On Monday, Kamala Harris said that she believes that Donald Trump’s twitter account poses a risk for the whistleblower.
He has already suggested that his removal from office would start a civil war and that whistleblowers are traitors to the country and should be treated as such.
Now, Democratic 2020 candidate Kamala Harris thinks that the only way to keep the whistleblower safe and the investigation fair is to suspect Donald Trump’s twitter account, which has over 65 million followers.
President Donald Trump started a new hashtag this week – #FakeWhistleblower – to share this discontent with the whistleblower story released last week, which detailed a phone call between Trump and the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.
The whistleblower suggested that President Trump asked Ukraine for help investigating Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Hunter has business ties to Ukraine.
Reportedly, Trump said that Attorney General William Barr and the President’s personal attorney, Rudi Giuliani, would call Zelensky to hash out the details.
Along with his clever hashtag, Trump has tweeted several times about how “fake” the whistleblower report is and how it is just an attempt to push him out of office for the next term.
Along with suggesting that the impeachment process could start a civil war (which some experts have suggested is grounds to impeach by itself), Trump has stated that Zelensky must be close with a spy and that in the “old days” spies were treated very differently.
Yes, the president is suggesting that the whistleblower is not just a fake, but a traitor and a spy, and should be handled as such. That would be minimal trial with maximum punishment, in case you weren’t clear.
While Trump’s account isn’t suspended yet, she did go on a long rant about it yesterday while talking to Anderson Cooper on his show, “Anderson Cooper 360”, saying that the way the president speaks is irresponsible.
“I think there is plenty of now evidence to suggest that he is irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people… the privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him.”
Harris did not directly respond to Cooper’s question when he asked if she felt that it should be the place of media giants like Twitter to muzzle a political superpower. She simply repeated her statements that his words can cause harm, and he should not be allowed to do so.
