White House press secretary Sarah Sanders stated lawmakers are not “smart enough” to look through Trump’s tax returns.
She appeared on “Fox News Sunday” as a battle is being waged over access to Trump’s financial records.
“This is a dangerous, dangerous road, and frankly, Chris, I don’t think Congress, particularly not this group of congressmen and women, are smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that president trumps taxes will be,” Sanders said to host Chris Wallace.
“My guess is most of them don’t do their own taxes and I certainly don’t trust them to look through the decades of success that the president has and determine anything,” she added.
“He has filled out hundreds of pages in a financial disclosure form and I think it is a disgusting overreach that they are making when they’re not doing this based on policy. And it puts every American who has filled out tax forms in the past — it puts them all at jeopardy. If they can single one, they can single out everybody.”
House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal sent out two letters to the IRS to release six years of President Trump’s tax returns. The first letter seta deadline till April 10. However, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin missed the deadline. Now, there is a new deadline and that is till April 23.
