Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris and her husband Douglas Emhoff sat down with CBS News’ Jane Pauley Tuesday in Washington, D.C., for their first joint television interview since the election. Here is a preview of their conversation:
JANE PAULEY: They’re going for impeachment and Joe Biden is focused on the first 100 days. Don’t get in the way of that! Can you have it both ways? What do you say to your colleagues on the Hill? What do you say to Joe Biden?
VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT KAMALA HARRIS: Well I’m obviously with Joe, and for a lot of reasons. And I think everybody has got to play in position. And as an incoming administration, our first priority has to be to get control of this pandemic and get people back to work and get kids back to school. And that’s our focus.
JANE PAULEY: You clearly are for or not for impeachment?
VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT KAMALA HARRIS: The congress is going to make its decision. Yeah.
Harris also talked with Pauley about her reactions to the siege at Capitol Hill, President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, the nation’s battle with the COVID-19 pandemic and together the couple opened up about their relationship and what they’re looking forward to once Harris and President-Elect Joe Biden take office.
