Calif. Dem Senator Refuses Supreme Court Courtesy Call: ‘We Want Nothing to Do with You’

Proving that Democrats don’t take their role as Senators seriously, California Senator Kamala Harris is refusing to even talk with the White House when they reached out to her to discuss the Supreme Court confirmation process and the nominee.

Fox News reports that Harris’s office told the White House they didn’t even want to talk to them.

Sen. Kamala Harris’ office bluntly rejected a courtesy call from the White House in the run-up to Monday’s Supreme Court nomination, according to a senior White House aide.

According to the account, the Democratic California senator’s office told White House Counsel Don McGahn, “We want nothing to do with you.”

The senator’s office has since denied saying that. Asked about the claim, her office confirmed that the senator’s chief of staff, though not Harris, spoke with a McGahn aide — but denied the quote.

But according to the White House, the brusque response came as McGahn reached out to each Senate Judiciary Committee member to discuss the Supreme Court confirmation process. Fox News is told Harris’ office was the only one to reject the discussion.

This is no less a violation of Harris’ duties as a Senator.

After all, it is the very job of the Senate as outlined in the U.S. Constitution to give “advice and consent” to the president in his search to place judges on the bench.

The president chooses and then nominates a candidate, but that person cannot take his/her place on the bench until the U.S. Senate approves.

But in her partisan hatred, Harris didn’t even want to talk about it?

Sadly, it should surprise no one that the left is now so radical that liberal senators feel entirely comfortable refusing to even do their job all just to indulge partisan hatred. But, imagine how the media would be howling right now if it were a Republican Senator who had said he would refuse to even talk about the process.

And this is pretty ironic, given that House Majority Leader was just complaining that he and other Democrats hadn’t been consulted in the process, which turns out not to have been true.

They did reach out to the Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee members.

And if people like Kamala Harris reject being consulted, whose fault is that?

The Democrats are just simply out to destroy the nominee before he even gets started. I am nearly 80 years old, and have never seen such venomous hatred that is being displayed by the democrats towards an American President, and everything he does or attempts to do, as what is happening now. It is a good thing that we have Donald Trump who is a strong resilient leader in the White House, Many people (men or women) would have buckled under all the vitriol and obstruction Trump is receiving by not only the democrats, and the media, and even some… Read more »

Maybe she should recuse herself from the Judiciary Committee if she doesn’t want to have nothing to do with Trump’s Nominee.

He should’ve nominated B Hussein just so we could watch the left turn on him.

Let me be blunt: Having lived in San Francisco for wayyyyy too long and having been threatened in person by the Overseer-in-Charge (former 20-year California Assembly Leader and San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, married and while married also the paramour of Kamala Harris, used by him now!)………..I am not surprised at the nose in the air “we are better than you” nasty attitude of people from California in the Dem Party. They are pure trash, as a matter of fact. Low education. low morals, low down. In every way. Putting themselves up on false pedestals. At what point is someone… Read more »

The internal works of the country are being held hostage by the power hungry left and until we the people stand up and vote out these selfish politicians we will remain their captives. The left cares more for themselves and their own wallets then the people they represent. We need the people to stand up for not only the flag but to take back our country. We have to take away their power by never electing another democrat and run this country the way the founding fathers designed it.
