White House denies Trump inciting violence against Muslim lawmaker

White House considered releasing detained immigrants into ‘sanctuary cities’ Trump confirms he'd like to send asylum seekers to sanctuary cities
Russell Knight | 14 April, 2019, 22:44

Neal, a Massachusetts Democrat, is the only House lawmaker authorized to request taxpayer data from the Treasury, which oversees the IRS.

"At no time has the President indicated, asked, directed or pressured the Acting Secretary to do anything illegal".

"I don't understand why the president's attracted to it at all", Stephanopoulos said.

Schaaf responded to President Donald Trump's tweet that noted it's "so interesting to see the Mayor of Oakland and other Sanctuary Cities NOT WANT our now "detained immigrants" after release due to the ridiculous court ordered 20 day rule".

But Trump seemed ready to step up his fight with the cities, vowing to "give them an unlimited supply" of immigrants from the border.

Mnuchin said that Treasury Department lawyers have been working "diligently" to research the issues involved and have been in contact with Justice Department attorneys. "But what we have now is a constant pushing of the system so that it doesn't work", Thompson (D-Miss.) said on ABC News' "This Week." Police in New York, Baltimore and Seattle rarely, if ever, disclose information about when suspected criminals in the USA illegally will be released from custody.

But on Saturday, he said the administration would respond by the revised deadline.

He could not say whether the Treasury, which oversees the IRS, would complete its review of Neal's request by April 23.

Former Obama Official Indicted in Charges Related to Mueller Probe
Craig maintains that he never concealed information or misled the Justice Department, and he is confident he'll beat the charges. Furthermore, Craig's charge of making false statements to the government is the same crime that Michael Flynn pled guilty for.

"The Committee's request raises serious issues concerning the constitutional scope of Congressional investigative authority, the legitimacy of the asserted legislative objective, and the constitutional right of American citizens", Mnuchin wrote.

"I never offered Pardons to Homeland Security Officials, never ordered anyone to close our Southern Border (although I have the absolute right to do so, and may if Mexico does not apprehend the illegals coming to our Border), and am not "frustrated".

In that letter, Mnuchin also questioned the scope of Congress's investigative authority and Neal's stated reason for the request - that he wants them to insure that the IRS is properly auditing presidents.

Last year, the city and county of Denver approved the Denver Public Safety Enforcement Priorities Act, which among other things, ordered the Denver Sheriff Department, which is in charge of the city's jails, not to seek federal funding that required the department to gather and release information about a person's immigration or citizenship status.

"The Supreme Court has instructed that Congress's power to investigate is "broad" and 'encompasses inquiries concerning the administration of existing laws as well as proposed or possible needed statutes, '" Neal wrote.

The issue appears sure to end up in federal court. Democrats argue that 6103 requests are made all the time and are routinely handled through the IRS, not under the supervision of the treasury secretary.
