Kamala Harris has the mic now, so everybody needs to sit down

15 Juin 2017

In speaking to CNN's Anderson Cooper about Sessions' performance at the Senate intelligence committee hearing, Miller said the attorney general "knocked away some of the hysteria from Kamala Harris and some of the Democrats who wanted to make this a big partisan show".

Jason Miller, now one of Trump's in-house surrogates at the network, accused Harris of "hysteria" for her dogged line of questioning during Tuesday's testimony from Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Committee Chair Sen. Richard Burr then stepped in and said: "Senators, we'll allow the chair to control the hearing. Sen".

The clip showing Sessions' elfin face screwing into an aggravated mask as Harris zapped query after query at him will be on everyone's loop for years to come. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Sen.

Actor George Takei and others on Twitter came to Harris' defense after the incident.

Despite her white male colleagues cutting off the only woman of color on the committee, Kamala Harris has been persistent in interrogating witnesses and making them sweat. Harris released a statement which read, "I am honored to even be mentioned, but intend to continue my work for the people of California as Attorney General". "I'm absolutely not thinking about that at all", she told CNN senior political commentator David Axelrod. "I mean, she was asking some tough questions".

She grew up watching her African American dad and Indian American mother protest for civil rights in Berkeley and took that fierce fight for justice with her to law school.

The first time it happened, he had to be carted off of the field on a backboard against the New York Giants in Week 11. The first-round pick said the Bears told him not to work out this offseason until his head cleared up.

Her dogged attempts at Tuesday's hearing into Russian-Trump connections to get Sessions to share what he knew and when he knew it once again turned a congressional session into a less than decorous brouhaha. "Sen. Harris, let him (Sessions) answer".

On Tuesday, Democratic senator Ron Wyden tweeted that Ms Harris was again doing her job. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) during her questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on June 7.

Miller replied that during the exchange between Harris and attorney general, it "didn't seem like there was any effort to try to get to a real question or to the bottom of things".

Asked to comment on Tuesday's exchanges, a spokesman for Harris pointed to her Twitter account: "It's unacceptable that Sessions - the top law enforcement official in the country - can not name his legal basis for evading questions", she wrote. "I don't think that Senator Wyden was really trying to get to the bottom of answers either". The chair is going to exercise its right to allow the witnesses to answer the question, and the committee is on notice to provide the witnesses the courtesy, which has not been extended all the way across, extend the courtesy for questions to get answered.

Harris went to Howard University in Washington D.C. where she majored in economics and political science. "It's just women that are usually called hysterical", said Powers.
