Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Would Dan Weiss just minutes away. Right now, we welcome in San Antonio. I news national correspondent Michael Bauer. The latest on the president his Texas and is former White House counsel start with the Texas. It looks like says here that the Democrats laid us move is escalating on getting the I didn't know you could get any higher than where they're already at and trying to get those things. There was this whole belief that was going on Charlie last week when you had the Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin say that they weren't gonna turn over President Trump's six years of taxes that they were looking to get they weren't gonna turn that over the IRS of supported that element. There was a shot that it looked like House Ways, and means chairman Richard Neal would actually go to court directly right dead in order to fight that. But he held off number standing that.

You look at all this information. And if the president is right. They were being nothing in that information. It would all be boring, and and really in perceptible as far as what kind of information the public would need to know about. What's the latest found the President Mr Mcgann a bit of a conflict you had Friday. The White House. Corey reports on Friday the White House had requested former White House counsel, Don Mcgann publicly state that President Trump didn't obstruct Justice was one of two or three different times at the White House was trying to get Don Mcgann to make the statement. And again through his lawyers, Don Mcgann declined to make that statement. He had a reason for it through his lawyers indicated listen, you had the attorney general William bar already concluded there was insufficient evidence to accuse of criminal structures. So there's no reason for him to. Back off and make any other statements when the attorney general the.
