Kamala Harris Silenced During Sessions Meeting

14 Juin 2017

Watch her repeatedly interrupt Attorney General Jeff Sessions as she tries to get all her brilliant questions in.

Keep it up, tweeted one chorus, encouraging the tough African-American woman to stand up to the panel of mostly white men.

"You knew that you would be asked these questions when you relied on that policy", Harris interjected. How was Senator Harris hysterical?

Sessions: I don't recall that. And then, during the Sessions testimony, it happened again: Harris keeps getting interrupted by the GOP, and it's more than fair to ask why they seem to be singling her out. And each time, Harris dug in harder.

"Did you have any communication with any Russian businessmen or any Russian nationals?" The Attorney General wanted his hearing to be public, but it became clear nearly immediately that a public hearing did not necessarily mean that the public would be getting any answers at all.

Sessions: So the answer is, yes, I consulted.

Sessions: Well, you let me qualify - if I don't qualify, it you'll accuse me of lying so I need to be correct as best as I can.

If that happens, Corbyn will demand a chance to try to form a government by uniting progressive factors in the House of Commons . After House Speaker John Bercow was re-elected without challenge, a chastened May quipped: "At least someone got a landslide".

Sessions: And I'm not to be able to be rushed this fast. "It makes me nervous".

The probe continued with Sessions completing his responses but not answering Harris' questions head-on.

Tuesday evening, the stand-off was discussed incessantly on the TV talk circuit. Kamala Harris was interrupted by a GOP colleague while questioning a witness testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

While praising Sessions' testimony, Miller said the attorney general "knocked away the hysteria from Kamala Harris and others who wanted to make this a partisan show".

Harris had been asking whether Sessions had reviewed any written rule giving him permission to refuse to answer questions without invoking executive privilege, which Sessions had done throughout the hearing. Her parents met as civil rights activists at the University of California-Berkeley, and got Harris involved in fighting for social justice when she was a baby by wheeling her to protests in a stroller."I grew up with a stroller's-eye view of the civil rights movement, and often I joke that as a child, I was surrounded by adults marching and shouting for this thing called justice", she says on her website.

Despite Miller's assertion that his perspective was "objective", and Jeffrey Lord's contemptible attempt to degrade her point, Powers persisted.

Eventually, as is usually the case, the drama moved from the hearing room to the Internet.
