Top white house aides defend Kamala Harris against reports of an unhealthy environment in office

Top White House aides defended Kamala Harris after reports suggesting an unhealthy environment in the VP’s office emerged.

Last week, Politico reported on over 22 former and current employees who described an “abusive environment” and being “treated like sh*t.” Defending Harris, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain described the VP and her team as “off to the fastest and strongest start of any Vice President I have seen.” He continued, “Her talents and determination have made a huge difference. … The results speak for themselves.”

Harris’ senior adviser, Symone Sanders, also denied the allegations. “People are not fighting every day,” Sanders said. “There’s not consternation among aides. That is not true. … I hear that there are critics. Those who talk often do not know and those who know usually are not the ones talking.” When asked about the interviews and anonymous claims published by Politico, Biden senior adviser Cedric Richmond alleged, “It’s a whisper campaign designed to sabotage her.”

Concerns over the environment of Harris’ office and her professional relationship with President Biden bring 2024 into question. Democrats are unsure of whether or not Biden will run for the presidency again, and if not, if Harris will aim to take his place.
