Sara Sanders: 'I Don't Think Congress' is 'Smart Enough' to Look Through Trump's Taxes

Source: CNN:

Washington (CNN) -- White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Sunday that she doesn't think congressional Democrats are "smart enough" to review President Donald Trump's tax returns should they succeed in obtaining the documents.

"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 Trump's taxes will be," Sanders told "Fox News Sunday" 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 said, adding that attempts to obtain the returns are "a disgusting overreach."

2. The "dangerous road" is the one Trump will be going down

when forensic accountants hired by the committees get to analyze Trump's tax returns. These are people whose job is to examine documents and sniff out tax fraud, mail fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes.

5. "Thousands of pages"? I bet Congress would be satisfied initially without all the

supporting worksheet sub headings.

Also: "...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 said.

She's so delusional.

the IRS funding has been cut back year after year.

Gee, I wonder why that's happening?

53. I doubt that his returns have thousands of pages,

Even with the schedules included. If you included the supporting worksheets that are NOT filed, even then I suspect it wouldn’t reach 1000, but this is just another lie intended to insult and distract.

I would guess that the average IQ of the Dems in Congress is substantially higher than are Trump’s or SHS’s.

Sarah seems to have a counting problem as shown in her lies and smears re: FBI support for Comey.

Unlike you're side, our side looks to experts in their fields to come to conclusions. While you mau be proud to have a bachelor of animal husbandry running the Dept. Of Energy and someone who has no experience in education running the Dept. Of Education, rest assured, Comrade Combover's taxes will be pored over by experts in the field. You can lob childish insults till the cows come home, but expert analysis will happen.

On a more childish and partisan note, go fuck yourself!

Thanks Haggis! Just haven't had time. New position in a new department. Been putting in 18-20 hour days for weeks now. Unfortunately, it's being noticed. I may be up for promotion.

On the plus side, I'm being pulled out of the field. I start working from home tomorrow. I've been living in hotels during the work week for years. Gimme a few more weeks and, hopefully, I'll be back here slinging f bombs on the reg once again.

38. Lawyers tend to suck at tax analysis (unless they're tax lawyers), but

what is likely to happen is that the committee to which the returns are released will hire forensic accountants, whose whole purpose in life is following paper trails and finding financial crimes.

It occurs to me that Trump may have been trying to become the Max Bialystock of Atlantic City: "Under the right circumstances, a producer could actually make more money with a flop than he can with a hit."

All ye need to do is hook up with several Mafia-controlled suppliers who'll charge you $100 for an item but bill you $300, and who will split the overage with you.

43. Sara Sanders is the perfect spokesperson for a morally and intellectually bankrupt administration.

She has been subjected to intensive brainwashing from her infancy by a master charlatan. She is so oblivious to reality that she is a perfect match for a surrogate manipulator that replaced her father. She is a pathetic example of the destruction of a human being who has been transformed into a camp follower. It is obvious that she is incapable of independent thinking and willingly parrots anything she has been instructed to mouth. She is prime example of how a people can be literally destroyed and their capacity for independent reasonable cognitive judgements destroyed. She has been subjected to being told what to believe and what to say to such an extent that she is the perfect spokesperson for a pathological liar since she doesn't have the fortitude to resist. She is to be pitied rather than condemned and serve as a prime example of the danger of mind control. Independent people see her spewing insanely ridiculous nonsense and wonder how could a human being be that far removed from reality and shake their heads in wonder. Unfortunately, she is in good company with millions of her soul mates who have been convinced that facts are lies and lies are the truth. Welcome to 1984.

57. Sara of course..and the crowd of course...trusts "Chris Wallace"...

He is a mainstay of Fox News..a leader. Chris is an intelligent listener who abides by the Fox news rules..
And Fox pays him quite well. 9 or 10 figures well................but .....and I know this sounds absolutely crazy...so hang in there...............................................................................................................
................................................................................................................................................

I think Chris was somehow related to Mike Wallace. Mike was a symbol of "truth" Yes, I checked it out, Mike was Chris Wallace's father... Perhaps some day.. Chris will stand up for the truth. It could happen, and of course it might not happen. A father gives unto his son, the gift of what the father stood for...............perhaps....just perhaps when the time is totally perfect, Chris will stand up for the truth. Anything can happen. Chris is rich enough to take his money and run...Maybe, most likely not.

59. Here is a line about Chris Wallace and his moderating a 2016 Presidential Debate...(wikepedia)

This quote from Jennifer Rubin, from the Washington Post..

After he was selected, Wallace controversially said, "it's not my job" to fact-check candidates, but that it was the job of the opposing candidate.[18] But after the debate, Jennifer Rubin in The Washington Post said that despite her strong disapproval of other Fox News commentators, "No one could watch the final debate and deny that Chris Wallace is among the best in the business."[19]

We will see if this is true or if Chris is just another Fox clown.
