Kamala Harris: The Very Integrity of the United States Senate Is on Trial

‘What is before us are charges that are the most serious charges leveled against a president of the United States’

EXCERPT:

HARRIS: "Thank you, Leader Schumer. I would argue that not only is this an impeachment trial but that the very integrity of the United States Senate is on trial. What is before us are charges that are arguably the most serious charges that have ever been leveled against a president of the United States. And where there has been abandonment of the responsibility to uphold the ideals, much less the words of the United States Constitution by the president of the United States, that responsibility now rests on the shoulders of each member of the United States Senate, which is to uphold the integrity of our system of democracy, uphold the integrity of our system of justice, and to uphold the integrity of the United States Senate which has a responsibility to do fair and impartial justice, which means demanding that the American public and each member of this body receive all evidence, documents and individuals who are witnesses, so that we can engage in a fair deliberation and make a decision that reflects the ideals and the values and the very principles of the United States system of justice.”
