McCain tries to shut down Kamala Harris after Jeff Sessions confesses she makes him nervous
During Tuesday Senate hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was once again interrupted by a Republican senator as she attempted to force a member of the Trump administration to answer her questions.
Under furious questioning from the California senator over whether he had contacts with any “Russian businessmen or Russian nationals,” a flustered Sessions claimed she was accusing of him of lying, and begged off.
“If I don’t qualify, it you’ll accuse me of lying so I need to be correct as best as I can,” Sessions demurred.
“I do want you to be honest,” Harris replied.
“And I’m not to be able to be rushed this fast,” Sessions remarked. ” It makes me nervous.”
As Harris resumed her questions, Sen. John McCain — off camera — rushed to Sessions’ defense, interrupting Harris with, “Chairman, the witness should be allowed to answer the question.
Chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) then told both McCain and Harris, “Senators, you will allow the chair to control the hearing.”
Following the hearing, Harris took to Twitter to go after Sessions.
