Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), who is mulling a 2020 presidential bid, on Wednesday took "full responsibility" for the allegations of sexual harassment against her longtime aide Larry Wallace, who resigned last month.
CNN host Jake Tapper asked Harris how she did not know about the alleged incidents of harassment and what she learned from the episode.
"It was a very painful experience to know that something could happen in one's office—of almost 5,000 people, granted—but that I didn't know about it," Harris said. "That being said, I take full responsibility for anything that has happened in my office. I always do and I always will. The buck stops with me."
Wallace began working for Harris when she was district attorney of San Francisco. When Harris entered the California Department of Justice and eventually the U.S. Senate, she brought in Wallace as a top aide.
Harris writes approvingly of Wallace in her new book The Truths We Hold, which was released on Tuesday.
