Investigative reporter and bestselling author Peter Schweizer accused Kamala Harris of mishandling cases of alleged child abuse at the hands of dozens of Catholic clergy during her time as San Francisco District Attorney.
Schweizer made his claims on Wednesday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Per Fox News:
Schweizer told host Tucker Carlson that when Harris took office in 2004, her predecessor, Democrat Terence Hallinan, left her with “hundreds of pages” of internal Catholic Church documents that included names of 40 accused clergy.
“Hallinan was using those documents to build criminal cases and he was also planning to release them after redacting the names of victims,” he said. “Kamala Harris actually deep-sixed … those documents, and those documents disappeared, much to the chagrin of victims’ groups.
“So it’s a massive cover-up and a lot of the people that financed her campaign to beat Hallinan were law firms and lawyers and people connected to the church hierarchy who did not want those documents to come out.”
In June 2019, the Associated Press published a report headlined, “Victims’ question Kamala Harris’ record on clergy abuse” in which survivors of clergy abuse and their attorneys claimed Harris was consistently silent on the Catholic Church’s abuse scandal — first as district attorney in San Francisco and later as California’s attorney general.
Do you trust the mainstream media to adequately scrutinize Harris, especially given her persona as an advocate for sexual assault survivors or will they ignore this story to spite President Trump? Tell us what you think in the comments below!
