Does The ‘House Committee On Oversight’ Have Any Plans To Question White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders?

by Anura Guruge

I keep on hearing that she works for us the Taxpayers rather than directly for Trump. She is said to be a Federal Government employee.

If so then why isn’t she answerable to the taxpayers — via our elected and paid representatives, the Members of Congress.

Her performance, or lack thereof, is troubling. She is not doing her job. She has stopped having press briefings and we have all heard how she has, since she started, taken great liberties with the truth.

So, why hasn’t the House called her in for a chat under oath?

Why is she being allowed to get away with her cavalier — and borderline obnoxious — behavior.

Yes, I am old enough to be her father. I would be so ashamed if she was my daughter! But, I think I lucked out. None of my daughters would stoop that low. While I can’t take any credit for it, they all have innate class. Huckabee Sanders, alas, never seems to have been exposed to that. I pity her father.

“Vera” Detective Series On “Acorn” Is Very Sophisticated, Touchingly Wry & Extremely British.

As I have mentioned here of late, Teischan (12) has become enthralled with British murder/mysteries of the Agatha Christie ilk. So, during our 90-minutes of family TV we try and watch shows that meet this criteria. Acorn — i.e., British TV for the U.S. — is obviously the best place to go looking, and since we subscribe it is not a problem.

We stumbled upon ‘Vera’ last week. We have watched 3.5 episodes so far and have been mesmerized. Very sophisticated, very clever, very complex plots. You can never guess who the perpetrator is going to be. Lots of twists and turns. Keeps you engrossed until the very end.

Really, really good. Teischan, who is highly critical on what she likes and doesn’t like, reckons that this is the BEST that she has seen! Coming from her that is indeed high praise. I definitely recommend it. Also features the picturesque but rugged Northumberland countryside (that I used to be somewhat familiar with).

Well, if you have access to Acorn, try it out. You will not regret it. Promise.
