Biden’s aides praise Harris after critical CNN report

West Wing aides came to Vice President Harris’ defense following the release of a CNN report detailing the frustrations among the vice president’s team and more generally among White House officials over her role in the administration.

“For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner for @POTUS, but a fearless leader who has taken on the key and important challenges facing the country, from the right to vote to addressing the root causes of migration and the expansion of broadband “.

Several Harris officials also dismissed the CNN report without directly citing it, praising their boss and criticizing efforts to shift the focus of his recently completed trip to Paris.

CNN on a report published detailed frustration within Harris’s circle Sunday night at not being in a position to succeed, citing conversations with numerous Democratic operatives and White House officials. The report also indicates that some West Wing aides have on occasion dismissed Harris’s problems and been exasperated by dysfunction in the vice president’s office.

Harris’s presidential campaign was plagued with staffing problems and several reports have indicated that she has moved on to her time as vice president. At least two members of the advanced press staff who are responsible for planning logistics for the trips left within months after Harris and Biden took office.

Harris has been tasked with leading Biden on a series of long-standing and largely intractable issues. Biden said he would lead efforts to address the root causes of migration in Central America, effectively making it the face of a record number of migrants crossing the southern US border.

And Harris is leading the administration’s push on voting rights, something she asked to do, but Congress has failed to pass any legislation on the issue and no progress seems imminent.
