Is Harris on her way out?

A strange thing happened last night on the Fox News show called "Primetime." That is the show that has a different host every week. This week it's Jesse Waters and Waters for the first time speculated on a rumor. It seems that Fox News Congressional correspondent Chad Pergram heard something from his sources. Pergram is an American award-winning journalist in Washington D.C. who has been a political reporter at Fox News, and a chief correspondent for Capital News. For his efforts in the broadcasting field, Pergram won the Edward R. Murrow Award and the Joan Barone Award for reporting on Capitol Hill.
'So I got a message recently from someone who knows Capitol Hill very well and they suggested I should familiarize myself with the process to confirm a vacancy for the vice president in the Senate and in the House,' Pergram claimed.
A recent CNN article claimed that the Biden-Harris relationship had soured:
(CNN) Worn out by what they see as entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus , key West Wing aides have largely thrown up their hands at Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff -- deciding there simply isn't time to deal with them right now, especially at a moment when President Joe Biden faces quickly multiplying legislative and political concerns .
The exasperation runs both ways. Interviews with nearly three dozen former and current Harris aides, administration officials, Democratic operatives, donors and outside advisers -- who spoke extensively to CNN -- reveal a complex reality inside the White House. Many in the vice president's circle fume that she's not being adequately prepared or positioned, and instead is being sidelined. The vice president herself has told several confidants she feels constrained in what she's able to do politically. And those around her remain wary of even hinting at future political ambitions, with Biden's team highly attuned to signs of disloyalty, particularly from the vice president."
Followed up by this:
So the question of what Pergram's sources told him is upon us. Democrats, in congress are in serious trouble when it comes to the 2022 midterm elections. A generic poll has Republicans with a double digit lead over them. At least one congressional democrat announced that she won't bother running next year. The presidential prospects for democrats aren't much better as the president has a 38% approval rating and the vice president has a 28% approval rating, so maybe, just maybe somebody has to go. There are even rumors of the Harris people calling the Biden staff "racist." Although that is what many progressives tend to do, Biden can't afford that label. He depends on the black vote, so maybe that is all the more reason for a change.
Jesse Waters last night:
'Our Capitol Hill Correspondent Chad Pergram tells us he's been hearing whispers suggesting there could be some new high-profile confirmation hearings on the horizon in the House of Representatives,' said Watters during the segment."
'Why is this a big deal? Because the house does not confirm normal nominees. But it does confirm vice-presidential nominees. Does this have something to do with Kamala Harris? It's been no secret she's been running out of favor with the Biden team, ' he added.
I suppose the best way would be to convince Harris to resign.
Time will tell.
