  • Awake Mc Cain Drills Sessions on Recent Interest In Russia Interrupts Kamala Harris Again

It is nearly as if Senator Harris is not being treated the same as her colleagues. "If there was a normal administration in power, she would probably not be as prominent", said John J. Pitney, a politics professor at Claremont McKenna College in California. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

During a discussion after the hearing on Anderson Cooper 360, Trump surrogate and former Trump aide Jason Miller remarked that Harris was "hysterical" during her question-and-answer period with Sessions, which correspondent Kirsten Powers called him out on.

Less than a week before the Sessions hearing, Politico described National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats as having "stonewalled" in their appearance before the same committee "when asked about news reports that Trump asked each of them to downplay or refute the FBI's probe [of] whether Trump's associates colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election".

"Senator Harris wanted to know the concrete details of Sessions' secret policy about secrets, and that did not sit well with other members of the committee", said Colbert. Her constant interruptions of the witness showed utter disrespect for the institution, but made her "presidential timbre" to her peers and the media.

The Tuesday committee hearing with Jeff Sessions is a case in point. Sen.

After playing the initial clip of Session's testimony, Joy Behar noted, with a remarkable lack of self awareness, that Sessions, who was forced to rush through testimony given under threat of perjury, needed to avoid getting his "panties in a twist".

Harris: Sir, I'm just asking you about the DOJ policy you referred to.

Chairman Burr: Senators will allow the chair to control the hearing. The attorney general learned the hard way that when Kamala Harris comes for you, you'd better be prepared.

Trump's attorney general to face Russian Federation questions
A day after The Washington Post reported that, Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation. Media reports last week said Mr Sessions had offered to resign because of tensions with the president.

"Mr. Chairman, they should be allowed to answer the question", he interjected.

She was the only senator to be interrupted and reprimanded, despite the fact that many senators - most noticeably Sen.

McCain complained that Harris was not letting Rosenstein answer, and Burr subsequently chastised her and cut her off.

She was in the midst of striking a major blow to Sessions' testimony, a move that would have brought Sessions' credibility to its knees. "She didn't shout, actually, but even if she did, I'm just saying that they both were asking a lot of tough questions and I think calling her hysterical is probably a little gendered thing to say", Powers said. How was Sen. Harris 'hysterical?' I don't really understand that. "She was very dogged".

Miller said he thought there was no real effort to get a real question answered.

On Tuesday, Democratic senator Ron Wyden tweeted that Ms Harris was again doing her job. The more information the better, so I think you can qualify as much as you need to, and especially considering the source. Senator Burr got in on the fun once again, reprimanding Harris to "let him answer".

But men can label Harris as "hysterical" all they want.

The CNN commentator and Trump supporter then chimed in: "Hysteria is a neutral quality", he said.
