Kamala Harris, a prosecutor and a senator

Kamala Harris Got Shut Down After Asking an Incredibly Important Question. Again.

Asked to comment on Tuesday's exchanges, a spokesman for Harris pointed to her Twitter account: "It's unacceptable that Sessions - the top law enforcement official in the country - can not name his legal basis for evading questions", she wrote. "In this setting and this climate, the more information the better, so I think you can qualify as much information as you need to". Sessions said he had followed a "principle", which apparently is more of an oral tradition or something.

"She was interrupted for asking tough questions".

For much of the questioning Sessions is faux-cowed, hands folded and shoulders hunched.

"You raised your right hand here today, and you said that you would solemnly tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth".

Sessions: Well, I think most cabinet people as the witnesses you had before you earlier, those individuals declined to comment.

Bila also pointed out similar discussions during the debates between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton. "OK, just wanted to clear that up".

After watching the brutal takedown of Sessions long enough, Arizona Sen.

Harris: the DOJ policy you referred to ... Um, that statement did not go too well."She is someone who has great instincts about how to get engaged in a fight", Burton said.But not everyone is buying into the hype. Harris was in the midst of pressing Sessions to name that policy, explain it, and say whether he's reviewed it since when Sen. As a member of the senate intelligence committee responsible for investigating Russian interference with the 2016 election and connections between the country and Trump campaign officials, Harris has landed a star role in the country's political drama.

SESSIONS: We talked about it. The policy is based ... The attorney general learned the hard way that when Kamala Harris comes for you, you'd better be prepared. I think it's like they're uncomfortable with women asking hard questions.

BILA: That's fine, but saying - do you know how many headline I read?

"Well, will you let me qualify it", Sessions responded.

The hearing on Tuesday was Round Two for Harris.

After the exchange, Harris tweeted: "It was a simple question".

Harris: Did you not ask your staff to show you the policy that would be the basis for your refusing to answer the ... They only had five minutes to ask questions.

The tense moment in Harris's questioning of Sessions occurred six days after she was reprimanded by Burr for what the chairman said was a lack of "courtesy" in her and other senators' questions to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

"If you watch her, she doesn't often times let people answer the question, that's a fact", Jedediah Bila then said. At some point, Harris was on the attack, Sessions was floundering, and the white men decided they had enough. [To Burr]: Thank you.

For me, Harris represents every woman who's ever made a decision to stand up and be heard, no matter how large or small our platform.

Harris: Mr. Sessions for a yes or no.

Before Sessions could answer, McCain again jumped out of his mental fog phone booth to intervene.
