Kamala Devi Harris is a US politician and lawyer serving as the Vice President of the United States from 20 January 2021.[1]

A member of the Democratic Party, Kamala Harris served as a United States Senator from California from 2017 to 2021, and as the Attorney General of California from 2011 to 2017.


Harris started her career as a lawyer in 1990, after graduating from Howard University and the University of California's Hastings College of the Law, at the Alameda County district attorney’s office in Oakland. From there, she was recruited to the San Francisco district attorney's office to run the department’s career criminal unit.

Willie Brown

In the mid-1990s, Kamala Harris started dating Willie Brown, the mayor of San Francisco and one of California’s most powerful politicians. Brown was investigated by the FBI when he was speaker of the California Assembly and as mayor was dogged by conflict of interest, as he used his political machine to steer government contracts and jobs to allies.

In 2003, Harris’ critics used the relationship with Brown to contend that she was not independently qualified to hold office and that, if elected, she would hesitate to investigate corruption at City Hall. Eric Jaye, a political strategist in the city, said Harris’ emergence from San Francisco politics reminds him of Andy Dufresne, the Tim Robbins character from The Shawshank Redemption. “Andy Dufresne,” he said, quoting a line from the movie, “who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side."[2]


In 2003, she was elected district attorney of San Francisco. She was elected Attorney General of California in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. Harris was made junior United States senator from California from 2017 to 2021.

Protecting paedophiles

In 2019 The Intercept reported that "thanks to Kamala Harris’s predecessor, the San Francisco DA’s office had files on clergy sex abusers. But Harris refused to share them with victims." Newspaper SF Weekly asked Harris to release the church abuse personnel files in 2005 and 2010. In both cases, her office refused, even after legal counsel told several whistleblowers and the paper Harris was the force blocking them and the paper was planning to report on her. Harris even doubled down by sealing the the files.[3]

Protecting the Prison-Industrial complex

During her run for president, several outlets, including The Atlantic and The Intercept noted her abysmal track record in California as Attorney General.

“On June 6, 1998, police were summoned to a bar in the San Fernando Valley where a fight had broken out. The Los Angeles Police Department officers Michael Rex and Thomas Townsend rolled into the parking lot and turned on their floodlights. They later testified that they saw Daniel Larsen, then 30, pull a long, thin object from his waistband and throw it under a vehicle; that they ordered everyone in the parking lot to get down on their knees; that they retrieved a double-edged knife with a weighted handle from beneath a car; and that they arrested Larsen, who was convicted of felony possession of a deadly weapon during a jury trial, despite protesting his innocence. Larsen had two prior felonies and was sentenced to 28 years to life. A federal court later found, though, in the words of the California Innocence Project which went to bat on Larsen’s behalf, that he was “innocent, the police officers who testified at his trial were not credible, and his trial attorney was constitutionally ineffective for failing to call witnesses on his behalf.” On June 14, 2010, Larsen was still in prison, but the state was ordered to either retry him within 90 days or to release him. Harris, who was elected attorney general that year, could have chosen to free the man who had already served more than a decade in prison for possessing a knife that almost certainly wasn’t his. Under her leadership, the attorney general’s office instead filed an appeal attempting to block his release because he hadn’t filed his claim for relief in a timely manner. It sought to keep a man in prison on procedural grounds, despite strong evidence of innocence. But here’s the thing: before Larsen was released, the California Attorney General appeal the judge’s ruling, arguing that even if Larsen was innocent of the crime, he shouldn’t be released and his conviction shouldn’t be overturned because he had waited too long to file his paperwork. That’s right: the California AG was okay with an innocent man spending his life in prison, his entire life behind bars, over a freaking technicality.”

“In 2010, the crime lab run by the San Francisco Police Department was rocked by a scandal when one of its three technicians was caught taking evidence––cocaine––home from work, raising the prospect of unreliable analysis and testimony in many hundreds of drug cases. It was later discovered that, even prior to the scandal, an assistant district attorney had emailed Harris’ deputy at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office complaining that the technician was “increasingly UNDEPENDABLE for testimony.”

But even after the technician was caught taking home cocaine, neither Harris nor anyone in her office notified defense attorneys in cases in which she had examined evidence. “A review of the case, based on court records and interviews with key players, presents a portrait of Harris scrambling to manage a crisis that her staff saw coming but for which she was unprepared,” The Washington Post reported in March. “It also shows how Harris, after six years as district attorney, had failed to put in place written guidelines for ensuring that defendants were informed about potentially tainted evidence and testimony that could lead to unfair convictions.”

