Former Gov. Mike Huckabee said incoming Vice President Kamala Harris should face impeachment over her support for Black Lives Matter rioters last summer, since President Donald Trump was impeached for allegedly “inciting” the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
“If we’re going to impeach Donald Trump for what he said, then we’d better impeach Kamala Harris for saying the things she did last summer about the rioters and the looters. And even establishing a monetary fund to get them out of jail on bail so they could get back to the riots,” Huckabee told Fox Business on Saturday. “If we’re gonna play this game, everybody should have a turn.”
Huckabee referred to Harris’s support of the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a leftist group that helped bail out violent rioters after George Floyd’s death.
The bail fund helped secure the release of a man accused of raping an 8-year-old girl, according to jail records, as well as an alleged murderer and a previously convicted rapist.

However, Huckabee was also critical of Trump for “creating the kind of discord” Americans saw on Jan. 6.
“We have to be honest, the last month has not been a good one for President Trump, he has sullied his own good reputation. And instead of using the last few weeks to celebrate the successes of his administration, and make the country really wish he was still going to be president, I think some of the rhetoric — and some of it wasn’t all his fault, but still, he’s being blamed, and the net result is people are going to be glad that he’s not on the stage,” he told Just The News last week.
Trump is going to “have to do some work of repair before he can come back and lead,” Huckabee continued.
“Could he run again? I don’t know,” he said. “Only if he can sort of show that he can be that above-it-all leader and not just deal with his hurts. And I have said to him personally, and I’ve said this about him, when he is at his best is when he’s fighting for the people. When he is at his worst, it’s when he’s fighting for himself.”
