Vice President Kamala Harris rehashed the ubiquitous law enforcement bromide about not commenting on investigations before bashing former President Donald Trump.
A reporter aboard Air Force Two asked the vice president for reaction to the unsealed search warrant served against Trump.
“Well, as a former prosecutor, I will tell you, I don’t speak about anybody else’s case,” Harris replied. “But I have full confidence that the Department of Justice will do what the facts and the law requires.”
The Conservative Brief further reported:
“How about some of the rhetoric that’s coming out from Trump’s allies? Do you have any reaction to the attempted attack on a FBI field office yesterday?” the reporter said.
“I will say, as a former prosecutor, but as a citizen of our nation, any attacks on law enforcement are completely unacceptable. And any so-called leader who engages in rhetoric that in any way suggests that that law enforcement should be exposed to that kind of danger is irresponsible and can result in dangerous activities,” the vice president said.
“You know, our law enforcement professionals — and, in this case, we’re talking about our federal law enforcement agencies — they do very important work. And from the moment they walk out the door of their home until they go back in, their families pray for their safety and well-being.
“And I think it’s just highly irresponsible of anyone who calls themselves a leader and certainly anyone who represents the United States of America to engage in rhetoric for the sake of some political objective that can result in harm to law enforcement officers and agents,” she said.
Late Friday, the FBI finally revealed what more than two dozen agents took from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate during a raid on Monday.
According to reports, agents recovered 11 sets of documents that were marked as classified, including some that were labeled “Top Secret.”
It is unclear why the vice president said she did not comment on investigations when asked about the Mar-a-Lago raid before she commented extensively on the investigation of the attempt to penetrate an FBI field office.
