California Democratic senator and presidential candidate Kamala Harris on Thursday blasted Attorney General Bill Barr, telling MSNBC he didn't take his job "seriously" and was hurting America by staying in the position.
"As a former prosecutor and the former attorney general of a state of 40 million people, one of the most important things that I took away from it is that this guy doesn’t take his job seriously," Harris said.
"You cannot be the attorney general of the United States of America where your responsibility is to do the work of justice," Harris continued, "and you declare in front of television cameras, you make statements about a case and you purport to be familiar with the evidence when you make these statements and guess what? It turns out he didn’t even look at the evidence."
"He doesn’t appreciate the significance of the job. It is a job that comes with it an incredible amount of power and it should be conducted with the highest level of integrity," Harris went on angrily, waving her hands in exasperation. "He has contributed to weakening our standing in the world."
