Kamala Harris Brutally Effective Against Sessions’ Stonewalling

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions took his turn in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee in the latest hearing into whether the Trump campaign or its associates colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.

Like his colleagues Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and NSA chief Mike Rogers before him, Sessions spent much of his testimony refusing to divulge private conversations with the President, citing privilege that Trump has never claimed.

Senator Kamala Harris was particularly effective in taking Sessions to task for his refusal to answer questions during the hearing.

Senator Harris followed up on Twitter.

Predictably, as happened at last week’s Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Harris was the only member of the committee who was repeatedly interrupted by her male colleagues during her questioning.

It did not go unnoticed.

Harris posted a link, urging her followers to support the women of the Senate, saying “The women of the United States Senate will not be silenced.”

The landing page goes on to say:

It’s happened to me, Elizabeth Warren, and countless others. Too often women are silenced in society and in the Senate. Make a contribution to defend the women of the Senate and fight back.

Senator Harris posted her entire line of questioning on Twitter, saying “The American people don’t deserve evasion — we deserve the truth.”
