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

Kamala Harris makes Jeff Sessions nervous

It the makes me nervous.

SHAPIRO: Well, why wouldn't he just say, I'm claiming executive privilege?

The left has come out swinging each time Harris has been interrupted by her male colleagues, with fellow female lawmakers including Senator Elizabeth Warren vocalizing solidarity across social media.

Before the hearing, Harris had clarified her stance on Twitter, saying that she would "focus on gathering the facts and information surrounding a few questions".

Sessions, clearly flustered, answered, "Well, will you let me qualify it?"

Sessions: The policy that goes beyond just the attorney general.

Harris had been asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein about whether he would sign a letter stating that the special counsel appointed to lead the Russian Federation probe would be fully independent from Department of Justice.

Sessions: I don't recall it, but I have to tell you I can not testify to what was said as we were standing at the Republican convention before the podium where I spoke.

Tuesday, at Sessions's heated public hearing, McCain and Burr did the exact same thing, trying to shut Harris down when she tried to do her job-and their job, as well-and push for actual answers. Richard Burr's (R-N.C.) own two cents, who was quick to let both Harris and McCain know who ran the show.

Australia frustrated by rain at the Oval
Whereas the last ODI between Australia and Bangladesh which witnessed accomplishment was held more than six years ago. Having beaten Bangladesh in the opener, England have 2 points and will take on New Zealand on Tuesday.

IF THERE WAS ANYTHING to be learned from the appearance of Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee, it is that the Trump administration is led by people whose allegiance to the president far exceeds their love of country.

Chairman Burr: Senators will allow the chair to control the hearing. Let's listen to this exchange, starting with Senator Warner. Fair. But she should be able to ask the question. She was also interrupted by Burr and McCain while questioning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein the previous week.

A very simple question that should be asked is: "Did Donald Trump or any of his associates in the campaign collude with Russian Federation in hacking those e-mails and releasing them to the public?" Harris asked Sessions if he had any contact with Russian that had not been disclosed previously, or if he had communicated with any Russian businessmen or nationals. If she were a white male, she would be praised for her tough questions and no-nonsense demeanor.

The women of ABC's "The View" went on the offensive during Friday's airing of the daytime talk show while discussing Attorney General Jeff Sessions' interruption of Sen.

At both hearings, Harris was the only committee member so admonished for demanding short answers to questions posed during her five-minute allowance, even though others had made the same demand.

Harris asked him straight up: What is that policy and did you actually look at it?

McCain: The attorney general should be allowed to answer the questions.

Harris: Mr. Sessions for a yes or no. In addition, at these hearings, each Senator is given a limited time to speak and frankly, there is not much time for consideration of those testifying in terms of considering their "ability to be rushed".