In fact, her office initially blamed the San Francisco police for failing to tell defense attorneys about the matter. A judge was incredulous, telling one of the assistant district attorneys, “But it is the district attorney's office affirmative obligation. It's not the police department who has the affirmative obligation. It's the district attorney. That's who the courts look to. That's who the community looks to, to make sure all of that information constitutionally required is provided to the defense.””
Conor Friedersdorf/Deconstructed - The Intercept [5]

“For years, R. Scott Moxley, an indefatigable alt-weekly reporter, has covered police and prosecutorial misconduct for OC Weekly, a beat that never left him short for material, and that absolutely exploded in 2014, when Harris was attorney general. As he summarized it, “Sheriff’s deputies had spent years running unconstitutional jailhouse scams against pretrial inmates to secretly secure prosecutorial victories at trials. In return, prosecutors under then–District Attorney Tony Rackauckas looked the other way when deputies hid, doctored or destroyed exculpatory evidence from defendants; repeatedly committed perjury; and disobeyed lawfully issued court orders. Tens of thousands of pages of records inside the Orange County Superior Court, as well as at the California Court of Appeal, prove beyond a reasonable doubt each element of what became known nationally as the jailhouse-informant scandal.” For example, Harris’ investigators incredibly obeyed Orange County Sheriff’s Department commands not to audio record certain statements from accused deputies. More telling, however, is the fact that the alleged investigation long ago landed in bureaucratic oblivion. Though Goethals and the California Court of Appeal officially announced disgust with OCSD perjury years ago, the AG’s office—first under Harris and now with Xavier Becerra—hasn’t held anyone accountable after a probe that so far has lasted more than 1,411 days.”

Views on Israel

In July 2019, Kamala Harris was interviewed on the Kyle Kulinski show, and was asked whether she considered Israel was meeting international standards of human rights. Harris seemed determined to say nothing that could be remotely construed as critical.

Her initial answer consisted of this word salad:

“I think that Israel as a country is dedicated to being a democracy and is one of our closest friends in that region and that we should understand the shared values and priorities that we have as a democracy, and conduct foreign policy in a way that is consistent with understanding the alignment between the American people and the people of Israel.”
Q: “Does Israel meet your human rights standards to your personal satisfaction?” A: “Overall, yes.”

Unsatisfied, the interviewer followed up:

“Does Israel meet your human rights standards to your personal satisfaction?”

Playing for time, Harris asked:

“What specifically are you referring to?” before finally answering the question: “Overall, yes.”

This means that Harris sees no problem with Israel’s policy of sending snipers to systematically and deliberately kill unarmed civilians, including children, who protest their internment in the besieged Gaza Strip.

It means she sees no problem with Israel’s skyrocketing demolitions of Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank to make way for Jewish-only settlements – a war crime.

It means she sees no problem with Israel’s military detention and torture of Palestinian children.

It means Harris sees no problem with dozens of Israeli laws that discriminate against Palestinian citizens of Israel solely for not being Jewish. These include laws and policies that promote the kind of housing discrimination and official segregation that is banned in the US thanks to the civil rights laws she claims to uphold.

It means she sees no problem with Israel’s recent Nation-State Law explicitly affirming superior rights for Jews over Palestinians.

Kyle Kulinski, an influential left-wing commentator and a founder of the progressive political action committee Justice Democrats, offers a scathing response.

He says that Harris brushing aside Israel’s horrific record shows that her “moral” and “ethical concerns” are “nonexistent”:

“She’s playing the political game that people play in the United States of America to try to get ahead.”
“It shows you that she’s unlikely to change anything,” he adds. “That’s why this is important.”[7]

Democrats control the Senate

On 20 January 2021, Democrats officially took control of the Senate when Vice President Kamala Harris swore in three new members, after she took her own oath of office, giving her party control of the White House and Congress.

Harris delivered the oath of office to the new Democratic senators: Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock of Georgia and Alex Padilla, who replaced her representing the state of California.

She returned to Capitol Hill, almost five hours after she became the first female Vice President, to preside over the Senate for the first time. The VP also serves as president of the Senate.[8]
