Former staffers of Vice President Kamala Harris are speaking out after a damaging CNN report accused her of creating a hostile work environment.
CNN interviewed nearly three dozen current and former staffers for Harris which showed there is significant dysfunction within her team.
One former staffer accused Harris of inflicting a “constant amount of soul-destroying criticism.”
Multiple top aides on Harri’s team have quit, including veteran communications chief Ashley Etienne who previously worked for Obama, Joe Biden, and Nancy Pelosi.
“Harris is struggling with a rocky relationship with some parts of the White House,” CNN reported about Harris, who once even accused Joe Biden of being racist during the Democratic primary race.
In the wave of this horrible publicity, an article from The Washington Post is titled, “A Kamala Harris staff exodus reignites questions about her leadership style — and her future ambitions.”
“Staffers who worked for Harris before she was vice president said one consistent problem was that Harris would refuse to wade into briefing materials prepared by staff members, then berate employees when she appeared unprepared,” the report states.
“It’s clear that you’re not working with somebody who is willing to do the prep and the work,” a former staffer said.
“With Kamala you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why,” a former staffer says about Harris’ behavior behind closed doors.
Former Democratic strategist and Harris aide Gil Duran quit after working for her for only five months in 2013.
Duran explained, “One of the things we’ve said in our little text groups among each other is what is the common denominator through all this and it’s her.”
“Who are the next talented people you’re going to bring in and burn through and then have [them] pretend they’re retiring for positive reasons?”
A rumor circulating in Washington, D.C. that the White House will get rid of Kamala Harris by nominating her to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
One passage from the CNN report has “sent shockwaves across Washington, D.C.,” Daily Wire notes.
Inside the CNN article, here’s the quote that caught everyone’s eye:
“Defenders and people who care for Harris are getting frantic. When they’re annoyed, some pass around a recent Onion story mocking her lack of more substantive work, one with the headline, “White House Urges Kamala Harris To Sit At Computer All Day In Case Emails Come Through.”
When they’re depressed, they bat down the Aaron Sorkin-style rumor that Biden might try to replace her by nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy. That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” said the piece.
With Kamala Harris looking unelectable, the Democrats are considering the nuclear option.

More from Western Journal:
Such a move is reported to admittedly be “improbable,” but reflects desperation on the part of the Biden administration, wrestling with not only its own low poll numbers but with those of Harris, which are even lower.
This raises the question: How did Harris get to be vice president to begin with, especially when her presidential run in 2020 was so poor that she had to make an early exit from the campaign?
You know the answer — and it was voiced on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson program by Larry Elder, talk show host and unsuccessful Republican gubernatorial candidate.
“The only reason, in my opinion, she became vice president is because she checked all the boxes. The Democrats in this woke era are no longer going to have two white males on the ticket,” Elder said.
