David Compost, is chair of the San Francisco Democratic Party, also a former San Francisco county supervisor. Thank you for joining us. Thank you. So tell us a little bit about your feelings off camera. Harris joining the Biden ticket and whether or not you know, the Trump campaign is painting her as the sort of quintessential left wing blazing liberal. Issue. Well, I don't believe she is. But But let me just be very clear that I I believe that old Democrats need to get behind this ticket. And I think that I can say that as someone who was a very ardent supporter of Bernie Sanders and who is proud to be AH, progressive. And I can be a progressive who at times has been critical of Kamala Harris. I still say to my fellow progressives and my fellow Democrats we need to unify behind this ticket. The reality is that if you look at her record, as Ah, That only attorney general But as the district attorney of San Francisco that it was not what I would consider a progressive record. It certainly was not. Ah record that Ah, lines with what she's saying today. And you know, I can say that and still, you know, stand here today and say I'm supporting her in Biden because I think that the election Has too much at stake and as Democrats we have Of responsibility to make sure that whatever we do that we make sure that Donald Trump is not reelected. I got I got that, David, but But let me ask you because you said something interesting. You said in passing that that tree did things in the past, not what she is now, saying. Now look, people change. Hopefully, as people get older and they have experienced, they do change. But then there are other people kind of put their finger up into the wind. And whichever way it's blowing. That's the way they go. Where does she fit into that? Well, I'm hoping that it is change and you know, I I actually started out in politics around the same time that Kamala started. We actually both worked in the city attorney's office in San Francisco over Deputy city attorneys together. I supported her when she first ran for District attorney When she was running, you know, to be a progressive district attorney. She supported my candidacy for supervisor. And we're re parted ways was probably in two areas one when it came to issues of police misconduct and holding police accountable. I felt that as district attorney she was not really doing enough Ah to to hold police accountable and that there were many concerns about Conduct by police officers. Whether it's you know, profiling people of color. Ah, mistreating people where we never really thought that Camilla was an ally of the movement to reform the San Francisco Police Department. And you know, you have heard, I think in the press members of the police union, which were many which we saw an obstacle to reform, you know, talk about how they had a good relationship with Carl, right? And so so that that was one area in another area was on the issue of Immigration where you know she really was supportive of policies that at that point, Gavin Newsome was instituting that were anti immigrant. That led to the deportation and many undocumented Hughes And you know what we saw later was Camilla, you know, say something different about those issues about police reform in about immigration. And what I wanted to note simply was. Look, that's not the record.

KP CASE Joe Michaels joins us Live in studio with more Oh Bill Bynes decision to add California's junior senator to the 2020 Democratic ticket brings a smile to the face of the only woman currently sitting on Sacramento City Council Councilwoman Anjali Gash be calling the choice, exciting seeing yourself reflected in leaders. Is just so empowering, not just for young people, but for all people. Women have never seen themselves in the Oval Office. In the White House.

