Sen. Kamala Harris Again Interrupted by Male Colleagues

Harris was seeking to draw some honesty from Sessions when it was her time to interrogate the man. Powers asks Miller, narrowing her eyes in confusion. Kamala Harris during Tuesday's Senate testimony on the Russian Federation investigation, they inadvertently handed her a megaphone.

Liberals took to social media to proclaim that it was Harris who was interrupted and silenced - not Sessions - and pointed to a similar instance the week before when she was admonished for doing the same thing during former FBI Director James Comey's testimony. 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. 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.

As Sessions chuckled at the commotion, Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said he would run his own committee but instructed Harris to allow Sessions to answer.

Miller repeated that he felt Harris was trying to "shout down" Sessions, which drew a further retort from Powers. Same question, simple words, different targets.

"If you watch her, she doesn't often times let people answer the question, that's a fact", Jedediah Bila then said.

HARRIS: Did you ask that it be shown to you? He did a Sessions impersonation yelling about her aggressive line of questions and being scared of how many verbs she was using.

After playing back a clip from the week's Senate Intelligence Committee hearing where Harris attempted to expedite the questioning of Sessions, co-hosts of the show questioned whether or not it was "sexist" that Sessions' interrupted Harris's inquiries for the goal of clarity. Harris let him answer. Harris, however, will not be seen creating moments of candor; she will instead continue to be a woman who is passionate about her role in America, and a woman that deserves our respect. "I don't understand that".

House, Senate investigators seek Trump tapes, Comey memos
Richman confirmed Thursday that he was the friend Comey testified who had discussed the memos with the press. Asked whether he would be willing to provide his version under oath, Trump responded, "100 percent".

"I think every woman who has any degree of power and those who don't knows how it feels to experience what Kamala Harris experienced yesterday", said Laura R. Walker, the chief executive of New York Public Radio.

"How was Sen. Kamala D. Harris hysterical?". Kamala Harris. Despite being the only Black woman in the Senate and one of very few female senators - both tremendous accomplishments - she was still treated in a substandard manner.

"I think so", Sessions replied. Ron Wyden (D-OR) was at the hearing.

At another point, Sessions implored Harris to slow down her questioning because she was making him "nervous". The chair is going to exercise its right to allow the witnesses to answer the question, and the committee is on notice to provide the witnesses the courtesy, which has not been extended all the way across, extend the courtesy for questions to get answered.

CNN contributor and Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord added to the fiery exchange between Powers and Miller, saying, "Hysteria is a neutral quality".

Hostin said, "Calling a woman hysterical is sexist".
