Senator Kamala Harris continues to outshine nearly all others in the Senate when it comes to sheer badassery. Even thought she is not the one up there cross-examining witnesses, like she did during the confirmation hearings of Bill Barr and Brett Kavanaugh, Sen. Harris made her shrewd maneuvering known with this question she sent up to Chief Justice John Roberts.
The point about undermining the integrity of our justice system is important, and all, but can we for just a moment or three appreciate that she managed to get the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States to read Trump's words from the Access Hollywood tape directly into the record of the Senate impeachment trial??? I mean, that was some pretty extraordinary cleverness, right there.
This is perhaps one of the most wild things I’ve ever seen, @KamalaHarris having United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts read into the record Trump’s Access Hollywood comments: “When you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.” pic.twitter.com/0b6nDv58tm

Amazingly, Kamala Harris got the Chief Justice of the United States to read a lie in public, in the Senate, and he has no power to call it out as false. I need a shower after watching that.

As if THAT weren't enough, Senator Kamala Harris sent up a question that not only brought Lev Parnas' name into the chamber, but had SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts reading the words Trump spoke on the tape Igor Fruman secretly recorded. "Take her out."
"The House of Representatives is in now possession of a tape of President Trump saying..."Get rid of her, get her out tomorrow. I don't care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. Ok? Do it."

Heck yes! Question from Kamala Harris and Patty Murray of the House Managers
The House in possession of a tape where Trump said of ambassador Yovanovitch, "take her out. Do it" in company of Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman. Will more info come out after this?

Sen @PattyMurray also joined in that question.
It's not, I do not think, a coincidence, that two women Senators did not let Trump's attempt to smear and threaten a woman public servant go unnoticed.

The way Kamala Harris is getting Chief Justice Roberts to read Trump's own incriminating words against him out loud by including them in her questions and discussing Lev Parnas is brilliant.

She has never, and never will let any fool or criminal get away with ANYTHING, and for that reason, she has the respect and gratitude of millions of regular folks who love to see strong women make bullies cry.
