The White House is “intentionally putting her in a position where they can have a plausible excuse to move past her. The article cites a possibility of moving her into a Supreme Court position in a way to promote her up and out of the way to make room for someone like Pete Buttgieg,” Gray said on Hill.TV’s “Rising.”

Gray’s comments come off the back of a CNN report that highlighted frustrations between Harris’s team and other White House officials.

After the CNN report, White House aides ran to Harris's side on Twitter, tweeting their support for the work Harris has done. 

Gray said the White House should be more concerned about Harris not receiving support among the American people than a media report. 

“The people have not been that fond of Kamala Harris. She has historically low approval ratings for vice president especially considering she hasn’t done much of anything,” Gray said.
