Kirsten Powers shuts down Trump aide who called Kamala Harris 'hysterical'

McCain had also interrupted Harris last week during the questioning of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein. Kamala Harris "hysterical", implying that the comment was sexist.

So senators, step aside, stop interrupting and let the woman do her job.

Being a black woman in a white-male dominated US Congress is tough but Senator Harris continues to be a star.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies about the Russian Federation probe at an opening hearing conducted by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) on Tuesday, June 13, 2017. And social media, as it's wont to do, went ballistic, mostly but not always in Harris' favor.

"How was Sen. Harris hysterical?" she asked on "Anderson Cooper 360" on Tuesday night. "Did you not ask your staff to show you the policy that would be the basis for refusing to answer the majority of questions that have been asked of you?" After President Trump nominated Sessions, Warren wanted to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King that condemned the former Alabama Senator for racial bias.

Here are three things that you can do about that, as told by Juliet Williams, professor of gender studies at UCLA. Again, the witness filibustered and again the questioner was repeatedly interrupted. But he did not cite any specific DOJ rules, although he continued to refer to an established set of policy as if it existed.

"Senator, I'm very sensitive about time and I'd like to have a very lengthy conversation and explain that all to you", Rosenstein responded.

Harris: Sir, I'm just asking you about ... "I'd say I see this happen ... two to three times a week?" Harris then asked Sessions about how he communicated with Donald Trump both during the campaign and following election night and pressed him on a Department of Justice policy that he referenced as the reason why he couldn't directly comment on his conversations with Trump regarding Russian Federation.

Comey: Lynch Asked Him to Call Clinton Investigation 'a Matter'
Comey said that after the tarmac meeting he considered whether a special counsel should be appointed, and decided not. When I said, we have opened a matter, they all reported the FBI has an investigation open.

Djokovic drops 1st 2 sets against Thiem in Paris
This year, the bracket brought Djokovic to Thiem in the quarters, and it was the Austrian native moving on this time. It is the fewest number of games Nadal has lost on his way to the last four on the Paris clay.

Mr Sessions testified publicly as part of the committee's ongoing investigation into whether Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government to influence the 2016 presidential election.

After playing the initial clip of Session's testimony, Joy Behar noted, with a remarkable lack of self awareness, that Sessions, who was forced to rush through testimony given under threat of perjury, needed to avoid getting his "panties in a twist". If I don't qualify it you'll accuse me of lying.

"Chairman", McCain protested to Sen.

A CNN video of the hearing shows Harris pushing Sessions for a yes-or-no answer as to whether he'd based his decision to invoke executive privilege on any concrete, written policy or rule, until McCain broke in and addressed Burr, saying, "Chairman, the witness should be allowed to answer the question".

Sessions: We talked about it. I don't really understand that. And that members-one of them is confidentiality of communications.

Sessions: I don't recall that. Burr said Harris' time had expired.

Sessions: And I'm not to be able to be rushed this fast.
