Senator Kamala Harris of California became a household name when her persistence in the Senate Intelligence Hearing proved no, she will not be deterred in the face of misogyny.
While questioning Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — the man whose memo was first used to justify President Trump's firing of former FBI head James Comey — Harris used her skills as a former prosecutor to get a simple yes or no answer.
When asked if he'd give Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, full independence in his work, Rosenstein would not give a yes or no. When Harris pressed, just as many of her male counterparts have done in the past, she was interrupted not once, but twice.
