WH In Full Panic Mode After Mnuchin Gave Away Their Coverup Of Trump In Disastrous Hearing
One easy-to-tell sign that someone is lying is when that person begins to get angry when they are confronted with that lie. That is exactly what Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin did this week after House Financial Services Chair Maxine Waters (D-CA) questioned him as to why he’s hiding Donald Trump’s tax returns.
Now, according to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, White House officials are worried over Mnuchin “losing his cool” and possibly giving away their cover.
Host John King cut to footage of Mnuchin’s testy exchange with Waters and cracked, “well, welcome to divided government.”
“Secretary Mnuchin works hard actually to keep pretty good open channels with the Democrats. How much of that — as he knows again the boss has a history with Maxine Waters?,” he said. “What was that?”
“You’re never supposed to lose your cool in a moment like that, and he certainly did,” said Collins, saying that he didn’t hold up as well as Bill Barr, who had been “peppered with questions” at his own hearing. “That just over timing and when he could leave that they got into such a heated debate.”
“Whether or not it’s wise is a question that people inside the White House are debating because, of course, she’s the chairwoman who conducts oversight of the department that he leads,” she continued. “So it’s probably best not to get into a fight with her over timing.”
