Kamala Harris, Biden’s VP Pick, Promoted Group That Provided Bail For Alleged Violent Criminals
A new report has found that Sen. Kamala Harris, the vice presidential pick for the Joe Biden presidential campaign, promoted a bail fund group that several other Biden staffers donated to during the George Floyd protests, that has now provided bail for individuals who are violent criminals. This includes one individual who is an alleged murderer and convicted rapist.
The report was put together by FOX 9 and revealed that the Minnesota Freedom Fund has, in recent weeks, put up bail for several individuals including Darnika Floyd, who has charged with second-degree murder for stabbing a friend to death, along with Christopher Boswell, who is facing sexual assault and kidnapping charges.
The group provided $100,000 for Floyd and $350,000 for Boswell.
Check out the details from Fox News:
MFF received about $35 million in the wake of Floyd’s death — which came after a Minneapolis Police Department officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes — with at least some of it coming from a number of Biden staffers who donated to the group and then tweeted about it. And Harris, D-Calif., a former prosecutor who served as the attorney general of California for six years, promoted the fund herself in a June 1 tweet, telling her followers that the group would be able to help protesters swept up in clashes with police as unrest gripped Minneapolis.
If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota. https://t.co/t8LXowKIbw

But MFF, which received so much money amid the unrest that it asked people to start donating to other groups instead, didn’t just bail out protesters who may have been victims of overzealous policing. FOX 9 also reported that Jaleel Stallings, who is accused of shooting at police during the May riots, was bailed out by MFF for $75,000. Donovan Boone, who was charged with invading the home of his ex-girlfriend and choking her, was bailed out for $3,000. Boone reportedly never showed up to his court date.
Harris’ former competitor in the Democratic primary Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., like Harris is a former prosecutor and was involved in a case with Boswell, the man facing sexual assault and kidnapping charges. She prosecuted a rape case against Boswell in 2001 when she was the Hennepin County attorney. FOX 9 reported Boswell was convicted for rape on one other occasion as well.
The optics for this are not very good.
However, given the fact the mainstream media is so heavily involved in crafting an anti-Trump narrative and pushing forward the Biden/Harris ticket in order to appease their Democratic overlords, you can guarantee you won’t see anything about this in the news coverage of CNN or ABC News.
