White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told Fox Sunday that she thought the current members of the U.S. house and senate “weren’t smart enough” to understand her boss’s tax returns. “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 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.” On Saturday, the House Ways and Means Committee gave the IRS an April 23 deadline to turn over the Trump’s personal and business tax returns.
