For the second time in a week, the Democratic senator made headlines after she was interrupted by Republican counterparts during Senate Intelligence Committee hearings. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). John McCain of Arizona. So you know, the Senate can try to compel the attorney general to answer the questions. Though Sessions didn't get the post because of his racist views, the letter never made it into the record and Warren was trying to correct that. Senators on the committee, including Harris, were each allotted time to ask Sessions questions. " Sessions yesterday confirmed that episode and further admitted that Comey met with him to express concern about the meeting". The same issue arose as the intelligence chiefs NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats testified, though refusing to answer questions, last week.
Harris: You referred to a longstanding DOJ policy, can you tell us what policy it is that you're talking about? How was Sen. Harris 'hysterical?' I don't really understand that.
"Did you consult [Department of Justice policy] before you came before this committee knowing we would ask you questions about it?" the California asked.
Sessions: The policy that goes beyond just the attorney general.
"Is that policy in writing somewhere?"
"And I'm not to be able to be rushed this fast". "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.
And in the interests of public service, let's speak now to the newcomers and to the East Coast journalists and pundits who are apparently quite shook after witnessing Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), the committee chair, addressed Sen.
Harris: Are you willing or are you not willing to give him the authority to be fully independent of your ability, statutorily or legally, to fire him?
Sessions: We talked about it. I don't really under that. That's the part that sets out the president's powers, that it comes from the president's interest in protecting the confidentiality of internal executive branch deliberations and communications. And it is improper for agents of any of the department of any departments in the executive branch to waive that privilege without a clear approval of the president.
It is absolutely crucial to note, as Brzezinski did, that the nature of the insult was two-fold: Harris is a Black woman being rudely and singularly admonished by the white men around her. Here is everything you need to know from our Kamala Harris wiki.
Burr: The senator's time has expired.
"Sir, I am not asking you about the principle", Harris interjected.
