Attorney General Jeff Sessions become very flustered when questioned by Senator Kamala Harris as he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday afternoon.

Sessions told the senator she was making him "nervous" as she continued to press him to be more forthcoming.

Harris, who's concerned to be a top contender for the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020, quickly became one of the top topics on Twitter after this moment.

At another point, Harris was interrupted, and Sessions appeared to chuckle.

This did not go over well with a lot of people.

Sessions was arguably quite obstinate throughout the hearing and refused to offer specifics in terms of conversations he had with President Donald Trump.

This was especially true when it came to the controversial dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

During the hearing Sessions was adamant he did not have any involvement in Russia's interference in the U.S. presidential election. He also said he didn't have any knowledge of other people associated with the Trump campaign colluding with Russia.

The attorney general was also quite firm in saying he did not lie about the nature of his communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the US presidential campaign.

Sessions has come under fire for an answer he gave to a question on this topic during his confirmation hearing for attorney general. Some have gone as far to accuse him of perjury, but he pressed hard against that notion in the hearing.

Long story short, the hearing did not offer any bombshell revelations, as Sessions often deflected and frequently uttered, "I don't recall."

But some were quite surprised when Sessions said he'd never been briefed on the topic of Russian interference in the US presidential election.

It's arguably quite strange the US attorney general has yet to attend an official briefing on what is unquestionably a major issue of concern.

This perhaps signifies the Trump administration has not made looking into Russian election interference a top priority.
