They told me to be “courteous”

Kamala Harris

Earlier today I asked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to assure the American people that special counsel Bob Mueller has the independence and ability to investigate Donald Trump and his campaign’s ties to the Russian government.

Rosenstein dodged my question again and again—and as I pressed him to assure the American people, the Republicans tried to shut me down, saying I needed to be more “courteous”.

This is hardly the first time the GOP has done this—let us not forget when they silenced my friend and colleague Elizabeth Warren for trying to read a letter from Coretta Scott King about Jeff Sessions.

Well here is the truth, Jeff: I will not be silenced. We will not be silenced. The American people, who deserve the truth, will not be silenced. Not when the faith and integrity of our democracy is at stake.

Make a contribution today to send a message that we will not be silenced. We will always fight to get to the truth.

Like Senator Warren—and so many others—we will continue to persist and never give an inch when it comes to truth and accountability in our government.

Thanks for all you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California
