Harris, who kicked off her presidential bid last month, sent out an email blast to supporters saying Cohen’s testimony was evidence that Trump has eroded key political institutions.
“Since Trump was elected, public trust in our democracy and institutions has been completely decimated. He has proven to be a threat to the very foundation of our country. If we’re going to correct course and get back on the right track, we need to fight like hell to elect a President who will speak truth,” Harris campaign manager Juan Rodriguez said in the email.
He added that the campaign is not on pace to hit its February fundraising goal and that falling behind would force it to “re-think where we place our resources.”
Cohen, a former personal lawyer for Trump, testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, slamming the president as a “conman,” a “racist” and a “cheat” and accuse him of a slew of transgressions during the campaign and while in office.
