Sally Yates, called in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about Russian interference in American politics, is asked instead why she didn’t support Trump’s Muslim ban as acting Attorney General, the national security threat posed by Secretary Clinton’s email security, and who she thinks might have leaked news of Michael Flynn’s treason to the press.
