Sarah Sanders: Lawmakers Not ‘Smart Enough’ To Understand Trump’s Taxes

Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin testifies during a House Financial Services Committee Hearing on Capitol Hill

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave no assurance Sunday that President Donald Trump would stay out of the ongoing battle between the IRS and Democrats in Congress over access to Trump's tax returns.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told ABC News Saturday that the White House is reviewing a plan to bus migrants to these jurisdictions, but no formal request has been sent to the Department of Homeland Security yet.

"One of the biggest things that I think people aren't seeing is the fact that the only reason that the Oversight Committee has the ability to request someone's taxes are for the goal of determining policy", Sanders said, responding to the last "lightening round" question from Wallace. The campaign, with headquarters in Arlington, Va., has already announced a national press team and, one official said, plans to create a unit for the sole goal of waging war against the news media.

Members of the Trump administration, including acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, and their allies have called the request a political attack and a violation of Trump's privacy.

Falcon Heavy launch delayed again, now targeted for Thursday evening
As with the first Falcon Heavy mission in February 2018, the two side cores made a side-by-side landing along the Florida coast. The massive Falcon Heavy rocket was tested successfully in 2018 when it managed to carry a red Tesla roadster to space .


On Saturday, Trump tweeted a video suggesting that Omar, a USA representative from Minnesota, had been dismissive of the 9/11 attacks that destroyed New York's World Trade Center and struck the Pentagon outside Washington. Democrats have launched a sweeping probe of Trump, an aggressive investigation that threatens to shadow the president through the 2020 election season.

Prominent Democrats including Beto O'Rourke, Kamala Harris and Omar's fellow first-time Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez were quick to rush to Omar's defense, accusing the president and other Republicans of deliberately de-contextualizing her remarks and endangering her life.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee raised $46 million, and the AP reports the full Trump re-election has $82 million in the bank already.

"The President's words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger".

US Government Will Build Better Infrastructure For 5G Network: Donald Trump
The agency said he will talk about these 5G initiatives at a White House event with President Donald Trump later Friday. The FCC is taking very bold action, bolder than theyve ever taken before, to make wireless spectrum available.


Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott said President Donald Trump may not really believe in his own sanctuary city proposal, perhaps just floating the idea to "make everybody insane". "The bigger question is why aren't Democrats doing the same thing?"

"They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces", the speaker said. "Immigrants and refugees are part of Seattle's heritage, and they will continue to make us the city of the future", Durkan wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Friday. She apologized for suggesting that lawmakers support Israel for pay and said she isn't criticizing Jews.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat whose constituents include Manhattan's financial district, which was targeted on September 11, 2001, said he had no issues with Omar's characterization of the attack. "The issue is, I feel a responsibility that we get this right and the IRS does not become weaponized like it was under the Nixon administration".

Schaaf appeared on CNN and NPR's "Weekend Edition" to condemn the president's proposal, saying she was "proud to be the mayor of a sanctuary city".
