Do Not Cut Off Senator Kamala Harris, Or Twitter Will Come For You : LAist

Senator Kamala Harris was shut down mid-sentence (and mid-interrogation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein) by the Senate intelligence committee’s chairman, who clearly did not learn from the “Nevertheless, she persisted” debacle that when you cut off firebrand Democratic senators, Twitter comes for you, and it comes for you hard.CNN has a full transcript of the tense moment, in which Senate intelligence committee chairman Richard Burr interjected as Harris questioned Rosenstein over whether he would sign a letter to give Special Counsel Robert Mueller full independence from the Justice Department. Committee chairman Richard Burr cut Harris off as she pressed Rosenstein for “a yes-or-no answer,” asking her to “provide the witnesses the courtesy…for questions to get answered.” “As a career prosecutor and former Attorney General, Kamala Harris has run countless investigations, and she will follow the facts wherever they lead to get to the truth on behalf of the American people,” a spokesperson for Senator Harris’s office told LAist, adding, “That can only happen if witnesses answer questions.”
