Giddy Kamala Harris Calls Trump Impeachment 'Solemn, Serious'

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Thursday was caught flashing a large grin before lamenting the transfer of two impeachment articles to the Senate as a “solemn, serious moment” in an interview with MSNBC.

Harris, who recently ended her ill-fated presidential campaign, is seen smiling at someone in the room before host Kasie Hunt questions her about the Senate’s upcoming impeachment trial against President Donald Trump. Once she realizes she is on a live shot, Harris’ demeanor swiftly changes. “This is a solemn, serious moment,” she says of the impeachment process. “These are the most serious charges brought in the history of our country against a president.”

“The moment we just experienced I think is highlighting the importance of doing impartial justice and taking seriously the importance of listening to the evidence and the importance of receiving evidence,” Harris then says of the swearing-in of senators as jurors in the upper-chamber.

Since launching a formal impeachment inquiry in September, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly referred to the effort as “solemn” and “prayerful.”

“This is a very sad time for our country,” Pelosi said of the process in a recent sit-down interview with the Texas Tribune. “This is no joy in this. We must be somber, we must be prayerful.”

However, the Speaker was all smiles following Wednesday’s signing ceremony of the articles, handing out commemorative pens to fellow Democrat lawmakers.
