Sen. Jeff Sessions makes his way Jan. 31 to the Senate Policy luncheons in the Capitol
17 June, 2017, 11:26
As my Slate colleague Christina Cauterucci noted of the Twitter reaction at the time, "two long-serving white male legislators working together to stop a new female senator of color from getting an answer to a simple question was not a good look".
"I think she asked a lot of questions", Powers said.
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.
"Is that policy in writing somewhere?"
Questioning Trump administration officials during hearings without breaking a sweat when interrupted by Republican colleagues.
This week, it's her questioning - either tough or rude, depending on one's vantage point - of Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee that has pushed Harris once again into the headlines and onto the TV talking-head shows.
Sessions sometimes smiled at Harris. While Democrat Senators tended to assume Sessions was attempting to avoid answering questions regarding his conversations with #President Trump or Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, Republicans leaned toward leniency, allowing Sessions the choice to withhold answers that he deemed private.
Sessions added a complaint: "I don't like to be rushed this fast".

While Rishabh Pant is expected to open the innings alongside Dhawan. "I am very happy that I am selected for West Indies tour". Both players put in some really good performances in the Ranji Trophy last season and are seen as future stars of the team.
Harris is a Black woman that has always been passionate about her career, and that same passion can be seen in her delivery method of questioning in the last two televised hearings. Richard Burr, R-N.C. Sessions showed great patience with the over-the-top rudeness of Harris.
McCain: should be allowed to answer the question.
After Powers responded that Harris was "dogged" in questioning Sessions, but so too was Sen.
McCain complained that Harris was not letting Rosenstein answer, and Burr subsequently chastised her and cut her off.
Harris spokesman Tyrone Gayle told the Associated Press that the senator "has run countless investigations, and will follow the facts wherever they may lead to get the truth for the American people". And we talked about the real principle at stake is one that I have some appreciation towards, having spent 15 years in the Department of Justice, 12 as United States attorney, and that principle is that the Constitution provides the head of the executive branch certain privileges.
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. Kamala Harris "hysterical", implying that the comment was sexist. Even Jeff Sessions admitted she makes him nervous.
HOSTIN: They would never do it, and I know Kamala Harris.
"I think so", Sessions replied. "I don't think that Senator Wyden was really trying to get to the bottom of answers either". "Ron Wyden was, would you say that?"
"And yet it's just women that usually are called hysterical", she said.
