Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) returned two weeks after her performance at the first democratic presidential democratic debate. View Friday to face some of Joe Biden's biggest media boosters.
Before going to Biden, co-facilitator Ana Navarro asked the former prosecutor to give her perspective on the most controversial topic of the morning: the resignation of Trump's secretary of labor, Alexander Acosta, for his involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein affair.
Harris "absolutely" challenged the idea that Acosta had reached the toughest deal possible with Epstein, calling child sexual abuse cases "the toughest cases." to commit "because" you ask a jury to believe a young person in relation to an adult. . "Any prosecutor" worthy of what he deserves, "she said, should have exposed Epstein's case to a jury and made sure that he was going to jail" for a long time. "
"It's difficult, but it's done every day in courtrooms in America," she added. "Every day, in American courts, prosecutors pursue these cases and get convicted. I have them. I have them personally. So that's what I find so disturbing in the story.
Meghan McCain was left to change the subject.
"I think we all agree that all this is odious, and it's very difficult to talk about it, but I'm glad we are," she said. . "I need to rotate if you do not mind. So let's talk about Joe Biden. "
In an attempt to create a critical moment, McCain cited a quote from Harris preceding the debate in which the senator said: "You will not hear me criticize Joe Biden. I think he is a good guy. McCain said that she thought: "Many people are curious about what happened to this promise. "
"I have no intention of attacking Joe Biden, but I will report our differences of opinion on a very critical moment in the history of the United States," said Harris calmly. She went on to explain that it was Biden's comments on segregationist senators that prompted her to address the bus issue in the debate.
"So listen, it's a race for the presidency," said Harris. "And I totally agree, I believe, and say that we should not be attacking each other personally, we should not be attacking each other, but we are at the stage of debate."
While McCain interrupted the senator to tell him that a Biden councilman called him "slippery and slippery," Harris raised a finger and said, "Wait!"
"Well, what do you know?" Chased Harris. "We are at the stage of debate and if you are not prepared and you are not ready for someone to point to a difference of opinion about the history of segregation in our country and on what was needed to deal with it, ie time was passing, so you're probably not ready.
