The attorney general took the California senator’s questions in stride.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a liberal firebrand and possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, repeatedly interrupted Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Tuesday.
As Sessions answered Harris’ questions regarding contact between the Trump campaign and Russian nationals, the California senator cut off the attorney general’s answers.
At one point, Sessions shot back, “If I don’t qualify [the answer], you’ll accuse me of lying. So I need to be correct as best I can.”
“I’m not able to be rushed this fast. It makes me nervous,” Sessions said.
Later in the exchange, Harris questioned Sessions on his conversations with the president.
Sessions began to explain a Justice Department policy to Harris, before she interrupted again.
“Well, then, I’m unable to answer the question,” Sessions shrugged.
After a comment from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), committee chair Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) stepped in to allow Sessions to answer the question.
