Possible 2020 Candidate Kamala Harris Repeatedly Interrupts Witnesses

Harris has shown no qualms about repeatedly interrupting guests of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was rebuked by Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for interrupting and disrespecting witnesses at a hearing on Wednesday.

Harris first questioned National Security Agency (NSA) Chief Mike Rogers on why he will not disclose his conversations with President Trump.

Responding to a follow-up on the nature of classified information, Rogers said, “You can keep trying to trip me up,” before Harris interrupted him.

“Senator, could I get to respond?” Rogers asked.

“No, sir. No. No,” Harris responded, waving a finger at the admiral.

Later on, while questioning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Harris continuously interrupted the witness before Burr and McCain stepped in.

Rosenstein tried to explain that the answer to Harris’s question cannot boil down to a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer, which Harris would not accept.

“Mr. Chairman, they should be allowed to answer the question,” McCain said to Burr at this point.

Rosenstein assured Harris that the president cannot fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and she would have to trust the integrity of himself, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and Mueller.

Harris appeared unsatisfied with the answer, continually interrupting, “Yes or no, sir?”

At that point, Burr intervened, ending Harris’s ability to ask questions.

Harris took a similarly combative posture to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Tuesday.
