Kamala Harris faces impeachment

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham warns that U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris could face impeachment if Republicans gain control of the Senate next year.

Graham believes that if Republicans regain a majority in the House of Representatives in next year’s midterm elections, Vice President Kamala Harris could face impeachment for her tweet in support of the Black Lives Matter protesters’ pledge fund, which she posted this summer.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday a day after the U.S. Senate acquitted former President DonaldTrump, the South Carolina Republican said the former president’s impeachment trial, which was brought over the bloody January 6 Capitol riots, “opened Pandora’s Box.” “If this model begins to be actively used, Kamala Harris will be impeached if Republicans take over the House because she was actually covering for the rioters,” Graham said of the former California senator from Oakland.

Like many Trump supporters, Graham seemed to equate last month’s siege of the U.S. Capitol with protests against racial injustice last summer, two very different events rooted in opposing movements.
