Dirty history of Kamala Harris with financial sector

Kamala Harris’ history with Wall Street and the banking industry did not come up in a big way during the 2020 election. It is anticipated that Democrats, with the help of their wealthy socialist and Islamist allies had somehow managed to burry most of the controversies centering Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, as they knew, this would generate public anger.

Kamala Harris  has a history of squaring off with the banking industry. The ‘running-mate’ of Joe Biden, who was under fire from the left over her track record on criminal justice matters, has also been criticized for not going far enough against Wall Street.

With the Democratic base moving further to the left since President Donald Trump’s election, the party’s 2020 presidential candidates’ relationship with big business and Wall Street deserve to be put under intense scrutiny.

According to analysts, President Donald Trump and his team has miserably failed in bringing evidences of corruption, nepotism, drug addiction, sexual exploitation and lot more criminal and illicit activities of Kamala Harris – to the attention of American voters.

Commenting on Kamala Harris, New York’s Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said: Harris received criticism from the left for taking money from big money interests and gauging the support of Wall Street financiers. Joe Biden also has deep, long-held ties to the banking industry.

Back in 2010 it was reported, Kamala Harris has had kept US$ 1,250 from a donor found guilty of keeping donations from a donor convicted of campaign finance fraud.

Disgraced political fundraiser Norman Hsu, a major contributor to the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates, made two contributions in 2006 to Kamala Harris, then San Francisco district attorney. In 2011, it was revealed that Hsu had been a fugitive for 15 years on grand theft charges in San Mateo County.

Hillary Clinton returned US$850,000 in contributions raised by Hsu for her presidential campaign, and other candidates also returned money when his past became known. A federal judge in New York sentenced Hsu to more than 24 years in prison for violating campaign finance laws and defrauding investors in a multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme.

Harris campaign spokesman Brian Brokaw said, Harris, then district attorney wanted to donate Hsu’s contributions to charity during her 2007 reelection campaign, but San Francisco law prohibits candidates from doing so during an active race. Harris thought the donation had been made after the election — which the law permits — but, in response to questions by The Times, discovered it had not, Brokaw said.

“Now that it has been brought to our attention, we will be contributing the funds to charity as was the original intent,” Brokaw said. The money will be sent to the San Francisco Domestic Violence Consortium and will come out of Harris’ campaign account for attorney general, he said.

A spokesman for GOP nominee Steve Cooley, the Los Angeles County district attorney, dismissed the Harris campaign’s explanation and said it shows that the Democratic candidate is either “incompetent or dishonest.”

“She is the one who raised the issue with her own phony attack,” said Kevin Spillane of the Cooley campaign. “The reality is she’s been taking cheap shots, and here she is guilty of the same thing she’s been trying to turn into political hay.”
