No, Kamala Harris Wasn't Being 'Hysterical,' CNN Analyst Says

No, Kamala Harris Wasn't Being 'Hysterical,' CNN Analyst Says

"Senators will allow the chair to control the hearing", Burr said, pointing to McCain.

CAMEROTA: OK. So they were arguing that he should be able to answer the question.

When Harris then pressed Sessions on a Justice Department policy he cited as his rationale for not answering questions, McCain spoke up.

Harris was questioning Sessions at a Senate intelligence committee hearing Tuesday about his legal basis for refusing to answer some questions.

Harris, who has burst into the national political arena during the federal probe into Russia's meddling in last year's presidential election, seems to be taking the criticism of her questioning approach in stride.

Miller: "She was trying to shout down Attorney General Sessions and I thought it was way out of bounds. Wyden was trying to get to the bottom of answers either", Miller said.

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".

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., endured the spotlight in February when she was cut off by a Republican: "Silencing @SenKamalaHarris for not being "courteous" enough is just unbelievable", Warren tweeted last Wednesday. Ron Wyden was tougher on Sessions than Harris was but wouldn't be described as "hysterical".

BRZEZINSKI: This is a secondary story given the seriousness of the nature of the questions being asked, but it's an important story.

It's a great feeling". "And you can't describe it". "I wore short shorts so you could see my undershorts underneath". He was incredible all season long. "We don't even have to speak about it", Iguodala said.

The pitch for cash stemmed from Tuesday's Senate Intelligence Committee grilling of Sessions.

"So, did you not consult [that policy] before you came before this committee knowing we would ask you questions about that?"

HARRIS: "Sir, I'm not asking about the principle".

SCARBOROUGH: You know, Mika, another interesting thing that happened, and I have a feeling that you may want to talk about this because you talked about it before.

To those who have observed hearings on Capitol Hill, especially high-visibility televised hearings involving partisan subjects, there has been little or nothing unusual about Harris's behavior.

McCAIN: "Chairman, the witness should be allowed to answer the question". Harris challenged U.S. Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III on his evasiveness regarding his ties to Russia and meetings with Russian officials when he was an adviser for the Trump campaign. "It's just women that are usually called hysterical", said Powers.

It is absolutely crucial to note, as Brzezinski did, that the nature of the insult was two-fold: Harris is a Black woman being rudely and singularly admonished by the white men around her.

A former Trump aide called Senator Kamala Harris hysterical but provided no evidence of how her behavior fit the word's definition of being "uncontrollably emotional" or "irrational".
