By AP. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) says she won’t comment again on the investigation into a reported attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett until an investigation is completed.
Speaking to reporters in Concord, New Hampshire, on Monday during her first 2020 presidential campaign trip here, Harris says that “the facts are still unfolding” and that while she is “very concerned” about Smollett’s initial allegation and that it should be taken seriously, “there should be an investigation.” . . .
Harris previously tweeted that the alleged attack was “an attempted modern day lynching.”
.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

Sen. Kamala Harris: ‘I Am Not a Democratic Socialist’
By The Daily Beast. On Monday, 2020 contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told New Hampshire voters that she doesn’t consider herself a democratic socialist. “The people of New Hampshire will tell me what’s required to compete in New Hampshire, but I will tell you I am not a democratic socialist,” Harris said, according to The New York Times. “I believe that what voters do want is they want to know that whoever is going to lead, understands that in America today not everyone has an equal opportunity and access to a path to success.”
