U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., made a splash for her 2020 presidential campaign during Wednesday’s judiciary committee hearing.
Attorney General William Barr appeared to take questions related to his reaction to the recently released Mueller report.
President Donald Trump took notice, saying that the former prosecutor was “probably very nasty” in her questioning.
Harris responded in an appearance on CNN the following morning.
.@KamalaHarris: “Trump’s primary interest has been to obstruct justice. My primary interest is to pursue justice. You can call that whatever name you want, but I think that's what the American people want in a leader.”

“We have a president of the United States whose primary interest — I think that has been clear as a result of what we know as a result of the Mueller report — his primary interest has been to obstruct justice,” she said.
On that point, she sought to further distance herself from the current administration.
“My primary interest is to pursue justice,” Harris said. “You can call that whatever name you want, but I think that’s what the American people want in a leader.”
