Today, the Senate Intelligence Committee questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions for several hours about his knowledge of the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, with each senator allotted only a few minutes to get their asks out there.

Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) started her line of questioning by reminding him of how often he chose to respond to questions with "I don't recall." Since his memory is so blank, did he ever keep any notes?

Harris continued to pummel Sessions with questions, which the attorney General said made him feel "nervous." Luckily, he had Senator John McCain (R-AZ) to come to his defense.

"Chairman...Chairman, the witness should be allowed to answer the question," McCain interrupted Harris, at which Sessions smiled and then laughed out loud. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), agreeing with McCain, implored Harris to pause in her questioning.

In case this scene seemed familiar, Senator Harris was also cut off while questioning deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein during a Senate hearing last week.
