(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Kamala Harris (D.-Calif.) appeared on MSNBC on Thursday morning and then tweeted out a clip from her appearance saying that President Trump “has been the most corrupt, unpatriotic president we’ve ever had.”

During her interview with MSNBC, Harris said Trump was “probably the most corrupt” president America has ever had.

In the text of her Tweet, she did not use the word “probably” and instead said “Trump has been the most corrupt.”

“It is sad to see the level of desperation that some people are willing to go through to protect someone who has been probably the most corrupt, unethical, most unpatriotic president we’ve ever had,” Harris said in the air on MSNBC.

“Donald Trump has been the most corrupt, unpatriotic president we’ve ever had, so it’s sad to see the level of desperation congressional Republicans will stoop to to protect him,” she said in the Tweet sending out a clip of herself from the MSNBC interview.

During the interview, Harris said she would stop campaigning in Iowa and return to Washington, D.C. to be able to attend Senate proceedings if the House moves to impeach Trump.

“Listen, I’m running for president. I need to be in Iowa full time,” said Harris. “I will tell you, if the impeachment inquiry gets to the United States Senate, I will be there against my political interests to be in Iowa every day.

“This has to be a moment where everyone says that we took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic,” she said.

“The underlying issue here is that a foreign government was invited to interfere in our election for the highest office in our land,” she said. “This is so basic. This is so basic."

Here is an excerpt from Harris’s interview with MSNBC where she talks about what she will do if the House impeaches Trump:

“Listen, I’m running for president. I need to be in Iowa full time. I will tell you, if the impeachment inquiry gets to the United States Senate, I will be there against my political interests to be in Iowa every day.

“This has to be a moment where everyone says that we took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic.

“The underlying issue here is that a foreign government was invited to interfere in our election for the highest office in our land. This is so basic. This is so basic.

“And, you know, so it is, it is sad to see the level of desperation that some people are willing to go through to protect someone who has been probably the most corrupt, unethical, most unpatriotic president we’ve ever had. You can disagree with policy, but this is a whole other thing.

“And, again, this is not like we don’t know what happened. We know what happened. It happened in plain view. So, what is this process about? And, you know, I do believe that this is a moment that certainly our Framers anticipated, and the question for each of us—and particularly those of us that took an oath—is to look in a mirror and ask whether knowing what are the foundational ideals of our country are we willing to fulfill our constitutional responsibilities or are we going to play a political games?”