Wall Street Reacts to Biden-Harris Ticket
"Today Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first appearance together as running mates for the Democratic presidential ticket. CARMELA. As you all know is smart. She's tough. She's experienced. She's a proven fighter for the backbone of this country. The middle class for all those who are struggling to get into the middle class. Connell. Knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. She's ready to do this job on day one. After the most competitive primary in history. The country received a resounding message that Joe was the person to lead US forward. and. Joe. I'm so proud to stand with you. And I do so mindful. Of all the ROIC ambitious women before me. Who sacrifice determination and resilience makes my presence here today even possible. This is a moment. Of Real consequence for America, Harris's pick is historic and has prompted reactions from around the World Harris's father is Jamaican. Her mother is from India. She's the first black woman and the first woman of South Asian ancestry on a major party presidential ticket in the US Also, Reacting Wall Street. Financial leaders were anxiously awaiting Joe Biden's pick for vice president, our tech money and politics reporter Emily Glaser has been speaking to many of them and joins me now. So Emily you bet on the phone with business leaders all day. How would you characterize their reaction? This leaders are generally really happy that Comma Harris was chosen as Biden's VP pick for a couple of reasons. But basically, they view her as a pragmatic person or realist who while she has been tough on big. Business in the past looks at the nuance issues and takes each thing at a time versus having a blanket approach as you know, the wealthiest bad or big businesses bad. We've seen president trump and his campaign try to paint Senator Harris as a radical left wing Pick Wall Street doesn't seem to see it that way. Definitely not a lot of what I. Heard from folks on the phone text messages emails. But that she's moderate, she sent her even though people don't like using those words that much anymore and that's similar to how they think about Biden and a lot of the reasons why think financial leaders are happy and pleased and cheering on this Harris pick is that she does represent a move away from. The. Far Left Progressive Part of the Democratic Party the part that Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Are In and so they're relieved that you know things like more financial regulation or really taking back see right now it's all about economic recovery and harassed and Biden have said they think big business is good if the economy recovers and business recovers, that's good for. Everybody. You know it's interesting because after Biden made his announcement yesterday, we heard Praise from people like Senator Warren and Senator Sanders. We know Senator Harris has pledged to be tough on big banks as California Attorney General. She pushed for a big settlement with banks for their role in the foreclosure crisis. What about her record makes Wall Street thinks she's a moderate. It's a great question look like you said, she's touted her tough on banks record. But when you actually break it down, what folks in the financial community are saying is that she's made no secret that there's wrongdoing she will prosecute her background as a prosecutor, but it's also important to keep in mind that her big bank settlement was very nuanced and she did claim a lot of credit for it got brought a lot to. The State of California but we had reported earlier last year that she wasn't always really doing as much of the substance of the negotiations and she was doing a lot that solidified. The Big Bank settlement is helping her record as a politician. So when I spoke with bankers and financial executives last night and today they were saying look she's GonNa take swings at us. We get that it's politics. We're not gonNA take it personally. When there's wrongdoing you know she says she's going to prosecute. We got that but she's not going to have a blanket approach as all banks are bad or all wealthy people are bad. What were some of her other policies on the campaign trail and what do they tell us about her stance toward the financial industry. Healthcare was a really big wine and let's not forget healthcare with the most important issue on the campaign trail. Now, in coronavirus times, it's shifted more to economic recovery. But Harris struggled with this event she failed to really clearly state what her plan was initially, and then once she did she basically said she would have a government run health care plan that would still allow for private insurers an even mentioned that she proposed taxing financial transactions to pay for that. Health care overhaul. So that's something that certainly is out there would really impact the financial sector. Another one that was really big was her so called three. I'm agenda in the beginning of the primary when she was on the trail, she often would attack president trump a lot but she changed strategies partway through an efforts to really appeal more to the every man, every woman and the middle class and mentioned things like gender pay equality breezing teacher salaries and things. Like that that she hoped would get her more voters. She's also being welcomed warmly from the tech world. What can you tell us about that? You know, let's not forget that Kamla Harris has been a politician California in the bay area for a while she was district attorney. She was Attorney General She's been California senator since two thousand sixteen she knows tech executives in Silicon Valley and his raise money from them for her races for a number of years she. Also, lives part time in southern. California with her husband Doug Hav who is an corporate entertainment lawyer. So she's got these deep ties to the media telecom tech and entertainment world folks that have fundraise for her for years. They know her they think she's tough but fair and are very excited and already planning fundraisers now that she's the VP pick, she's also shown that she can raise big bucks from Wall Street donors. How might that help the Biden campaign overall? I think it will help double down on a lot of the money that they need. I saw an invite for recent fundraiser that has the high amount at two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. This is big money we're talking about a lot of the Biden fundraisers in recent weeks have raised millions while Harris and Biden do overlap on a lot of donors whether from the financial tech media entertainment world, a lot of them have known. Harris. For a really long time supported her during the primary and may be willing to give even more money than they already have to the Biden campaign now that she's on the ticket.

"I think wanted to bring a case was a little pushing a case that I thought might have had something to do with with politics. It was it was it was interesting. It was a matter that I was recused from could only observe that from outside. And how you relate to the career ficials when you were there. I mean, did you did you remind them that you are one of them. Did you try to maintain a certain distance or how did you sort of treat them? Well, you know, it's interesting. I mean, when I was a line guy we used to kid our kid kiddingly, call the political appointees tourists, you know, so they they're here, and then they get a little passports, their stamp or something, but they leave and we really run this department members saying that as as a line guy. But I remember thinking about that when I came back to the department both as deputy as US attorney is attorney general that you know, you had to had to make sure that to the extent people had any concerns about she was a political appointee. You had to allay those concerns by involving the career people in decision making show them, the appropriate respect, you certainly wouldn't do the, you know, the Trumpian kinds of things where you you go after people question, their, you know, their their integrity. And I think it'd be for others to. Side. I think I had a good relationship with with the career folks, they might not have always agreed with me on policy decisions that I made or directions. I wanted to take the department. But I don't think people thought that what I was doing was improperly motivated disagree with me, you know. But I don't think people would say that he wasn't doing this for appropriate if wrong reasons, so we know what Muller did when he saw these text messages between piece struck and Lisa page. Did you did you ever see anything remotely like that? When you were there. And what would you have done the think if you were confronted with that by career employees doing the investigations they were doing well, whether expressing these these strong, these these political these political views, I mean, that's kind of thing I have not seen that and be to the extent that I would that would would have meat. Pulled those people off of the that investigation. I mean, you just cannot have you know, it's one thing that people have strong, political views and have the ability to hopefully, put them aside and just judge things on the basis of the facts and the law, but with that those emails that Email chain, it would be too much to have the American people believe given what they said, and how they said it that these folks were operating in totally appropriate way. Now, I don't I don't take from what I'm saying that I believe that they acted inappropriately or they did things on the basis of politics. But the perception there was was just too bad. You'd have to remove them from from that invested investigative team. One of the things in the midst of the investigation that's been extensively debated in the public whether or not the president can be indicted while he's in office. I'm wondering, I'm not asking you offer up a detailed legal opinion on this or or call into question sees existing opinion. But I'm wondering, do you think? What do you think the right answer should be? Yeah. I will let let's go there. I mean, I think that the oil see opinions are wrong, you know, this one I guess from the the Watergate era, and then I guess one from the latter part of the Clinton administration, and you know. You know, I've read those opinions, and I remember looking at the looking at them while still AG was just one of those deals. I I had some free time. And I remember wanted. I just wanted to look at the look at them. And I remember looking at them then in thinking, you know, this notion that you can't indict the president essentially because you will paralyze, you know, the executive branch just doesn't to me hold water..
