Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) objected to her rudeness, saying Harris was not allowing Sessions to answer the question.
Senator Kamala Harris who was rude in questioning and had to be cut off for second week in a row at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing. She has to remember she is not in court trying a murder case. There is a difference. Why is it when women are in a position such as a senator that they go overboard and try to show their authority rather than gather useful information. Her tone of voice was rude – which is typical.
The first time was last week as she questioned Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
On Tuesday, it was as she asked questions to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
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.
Sessions claimed he could refuse to answer questions the president may later exert privilege upon.
Sessions declined to answer Harris’s question as she pushed for a yes or no answer as to whether he had reviewed a policy or rule that was in writing.
“You knew that you would be asked these questions when you relied on that policy,” Harris interjected. “Did you not ask your staff to see the rule that would be the basis of your refusing to answer…”
Again, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) then objected, saying Harris was not allowing Sessions to answer the question.
“Chairman, the witness should be allowed to answer the question,” McCain said.
As Sessions chuckled at the commotion, Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said he would run his own committee but instructed Harris to allow Sessions to answer.
(Is this Burr character another RINO? Undoubtedly, he thought he would be called a racist if he chastized Harris and so McCain had to step in.)
Sessions then gave her his answer.
