Vice President Kamala Harris appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday saying that Americans will always “demand justice” when asked about potential charges against Donald Trump and whether or not his position as a former President should be considered.
President Trump is under investigation for how he handled potentially classified documents as well as for his alleged role in the events that unfolded at the White House on January 6.
The Daily Mail puts the “classified documents” investigation into perspective: “Ever since the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida last month, concerns have been raised about the visual of a Democrat president’s government investigating a political rival – should the ex-president formally declare his 2024 candidacy.”
Many democrats and liberals, on the other hand, are behind the investigation and have been fueled by leaders like Harris and Biden since the investigation began.
Chuck Todd asked Harris if she believed Trump’s position as a former President and potential 2024 candidate should factor into the decision to prosecute. Harris skirted around the question at first, but when Todd pushed, she answered back.
“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,” is what Harris said in regards to President Trump’s potential indictment.
In regards to the events of January 6, Harris told Meet The Press that “anti-democratic” forces, presumably like those seen at the Capitol on January 6, have made our country weaker.

Many on the right, however, would say the type of hateful rhetoric spewed recently by President Biden and the blaming and name-calling exhibited by Vice President Harris on Meet The Press is far more damaging to the democratic process.
In fact, as a recent Daily Mail article pointed out, it is difficult not to notice partisan politics at play when a first-term, sitting President sends his own DOJ and FBI to raid and harass his main political rival and potential opponent in an upcoming Presidential election.
