Kamala Harris Picks ‘Pioneer’ as Secret Service Code Name

By Steve Neavling

Sen. Kamala Harris, the presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee, has chosen her Secret Service code name, CNN reports.

Secret Service agents will refer to Harris as “Pioneer,” an apparent nod to being the first woman of color on a major party ticket.

The Secret Service began protecting Harris last week, soon after Joe Biden selected her as the candidate for vice president.

“Over time, the (Secret Service) protectees have almost taken on the persona of the call sign that they had selected,” Jonathan Wackrow, a former Secret Service special agent, tells CNN.

“With (former President Barack) Obama, ‘Renegade’ is a great example: how he went against the establishment in some of the things that he had done, and like Barbara Bush, whose call sign was ‘Tranquility,’ embodied the tranquility and peacefulness in a time of war,” Wackrow says.

Biden’s code name is “Celtic,” and his wife’s is “Capri.”

The Secret Service’s code name for President Trump is “Mogul,” and his wife’s is “Muse.”

Kamala Harris Now Has Secret Service Protection As Biden’s running mate

Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris now has Secret Service protection, CNN reports.

It’s typical for running mates to receive the protection of the Secret Service. What’s unclear is whether she has received a code name yet.

Biden’s code name is “Celtic.”

En route to her first public appearance with Biden since she was selected as his running mate, Harris was spotted in a motorcade in Washington D.C. on Wednesday.

The pair criticized Trump’s handling of the coronavirus.

“The president’s mismanagement of the pandemic has plunged us into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and we’re experiencing a moral reckoning with racism and systemic injustice that has brought a new coalition of conscience to the streets of our country,” Harris said. “America is crying out for leadership.”

Supreme Court Nominee Stumbled Over Question about Mueller Probe

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was caught off guard and stumbled with his response when asked if he had discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation with an attorney at President Trump’s attorney’s law firm.

The question by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., came nearly 12 hours after the confirmation hearing began Wednesday.

“Be sure about your answer, sir,” Harris told Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh didn’t answer the question directly, asking, “Is there a person you’re talking about? I’m not sure I know everyone who works at that law firm.”

“I’m not remembering,” any conversation, he said.

Harris, a former prosecutor, shot back, “How can you not remember whether or not you had a conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that law firm? This investigation has only been going on for so long.”

Kavanaugh asked if Harris was questioning him on a specific attorney.

“I think you’re thinking of someone and you don’t want to tell us,” Harris replied.

Kavanaugh never answered the questions, insisting he would need a “roster of people” who worked at the firm.
