Let’s take a stroll down the rabbit hole. Hang with me. I am about to spin a tale. Keep your eye on the dates. I think Harris knows a lot more than she cares to share.

Senate Judiciary Committee Advances Anti-Lynching Legislation Introduced by Harris, Booker, and Scott
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to advance the bipartisan Justice for Victims of Lynching Act of 2018, historic legislation that would criminalize lynching, attempts to lynch, and conspiracy to lynch for the first time in American history.
The legislation was originally introduced in June 2018 by U.S. Senators Kamala D. Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), and Tim Scott (R-SC).

The claim by now has fallen apart. No need to rehash the details.
Here’s the story:
She (Harris) said Smollett was the victim of “an attempted modern-day lynching” and called the actor “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know.” Harris has also used the Smollett attack to push legislation that would make lynching a federal hate crime.
Reports are that Smollett supported Harris and worked on her behalf. During an appearance at a bookstore in Concord, N.H., a female reporter asked the senator from California if she wanted to amend a tweet from Jan. 29, in which she said Smollett was the victim of “an attempted modern-day lynching” and called the actor “one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know”[…]
