Harris Accepts Big Check From Epstein’s Firm Hours Before Attacking Him In Public

July 21, 2019

It won’t come as a surprise to many that Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is a huge hypocrite. After all, this is the same lawmaker who has flip-flop-flipped on her own healthcare plans three times in the last month.

But Harris is back in hot water after she attacked billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein in public, but then quietly accepted a big check from him behind the scenes.


Following his arrest this month, federal prosecutors say Epstein allegedly created and maintained a “vast network” and operation from 2002 “up to and including” at least 2005 that enabled him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls” in addition to paying victims to recruit other underage girls.

Despite this, Harris still had no problem taking money from the law firm that previously represented Epstein and negotiated his 2008 plea deal.

As noted by the New York Post, Harris’s husband headlined a fundraiser hosted for her campaign by lawyers at Kirkland and Ellis on the same day the California senator attacked the law firm for its defense of Epstein.

So while Harris raged against Epstein on the campaign trail, her husband was literally taking money from that exact law firm for Harris’s 2020 campaign.

Here’s the kicker: the Harris campaign is refusing to tell the American people how how much money was raised at the fundraiser.


And they aren’t giving the money back, either.

“In our democracy, no one—no matter how powerful or well-connected—is above the law,” Harris said in a statement released by her campaign last Tuesday.

“Yet Epstein’s deal, secured by his lawyers at Kirkland and Ellis, calls into question the integrity of our legal system and undermines the public’s confidence that justice will be served,” the statement added.

Just hours before the statement was released, Harris’s husband, lawyer Doug Emhoff, was in Chicago at a fundraiser for Harris hosted by six partners at Kirkland and Ellis.

Perhaps aware they were caught looking like huge hypocrites, Harris’s campaign admitted that they went ahead with the fundraiser despite the fact that it had just attacked Epstein hours before.


Ian Sams, a Harris spokesman, said there wasn’t a problem with accepting the campaign contributions because the firm is big and the partners who hosted the fundraiser didn’t work on Epstein’s plea agreement.

“The people involved in that case have not supported her campaign, and she wouldn’t want that support anyway,” Sams said.

The firm and the six partners named on the event invitation did not respond to requests for comment.

Quite remarkable to see Harris attack Epstein on the campaign trail so that she can appear tough.

But behind the scenes, Harris’s campaign was cozying up to the law firm and begging for money.

And they are refusing to tell people how much money they were given.




The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me.

I wouldn't call her a whore but, Harris is most definitely a woman of, shall we say, flexible ethics and moralities.

It may be exactly what the Democratic party needs but not at all what the country requires of it's leaders.

She didn’t accept money from Kirkland and Ellis. She accepted money from lawyers who work at the firm. That’s not the same thing. Kirkland has thousands of lawyers. I’ve donated money to numerous political candidates. Those shouldn’t be and is not considered donations from the firm I work for.

And; ...the double standard continues.

Atty Michael Cohen turns out to be a sleaze ball so THE Donald MUST be.

I'll remember that the next time the Left attacks Chick-Fil-A for the personal views of the owner....

...but that must be "different"...

Plus, her own father says she is a "fraud" and a "liar".
