Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, tore into Sen. Kamala Harris,D-Calif.,  for her tenure as California's attorney general, saying Wednesday night she owed an "apology" to "people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor."

In a visceral takedown, Gabbard charged Harris "put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana."

"She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California, and she fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way," she said.

After Harris' defense of her tenure as "significantly reforming the criminal justice system" in her state, making it a "national model," Gabbard continued the tongue lashing.

"When you were in a position to make a difference and an impact in these people's lives, you did not, and worse yet, in the case of those who are on death row, you blocked evidence from being revealed that would have freed them until you were forced to do so.

"There's no excuse for that and the people who suffered under your reign as prosecutor, you owe them an apology."
