If President Donald Trump is indicted, it won’t be because of a President Joe Biden, explained Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) in an interview with “The View” on Monday. If Trump is charged with crimes, it’ll be because of an independent Justice Department’s investigations.
“You said a Harris Justice Department would have no choice but to pursue criminal charges against Trump for let’s say obstruction of justice,” said host Sunny Hostin. “Would the same go for a Biden Department of Justice? Do you support a Trump prosecution?”
Harris explained she and Biden intend to give the DOJ their power to operate independently outside of the president, as it did before the Trump/Bill Barr era.
“First of all, there is a huge difference between Joe Biden and my perspective on the Department of Justice and Donald Trump,” Harris explained. “We will not have a Department of Justice that conducts itself as the personal lawyer of the president such as the way Donald Trump has done. And whoever leads the Department of Justice if we win is someone who will be independent and will make the decisions based on whatever in their discretion with the facts and they have without any interference from the white house, period.”
Harris went on to say that things may look good for their campaign, but that she expects it to come down to the wire and they’re certainly “not measuring for drapes” just yet.

Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department banned from the building: report
The Associated Press reported Thursday that President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department was barred from entering the building.
The report revealed that Heidi Stirrup, "an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller," was pressuring Justice Department staff to hand over sensitive documents and information about alleged "election fraud" and other issues that are important to Trump.
Attorney General Bill Barr told the AP on Tuesday that there was no widespread election fraud or voter fraud, as Trump has claimed for the past several weeks since losing the 2020 election. Trump alleged that Barr “hasn’t looked very hard."
Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money
In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.
When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.
"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."
‘I’m utterly embarrassed’: Michigan Republican admits Rudy Giuliani ‘waded into the realm of insanity’
Michigan state Rep. Aaron Miller, a Republican, this week accused Rudy Giuliani of entering the "realm of insanity" with his testimony to lawmakers in Michigan.
Miller made the remarks following Giuliani's wild testimony to the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
"I’m happy to thoughtfully listen to evidence and claims and that was what today was supposed to be about, but Mr. Giuliani’s final statement waded into the realm of insanity," Miller said, according to The Detroit News. "He made wild and broad partisan insults for several minutes that had nothing to do with the election, and it was frankly unacceptable, shameful, and pathetic and distracts from any evidence that we might hear."
