Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., says she agrees with House leaders Jerry Nadler and Nancy Pelosi that the United States is in the midst of a constitutional crisis.

“A constitutional crisis is generally when the system we set up with checks and balances, when each of the independent co-equal branches of government, fails to perform its duties and I think we’re seeing the breakdown of responsibilities,” Harris said during an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Now being a member of the U.S. Congress and Senate, I’m seeing up close where there is a failure to respect the significance of Congress’ duty to perform a role of oversight over the administration, over the agencies. I’m seeing the failure to appreciate the importance of testifying before Congress in a way that is straight forward and truthful, so yes I think it’s fair to say that we’re looking at a crisis not only of confidence but potentially, a constitutional crisis.” 

House Speaker Pelosi on Thursday warned that the U.S. was in a “constitutional crisis” and said House Democrats might move to hold more Trump administration officials in contempt if they continued refusals to comply with subpoenas.

Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday said the nation was in a constitutional crisis after his committee recommended his chamber hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over an unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
