Columnist Kirsten Powers: 'How was Sen. Harris hysterical?'

Galeno Paniagua | 14 Junio, 2017, 11:00

Can I just go back to something that Jason [Miller] said?

The real question here is: if Sessions was answering the questions honestly and accurately, what would he have to be nervous about?

(CNN) - For the second time in just a week, Sen.

As Harris badgered Sessions to give a straight answer, quickly asking follow-up questions in order to make the most of her short time, Sessions grew flustered.

President Trump Accuses Fired FBI Director James Comey Of Lying Under Oath
Trump insisted on June 9 that he is being truthful and he is "100 percent" willing to testify under oath. Bush. "Who would do that?" "I think he's proven himself to be a liar in all of this".

HARRIS: Did you not consult it before you came before this committee knowing we would ask you questions about it?

POWERS: I think she asked a lot of questions, actually. Harris was pressuring Sessions and Sessions was tap dancing artfully when John McCain suddenly interrupted to complain that Harris wasn't allowing Sessions to respond.

HARRIS: I do want you to be honest.

Before Sessions could answer, McCain interceded.

Uber CEO Travis Kalanick says he will take leave of absence
A company can be aggressive yet have strong values, said Joseph Holt, a business ethics professor at the University of Notre Dame. As hinted by reports over the weekend, Travis Kalanick will indeed be taking a temporary leave of absence from Uber .

Sessions was being asked very clear and direct yes or no questions which he tried to evade with ambiguous phrases in his answers, such as "I don't believe" and "I don't recall".

A reprieve thus granted, Sessions offered word salad - not on Harris' question about a written policy, but on the abstractions she was trying to cut through.

"If any brief interaction occurred in passing with the Russian ambassador during that reception, I do not remember it", Sessions said.

Speaking for myself, I'd guess that McCain's interruption was likely due to several things: Harris is a woman; Harris is new to the Senate; Harris is a Democrat; Harris's questioning was pretty aggressive; Sessions is a former senator and colleague of McCain's; and McCain is a cranky old man. "Can Sessions point to the policy, in writing, that allows him to not answer a whole host of our questions today".

LeBron James will not play 3-on-3 basketball in Olympics
That, of course, could change in the coming years leading up to the Tokyo Games. And James wasn't the only member of his family who felt this way.

If only this tweet would get old, but nope still relevant because the white dudes keep interrupting Senator Kamala Harris.
