could it be President?

Despite swirling speculation, California’s U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris said she’s not giving “any consideration” to running for president in 2020.

Harris was appearing at the annual Code Conference hosted by the tech news site Recode in Rancho Palos Verdes on Wednesday night when site co-founder Kara Swisher asked if she had eyes on the White House.

“I’m not giving that any consideration. I’ve got to stay focused,” said Harris, a Democrat who was elected to the Senate in November after serving as California’s attorney general.

Considering the emptiness of the Democratic Party’s current presidential bench, there is little wonder why some are already pinning their hopes on Harris. However, let’s hope her unusually rational statements about not running are true.
