Sell-out Sen. Kamala Harris (d-CA) tries to get other Dems to join her openly selling out
Sell-out Sen. Kamala Harris, while attorney general of CA, ordered subordinates who had already uncovered 1000 illegal transactions by Steven Mnuchin's Bank One of California, to drop the whole thing; the attorneys under her control, were already working on another 1000 cases, not quite ready for prosecution when the order was given. Of course, Mr. Mnuchin is now a Trumpocrat, Secretary of the Treasury.

Now, in an effort to allegedly "save" the Democratic party from impending destruction*, she is now urging fellow DemonRATs to sell out to Donald Trump!
Amid all the self-reflection and infighting among Democrats about how they find their way out of the wilderness, Harris is emerging as a more nuanced political character than many on either side of the political line expected.
If this was nuanced, then it reveals the Dumbocrats to be only a half-step away from openly declaring themselves as Republicans. Actually for Progressives this might actually be a good thing as a previous essay has already requested, albeit in a slightly different manner.
But wait, there's more:
The pressure on Harris to unwaveringly fly the flag of the resistance is intense. She recalled the event in Los Angeles where she encouraged supporters not to turn their backs on Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia — red-state Democrats some liberal activists would like to purge — in their upcoming reelection bids.
Yea! Kamala, this is really striking a move for enhancing the Progressive cause. You will definitely see the Bernie Bros. clamoring to support you here.
“We can’t afford to be purists,” Harris said. “You have to ask that question of yourself: Are we going to be purists to this resistance to the point that you let these guys go? Or can you understand that you may not agree with 50% of their policy positions, but I can guarantee you will disagree with 100% of their replacements’ policy positions. So that is part of the question. What do we have to do in this movement to be pragmatic?”
That's a lovely word, Kamala, sure to inspire Berners with affection and sympathy for your views. Don't get me wrong, this is not a back-handed smear of berners. No!. It is a fore-handed smear. Yes Kamala has learned many of the traits which have made Hillary Rotten Klinton so beloved by the right and the Progressive left.
[S]he had been looking forward to pushing a nationwide expansion of the climate-change initiatives that have taken root in California
Yeah, you know just like one of her biggest supporter, Fracking Jerry Brown.
The KEY Qoute:
But despite pressure from activists on the left, Harris refuses to rule out working with the White House.

I wudda thunk she were already working with the WH, via her close personal friendship with Steve Give-Me-Money Mnuchin. Sigh.
*On a sad note I just came across this breaking news, which almost broke my heart: Hillary has almost (but not quite) given up on running for President again.
For those that know, my feelings are that this Please say it isn't so. Hillary, I beg of you, let this NOT be the ONE time you tell the truth. Then I will experience Crocodile tears of Joy (oh, wait...)
