White Senators Can't Stop Interrupting Kamala Harris

During today's congressional testimony by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Sen.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions became flustered under questioning from Democratic Sen.

While delivering a steady stream of questions to Sessions about the Trump administration colluding with Russia, Harris was instructed by McCain - who can be heard off camera - to let Sessions answer the question.

I love how Senator Harris gets manterrupted by her colleagues for insisting that Sessions answer.

Miller responds with, "It was a completely partisan screed", before Powers cuts him off by reposing her question, "How was that hysterical?" "It makes me nervous", the most senior public law enforcement officer in America said.

Harris followed up, "Sir, I am not asking about you the principle".

"Well if you'll let me qualify it", he loudly protested, "if I don't qualify it, you'll accuse me of lying".

HARRIS: I do want you to be honest. This is a standard game: senators get only a short time for questioning, so witnesses often meander as a way of chewing up time and running out the clock. "She was asking some tough questions". Miller called her performance "hysteria", leading to the following pleasant exchange.

The exchange was an nearly exact repeat of last week, when McCain cut in on her intense questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and committee Chairman Richard Burr told her to stop and let Rosenstein answer.

HARRIS: Did you ask that it be shown to you?

"We talked about the real principle that's at stake".

If only this tweet would get old, but nope still relevant because the white dudes keep interrupting Senator Kamala Harris.

Sessions was being asked very clear and direct yes or no questions which he tried to evade with ambiguous phrases in his answers, such as "I don't believe" and "I don't recall".
