Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) wants to have a conversation on the tough issues of the day.
During a CNN town hall on Monday, instead of answering questions, Harris dodged by saying she wanted to have a conversation. When asked if she agreed with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) that murderers and terrorists like the Boston Marathon Bomber shouldn’t lose their right to vote in prison, Harris responded by saying “I think we should have that conversation.”
The following day, Harris cleaned up her remark and said, “‘Do I think that people who commit murder, people who are terrorists should be deprived of their rights? Yeah, I do. I’m a prosecutor.”
There were three other instances during the CNN town hall where Harris refused to give an answer.
When asked if she would support giving 16 year-olds the right to vote, she responded with, “I would be interested in having that conversation.” A student asked the senator about her plan for lowering student debt and all she could offer was that it was an “important conversation to have.” Asked if she supported reparations, Harris supported on having a study commissioned about the issue.
Shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller released his report to the public, Harris was asked about possible impeachment against President Donald Trump.
“I think that there is definitely a conversation to be had on that subject,” Harris responded. “First I want to hear from Bob Mueller and really understand what exactly is the evidence that supports the summary that we have been given today.”
Apparently she had a short conversation because a few days later at the town hall, Harris endorsed moving forward with the impeachment process.
