Full steam ahead on 2020 – Kamala Harris announced she will run today. She denied Brett Kavanaugh due process in front of the nation, and in so doing has lost my vote. I could not imagine any American for somebody who does not believe in due process. pic.twitter.com/9NzPikOzM7

“Kamala Harris announced she will run today,” O’Reilly said. “She denied Brett Kavanaugh due process in front of the nation, and in so doing has lost my vote. I could not imagine any American for somebody who does not believe in due process.”
Kavanaugh faced multiple sexual misconduct accusations as he was being considered for a seat on the Supreme Court.
Harris, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in October that Kavanaugh’s confirmation was a “denial of justice” and a “disgrace.”
O’Reilly left Fox News after The New York Times reported that he had paid $13 million to five women to settle allegations of sexual misconduct. The newspaper also reported in October 2017 that O’Reilly paid $32 million to settle a sexual harassment claim against him.
