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?
Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Kavanaugh, represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans. I will oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court. #SCOTUSpick

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?
