nearvideo shaper Kamala Harris, the opponent has a glass jaw, and last night’s debate, it proved to be

The former California GOP chair Tom Del Beccaro, who ran against Harris for Senate in 2016, says not to run the presidential candidate well, if it is set, on the spot.

Joe Biden took the brunt of the attacks, during this week’s primaries, debates-but top-tier rivals, Sr., Kamala Harris of California had done in the hot-seat as Biden and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard to your challenge to record a Prosecutor’s office.


And a review of relevant cases shows that, while Biden and Gabbard change things or details exaggerated, omitted, their allegations were largely factual.

After his clock cleaned by Harris during the first debate, an aggressive Ex-Vice President went on the Offensive Wednesday accusing Harris to keep non-violent prisoners behind bars, during their term of office as California attorney General, because they are a source of cheap labor for the state.

“What happened? A Federal government came to the judge and said, enough is enough, and he frees 1,000 for these people,” Biden said, as he argues that Harris was forced by a judge to secure the release of the prisoners.

Gabbard returned to the land heavy blows on the top-polling candidate – he accused to keep Harris, “people in prison beyond their sentences, to you as cheap labour for the state of California.”


She fired a litany of other accusations in relation to Harris’ record, you are in a rare position — play defense.


So, what the facts do show?

Biden and Gabbard were apparently pointing to a Daily article from January that said the illuminated comments by lawyers in the attorney General’s office, that the release of parolees would prevent Calfornia from the use of the prisoners for the fight against forest fires in the Beast.

In response to this article, the Harris campaign, said that “Harris was shocked and alarmed by the use of this argument. She looked inside and was in charge of the Department’s lawyers, that the argument again.”

In this week’s debate, Harris did not respond directly to the attacks had but defend your record, as the Golden State’s attorney general.

“I’m proud of the work we have. Work, received national recognition for what the important work of the Reform of the criminal justice system and the cleaning of the consequences of the bills that you pass, if you were in the Senate of the United States for decades,” you Biden said, as she pushed at him for his role as the senator of Delaware, the now controversial, in 1994, bill Tinker.was


Biden also criticized Harris via her previous job as a San Francisco district attorney.

The former Vice-President of the claim– that about 1,000 drug cases were dismissed due to a crime lab scandal at the San Francisco district attorney ‘ s office facts.

The laboratory has a switch after it was determined that a top technician, the abuse also had testified before the court in relation to drug cases in the order of the public Prosecutor – drugs-seized samples of suspects.

Harris’ office laboratory, the city police carried out Department had oversight. But a court decided in 2010 that the prosecution violated to reveal the constitutional rights of the accused what he knew about the contaminated drug evidence.

Harris told The New York Times earlier this year that she was unaware of the labor dispute, until the scandal exploded, and stressed that her office introduced new reforms.

During the debate, Gabbard Problem with Harris is marking itself as a progressive Prosecutor.

“If you were able to make a difference and an impact in these people’s lives, they do not have,” Gabbard says.

And she charged that Harris “in the case of those on death row, innocent, people you blocked evidence brought to light that would have freed you, until you were forced to do so.”

The Congressman from Hawaii, was likely a reference to the murder of Kevin Cooper was convicted in 1983 of a quadruple murder. The people condemned to death and came close to execution in 2004, when Harris, as attorney general, denied Cooper’s request for a new advanced DNA test. In February of this year, newly elected California Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered new DNA Tests.

Harris said she supports DNA testing, and encouraged to approve Newsom Cooper s request. But it has special features not offered, why, as attorney general Cooper to approve s’s request for further testing.

While Gabbard does not claim that Harris was at the time, unfortunately, for the DNA Test is an accurate, Cooper’s innocence has yet to be determined.

Gabbard also slammed Harris’ record on marijuana conviction.

“You put about 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed at, when asked whether they ever smoked marijuana,” the Congressman argued.

The figure apparently comes from Washington Free Beacon article in February.

As Gabbard stated, Harris has since weakened against the topic. Harris said in an interview earlier this year that you smoked marijuana as a college student, laughing at the memory.

In the last year you wrote on a bill by Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey – a rival for the 2020 democratic nomination – would the legalization of marijuana at the Federal level.
