Harris Claims Russian Interference Could Cost Her the White House

Harris Claims Russian Interference Could Cost Her the White House”

These might be hard conversations for some, but they're not hard conversations for leaders, not for real leaders'.

In an interview Wednesday on CNN, Barr acknowledged "there are some situations where statistics would suggest" people of color are treated differently than white people but said the justice system was not inherently racist. Since then the deaths of a number of Black men while in police custody - including the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., and the death of Daniel Prude in Rochester, N.Y. - have sparked new furor, which at times has devolved in violence and rioting.

Well, you know, you just keep getting back to the opposite subject, ' Trump said.

"Could it cost you the White House?" asked CNN's Dana Bash.

'I am clear that Russian Federation interfered in the [presidential election] of 2016, ' Harris said, noting that she serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has published reports on the interference.

"I do believe that there will be foreign interference in the 2020 election and that Russian Federation will be at the front of the line", the California senator said.

When questioned on the upcoming general election in October and if there will be attempts by foreign governments to interfere with the results - as happened in 2016 - Harris was unequivocal in her belief that the same kind tactics will and are being employed in the 2020 election.

'We have to be a realist. I am very realistic. Theoretically, of course, yes, Harris said.

Responding to another question, Harris alleged that there are classic voter suppression at play in this election coming up, where, after the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act with Shelby v. Holder in 2013, dozens of states passed laws that were created to suppress the black vote, to suppress students from voting, to suppress indigenous people from voting, so much so that, in North Carolina, a court of appeals said the law was passed with surgical precision to get in the way of black voters from voting. So, we have classic voter suppression at play, ' she said.

Democratic 2020 vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris warned that Russia's continued interference in America's political institutions could be a reason why Joe Biden might not win the election.

Harris noted that Trump had a track record of suppressing expert opinion about the pandemic and anxious that might happen again in the case of a prospective vaccine.

Trump previously promised that the U.S. would come out with a vaccine "by the end of this year if not sooner" to which, Kamala Harris responded, "I think we have learned that ever since this pandemic started, that there's very little that we can trust what comes out of Donald Trump's mouth".

'I will not take his word for it'.
