The Senate Judiciary committee could end up cutting the size of its 21 member committee. Fox News reports:
Reducing the size of the 21-member Senate Judiciary Committee is reportedly among the actions being considered by Senate Republicans as they prepare for the next Congress.
If that happens, Sen. Kamala Harris of California — a high-profile Democrat who is considered a possible candidate for her party’s 2020 presidential nomination — could be left off the panel, according to a report.
That’s because the first-term senator is the judiciary committee’s most junior member, and would be among the first to go if the panel is downsized, the Washington Post reported.
This could create conflict in the Senate, and will either remove Kamala Harris from the committee or bruise the ego of a more senior Dem who does not have Presidential ambitions.
